Meet Tangi! She's a sweet girl looking for a home where she can be the center of attention as the one and only pet. Tangi loves being with her people and playing with toys. A home with a yard would be a dream come true for her to safely run and play!
Tangi is available this week as part of Empty the Shelters! To learn more about how you can meet her please visit

Bark in the Dark (Kick off party is October 3, 11am-7pm at Humane Society of West Michigan) We know 2020 has brought a lot of changes, including to this year's event. But don't worry - this event will still bring lots of fun, in-person and virtual opportunities, and support for a great mission that needs you!
The Bark in the Dark event festivities will begin on Saturday, October 3rd with an in-person kickoff at HSWM. This event will be an opportunity for you to pick up your wag bag, visit fun sponsor booths, sign up to walk or run in our Dog Day Out program, and even meet some adoptable dogs!
The week following the kickoff there will be fun daily themes, voting for the pet costume contest, virtual check-ins, and tons of excitement. Each participant will have the opportunity to pledge to walk the distance of their choice and fundraise from their network to support their efforts and the animals at HSWM!

Tickets: $35 for adults, $15 for ages 5-21, and kids under 5 are free. Ticket prices include a wag bag filled with goodies for you and your furry friend from our generous sponsors, a limited edition Bark in the Dark t-shirt, and (for the over 21 crowd) two beverages to take home and enjoy throughout the week! Tickets may be purchased online at or by calling (616) 791-8089.
