Who We Are and What We Do.
The HHS is a nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for the homeless dogs and cats of Alpena County. Our facility is usually pretty full with 20+ dogs and 80+ cats on any given day. We are a no-kill shelter and will work to heal and rehabilitate the pets that come through our doors. While we cooperate with local governments to provide services to the surrounding city, township and county, we rely on private donations to keep our doors open.
The Huron Humane Society offers a variety of services to local residents. Among them are:
- providing shelter for stray and lost pets
- locating suitable homes for the pets
- Rehabilitating ill and injured dogs and cats
- working with owners to re-home their animals
- providing microchipping to the general community
- supporting spay and neuter efforts
- obtaining full veterinary services for all pets in our care
- microchipping service to the community
- school and nursing home pet visitations
Our Mission: to provide no-kill solutions to reduce the number of homeless cats and dogs through education, rehabilitation and re-homing.

The Huron Humane Society of Alpena Michigan has fallen on the hard times of the economy. As the costs rise, and the number of animals we take in has risen, we are fighting hard to keep our doors open so that we can continue to save as many animals as we can. We are in dire need of continued funding to be able to keep our doors open. We are a No-Kill Shelter, who houses over 75 cats, and 40 dogs at any given time. Our food cost alone is well over $1,000 a month. Add in Veterinary, Electricity, Heat, Garbage Disposal, Insurance, Taxes, Employees and all of out other expenses, and on average, it can cost over $15,000 PER MONTH to keep our doors open. We battle this number every month! Our shelter is over 87% privately funded!! That means we can only stay open with YOUR help! If you can donate anything, please do. Please share this campaign! Help us Save Our Shelter!
