Facility and Hours
Each year, we care for 500-plus homeless animals at our shelter. The building has radiant heat for warm, dry floors and a high efficient ventilation system. While in our care, dogs enjoy outdoor exercise in our kennels and play yards, where they can dig and run through the woods. Their indoor kennels are roomy and well lit. Our “kitty condos” provide cats with room to stretch and sleep. Cats also enjoy free range throughout the shelter. On a daily basis, visitors can see cats curled up on beds and shelves or lying on windowsills. Prior to adoption, all animals are sterilized, vaccinated, treated for fleas, and fed a nutritious diet. Dogs are also heartworm tested and micro-chipped.
Our community-based spay/neuter program puts LTBHS in the position to help other traditional shelters by rescuing animals and giving them a true second chance. Our Transport Program has grown significantly since it began in 2005. We now work with several shelters and rescue groups throughout Michigan and across the country to save as many animals as possible.
With more than 500 adoptions a year, we aim to be a safe place to stay while they await their forever homes. We are extremely grateful for a caring community of generous donors who help us continue our lifesaving work!
