Kirby is ready to find the loving home he never knew...
My name is Kirby! I'm a VERY FRIENDLY, AFFECTIONATE Lab mix born around 2007.
I am an ACTIVE boy who would LOVE to have a fenced yard to run and play in!
When I first came to the shelter, I was not in very good condition. I had not been neutered and needed some behavior training. But, now after receiving such great care from the staff and volunteers here, my outlook has greatly improved!
I have been neutered and kept up to date with vaccines. I am much calmer now, housetrained, and have learned to walk nicely on a leash. I may still be a little shy at first and may need a little extra help learning the routine in my new home, but I am eager to please and anxious to find someone who will give me the loving home I deserve, but never knew!

Willow's story... Eight Hundred Mile Journey Has a Happy Ending
An unsuspecting driver of a semi-truck was in for a surprise recently after traveling from New York to Michigan - there was a cat in his engine compartment! Once discovered, the driver kindly brought the cat to our shelter and was examined by our vet, Dr. Laura Balli. Injuries suffered during her trip included a broken leg and pelvis which meant she needed surgery at a local vet clinic as our clinic is not equipped for special surgeries. Countryside in Howell performed the repairs, inserting a permanent pin, meaning she should make a complete recovery!
Given the cost of such a serious surgery, we welcome any donations for her to help recover vet bills. Please spread the word about this sweet cat who has been given a second chance in life! Willow is doing well and now ready for adoption! Read more>>
Microchip: A Decision You Won't Regret!
The thought of your pet running away is certainly scary, but thereís one thing that can help ease your worries, and thatís micro chipping your pet. In fact, a microchip recently helped HSLC connect a lost pet with its owner in Kansas!
We offer microchip services to the public for only $20 at any of our scheduled clinics. A tiny chip is implanted into your dog or cat and contains pertinent owner information. With a quick scan of the chip, a vet or animal shelter can immediately tell who the owner is of the lost animal. Your pet's information will be registered for the life of your pet. And, unlike some other microchip products, there is NO ANNUAL FEE or additional cost.
It is never too late (or too soon) to take this simple, low cost step to help identify your pet if ever lost... It's a decision you won't regret!
Thanks to everyone who helped make
