"The staff of Pet 'N Play are fantastic people - professional, thorough, kind and helpful. Not only did they take excellent care of our cat, they provided tremendous help when we were out of state and our basement flooded. Thanks to Katy and John our trip (and basement!) were not ruined!" Harmony

The Love Train is back on track (pardon the pun), but you may want to sign up for the Love Train newsletter, as the puppies are usually spoken for within an hour of being posted!
Thanks to successful intake prevention programs and community support for adoption, along with grants and wonderful donors, HSHV is able to transport animals — often puppies! — from struggling rescues and shelters with high euthanasia rates to HSHV via the Love Train.
Be sure to follow our Facebook page, as we will be posting pictures of the available dogs on the Thursday before the adoption events!
If you're interested in adoption, you can see the application (really, a profile) and fees at hshv.org/howtoadopt. Feel free to complete it online, or you complete it when you're here. HSHV is first-come, first-approved, first-adopted-- so the closer you come to 11 on Friday, the more selection you'll have-- and to better serve you, please grab a number when you get here (the "take a number" will be placed outside HSHV between 7:30-8 am on Friday. Some people come here early, grab a number, then go get coffee at Moonwinks down the road, and return at 11 a.m. when we open).
Thank you for your interest in rescuing a homeless animal and for your support of this life-saving program! To see more about the Love Train, go to hshv.org/lovetrain.
There are also lots of great dog events throughout the state. Traveling around Michigan? Love dogs and dog events, like dog shows, obedience, rally, scent, games and other events? Then check out the Michigan Canine Resource Guide Calendar of events!
