Facility and Hours

Little Traverse Bay Humane Society was designed to make our shelter animals comfortable, healthy and calm while they wait to find their forever homes.

Our facility provides shelter to more than 40 cats and 20 dogs at a time. The building has radiant heat for warm, dry floors and a high efficient ventilation system. While in our care, dogs enjoy outdoor exercise in our kennels and play yards, where they can dig and run through the woods. Their indoor kennels are roomy and well lit. Our “kitty condos” provide cats with room to stretch and sleep. Cats also enjoy free range throughout the shelter. On a daily basis, visitors can see cats curled up on beds and shelves or lying on windowsills. Prior to adoption, all animals are sterilized, vaccinated, treated for fleas, and fed a nutritious diet. Dogs are also heartworm tested and micro-chipped.

Our community-based spay/neuter program puts LTBHS in the position to help other traditional, kill shelters by rescuing animals and giving them a true second chance. In fact, our volunteers travel throughout the country to meet rescue groups. For years we have had an agreement with our county facility in which we take 100-percent of their adoptable dogs.

With more than 500 adoptions a year, consider for a moment what would happen if we weren’t here to offer homeless animals a safe place to stay while they await their forever homes. Now think about the many animals your tax-deductible donations help to vaccinate, groom, feed, house and love!

Please ensure that every animal who comes through our doors receives exceptional care. Become a member of the Little Traverse Bay Humane Society today.
