  • As a response to the current Coronavirus/COVID-19 situation, The Humane Society of Genesee County (HSGC) will be closing to the public until further notice based on recommendations from the CDC and Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. We are taking these precautionary measures as a commitment to the health and safety of the animals in our care, as well as our staff, volunteers, and general public.

    Effective Monday, March 23rd, 2020 at 4:00 pm, we are suspending adoption and surrender services until further notice.
    The 22nd Annual Paws on Parade Champagne Brunch and Auction originally scheduled for Sunday, April 26, 2020, is also being postponed.

    Our highest priority as we navigate the spread and impact of COVID-19 is the continued care for our shelter pets. We know this is a stressful time, but we will continue to be here for the animals and ask that you continue your critical support to HSGC by making a donation today.

    We ask that you keep your family and pets safe by following the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services Recommendations for COVID-19. You can review the guidelines here.

    Thank you for your patience as we make these temporary changes to our operations. Please watch for continuing updates through email, social media, and our website at www.geneseehumane.org.

  • We are proud to share with you our first-ever annual report. Inside these pages, you will find the stories of people like you who have stepped up to answer the call of animals in need. Sharing the HSGC financial information with you is important, and that is why we are including the breakdown of the annual budget and how funds are spent. You will also find stories and statistics in this report on the number of volunteers, how may cruelty complaints are handled, and the number of surgeries performed that help control the pet population in the county.
