View our adoptable dogs and select the one, or ones, you might be interested in. While you’re searching for the perfect pet to adopt, we can pre-qualify your adoption application and streamline the adoption process for you. Download, complete and submit our adoption application, even if you have not yet selected your new family member. For your convenience, you may download and submit your completed application either by fax to 989.343.7387, scan and send it back in as either a pdf image or a high-res jpg via our email email@example.com adoption-application-2014 or drop it in the mail to: Ogemaw County Humane Society, 1367 S. M-33, West Branch, MI 48661. You may also download the application, fill it out and bring it with you to OCHS when you come to meet the new addition to your family.
Make an appointment and visit our shelter at 1367 South M-33 in West Branch to meet with the pet(s) you have selected. Staff will be more than happy to facilitate a “get acquainted” meet and greet, but we are currently showing pets by appointment only. We are also available to answer questions you may have about the animal. We are here to help!
Sign our adoption-application-2014which asks you to agree to certain things about your new family member and pay our affordable adoption fee of $225 for a dog under 5 years old or a puppy up to 6 months of age (includes spay/neuter (when puppies turn 6 months of age), micro chip, and vaccines that it has received) Our senior pets are $75.00 (this includes their spay/neuter, micro chip, and vaccines that they have received) Our Pits and Pit mixes over 6 months of age have an adoption fee of $150.00 (this includes their spay/neuter, micro chip, and vaccines that they have received). We do offer home visits for all dogs over 6 months of age. You must leave a $50 deposit, fill out our adoption application, leave a copy of your drivers license, and make sure the pet is on a lead at all times while in your care if you do not have a fenced in area. ALL PETS WILL BE MICRO CHIPPED WHEN LEAVING THE SHELTER. Once you decide if this pet is a perfect fit for your home (usually about 3 days is allotted), you may either bring them back for a refund if they do not work out, or you may then complete the adoption and we will schedule their spay/neuter appointment through one of our 5 veterinary clinics that is most convenient for you. Adoption fees are non-refundable. Now comes the fun part…make an appointment, come in an meet your furry friend, and make the decision to take your new friend home and enjoy him or her!
