OUR MISSIONThe SPCA of Southwest Michigan is a no-kill shelter, dedicated to working for the well-being of animals and creating an adoption-focused community in Southwest Michigan. Our goal is to end senseless animal euthanasia in SW Michigan, and provide all animals with a loving, caring home.
The SPCA of Southwest Michigan has been rescuing homeless cats and dogs since 2002.
The SPCA Southwest Michigan is not a county pound facility, but has a cooperative relationship with many of these agencies throughout the region to help save lives.
Every animal’s well-being is our main goal. They are provided with medical care, daily environment enrichment and socialization.
Adoption fees help cover the cost of medical services, ranging from basic vaccinations to serious, life-saving surgeries. However, fees only cover a portion of our expenses — which is why we depend on private donations.
We’re also about prevention and have different programs in place to assist.
Educational programs, spay and neuter to prevent pet overpopulation, providing pet food to local food banks to reduce pet relinquishment, and offering temporary housing resources for the elderly — are some of the things that set SPCA Southwest Michigan apart from other area organizations.
We do fun fundraising events to involve our community.
The SPCA holds many fun fundraiser events such as 5k Doggie Dash, Dog O’ Ween, Puppy Love, Puppy and Kitten Showers to name a few. These events help raise extra funds, bring awareness, and allows the SPCA to be more connected with our Kalamazoo Community.

Since 2002, over twenty-five thousand pets have been saved. Euthanizations have dropped 60% at Michigan animal shelters since 2012, as a higher proportion of cats and dogs are being adopted, according to numbers collected by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

ANY amount you are able to donate, either as a one time, recurring, or endowment gift will benefit homeless animals in our community.
