Humane Society Needs a New Home

Humane Society Needs a New Home

‘Founded in 1965, the Humane Society hosted local pet events, advocated against the sale of shelter animals to research facilities, discussed the appropriate euthanasia methods for unwanted animals, and fostered dogs and cats in area homes, among other activities. The Humane Society of Midland County, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, operated for decades as the Midland County Humane Society before moving into its current location at 4371 E. Ashman St in 2011. The 2,500 square-foot building, located on three acres of land, was built as an animal shelter in 1970. While the facility may have been adequate to temporarily house animals, and act as headquarters for Midland County Animal Control, it is now too crowded, out of date and unsanitary.’

“The nonprofit organization works hard to find good, loving homes for unwanted and abused animals. However, now the Humane Society itself is in need of a new home.”

“The organization owns a 10-acre parcel of land across the street from their location, donated by Dow, but they need more donations to build a new shelter. Wellman said it would take at least $2 million to build a new facility. The organization is planning to kick off a capital campaign in the near future. If you are interested in the campaign for a new facility email Donations to the Humane Society can be made through For more information, visit or call 989-835-1877.”
