July is Shelter Cat Month!

We celebrate cats and kittens this month, and all the ways that they make our lives better– the warm purr of a furry friend cuddling with you; the delight when a kitten chases a toy; the simplicity of a pet that is generally easy to care for. Everyone should have a cat or two in their home! So in recognition of Shelter Cat Month, we are offering 2-for-1 on cats all month long!

Whatever you want in the way of cats, be it kittens or adult cats, we’re sure to be able to help! View our animals on our Petfinder page or visit our shelter to meet your new best friend. And on a serious note, when you adopt from MHS, you help to reduce the overpopulation of cats in our area. We thank you for that!

Junior Achievement pupils get a Humane Society education ~ Third-graders learn about local shelter
MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. — Learning about the world of business involved a wagging tail and plenty of purring for two classes of New Buffalo Elementary School third-graders on Thursday, Feb. 20. The pupils paid a Junior Achievement-sponsored visit to the Michiana Humane Society at 722 U.S. 212 in Michigan City. In addition to touring the facility and enjoying up-close encounters with a happy puppy and a friendly cat, students learned about the non-profit organization’s operations. READ MORE
IMPORTANCE OF SPAY/NEUTER…
Pets are homeless everywhere. In every community, in every state, there are homeless animals. In the U.S., there are an estimated 6-8 million homeless animals entering animal shelters every year. The number of homeless animals varies by state—in some states there are as many as 300,000 homeless animals euthanized in animal shelters every year. These are not the offspring of homeless “street” animals—these are the puppies and kittens of cherished family pets and even purebreds. Spay/neuter is the only permanent, 100 percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats. READ MORE
