We all need help sometimes and we want to help if we can.

Our mission is to help all pets have a loving home. Sometimes that means they need a new home or some temporary support to stay in their current home. Below you will find information on the ways we can help you. If you have any additional questions, call us.

Rehoming a Pet:

If you have a cat or dog that you need to have re-homed, please fill out one of the Intake Forms below.  We can only take animals when we have space and they must pass the intake assessment. This form does not guarantee we can or will take your animal. We cannot take in strays. All strays need to be reported to your local animal control at 269-383-8775.

You may also trying re-homing your cat or dog on your own through rehome.adoptapet.com


Need to Spay/Neuter my pet:

Kalamazueter is a special program that takes place once a year where we spay/neuter as many cats and dogs as we can fit into 2 days, free of charge, for those that cannot afford it. This program has limited space and may be limited to specific zip codes. More information on the event will be made public once all details are finalized.

You can also contact the Kalamazoo Humane Society for spaying/neutering at a lower cost.  269-345-1181.


I need help with Veterinary Expenses:

Sorry, currently we are not able to assist with medical expenses for your pets





Domestic Abuse Assistance

Jointly sponsored by the YWCA of Kalamazoo, My Sister’s House supports pets in transition. We help at risk families by assisting with pet needs. For a successful new start, when families are settled, the shelter helps with treats, toys and food. If you enrolled in or soon to be enrolled in the YWCA Domestic Violence Support Program and you need us to temporarily house your pet, please email Katie at katie@spcaswmich.org.


Need Pet Food

No one likes to be hungry. The SPCA of Southwest Michigan partners with area food banks to help provide food for cats and dogs in need of assistance. You can stop in at the shelter during regular business hours to pick up some food to help you through the month. You can also pick up pet food on the last Saturday of every month at St Andrew Community Church (dates may change during holiday season). Call the shelter for more information 269-344-1474.


Need a Dog House for outside pet

It gets darn cold in Michigan! Our Cold Noses Warm Hearts initiative helps outdoor pets stay warm! Help SPCA staff and volunteers as we coordinate food and build warm shelters for our furry friends! If you are in need of a dog house to keep your outside pet warm and dry, please either email info@spcaswmich.org or call 269-344-1474.
