Looking to add a new furry friend to your family? Meet 4 year-old dog, Diamond currently at the Humane Society of West Michigan.

Diamond is the very definition of an elegant lady! She'd love to find a quiet, peaceful home where she can be the center of attention as your only baby, furry or otherwise. Diamond is definitely a girl's girl and prefers the company of women over men, but she can be won over with time and trust. Diamond has been in our care for over 150 days and is ready to be adopted, or find a loving foster home. This gorgeous girl is very generous, and would be more than happy to share her beauty secrets with her new furever family!

$15 Microchipping Service is BACK!

HSWM is thrilled to announce that their $15 walk-in microchipping service is BACK! Just in time for the holidays, when guests are often coming and going and it's easy for your pet to slip out of the house unnoticed, it’s important to make sure your pets are microchipped. It's a super simple and easy way to ensure that if your pet ever gets lost, they can make their way back home to you safe and sound!

Microchipping can sometimes be costly and awkward, especially with how tricky it can be to get an appointment with your vet’s office during COVID, so HSWM has decided to offer a walk-in microchipping service through our admitting department for any owned pet, Tuesday through Friday, from 1-4pm! Stop by whenever you're free this week with your furry family members, all it takes is $15, either cash or card, to protect your pet for life!
