Featured Pet: Louise

This pup is a sweet, fun-loving girl who would love to be the center of attention as the only pet in your life! Poor Louise had a rough start to life, so she's looking for an understanding owner with older, respectful children, who want to shower her with love! She enjoys being around her people and likes playing with toys. Louise would do especially well with a yard to safely play in with her family! If you're interested in adopting Louise, please visit our website at

HSWM Blood Drive

Giving truly does warm the heart! We know this community is full of so many people with giving spirits so we'd like to invite you to join us at HSWM for our Blood Drive! In February, severe weather and seasonal illness can make it particularly difficult for Versiti Blood Center to maintain a sufficient blood supply, so your donation can give hope and strength to patients in need! Versiti is the only blood bank that provides blood to every hospital in the Grand Rapids area and their supplies are running dangerously low, so please consider giving if you can!

The Versiti Blood Bus will be stationed in the Humane Society of West Michigan parking lot on Saturday, February 20, and will be accepting donations from 11 a.m to 3 p.m.

Sign up here to schedule your donor appointment, or visit the HSWM Facebook event page for further details. Walk-ins are also welcome!

Fostering Saves Lives!

Interested in supporting the Humane Society of West Michigan in a way that’s easy and cost-effective? Consider joining our foster program!

As more and more people go back to work, the number of active fosters has begun to dwindle as well, and HSWM is hoping to find some more. Fostering is rewarding and fun, and HSWM provides fosters with everything they require--from finding the perfect pet for their home, offering advice and vet care, and giving our fosters all of the necessary supplies.
