Muskegon Humane Society is a no-kill, 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving as a shelter for mistreated and abandoned cats and dogs in Muskegon County.
Contracted by the County of Muskegon, Pound Buddies is an “open-admission” shelter obligated to take in all stray dogs, dogs or cats under quarantine, as well as dogs and cats involved in court cases. We are not required to take in “owner-surrendered” dogs; however, if there is room and a person cannot or will not keep his /her dog , we try to take it in, particularly if abandonment is a likely outcome. It is in the best interest of the animal if the owner houses the pet while we jointly try to find it a new home.
MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – Connie Karry, director of Pound Buddies, Muskegon County’s animal shelter, just wants animal cruelty and abandonment to go away for good.
