Our Story

The Humane Society of Bay County, Inc is a non-government entity with a 501c3 status.

Our organization began in the mid-1980’s, formed by a passionate group of incredible community members who were determined to make a difference.  Their dedication to ending unnecessary euthanization and animal cruelty helped fuel a no-kill nation and shine a beacon of hope in the state of Michigan.  

Today, we are grateful to live in a state where we no longer have to euthanize.  While we are still fighting for a higher rate of prosecution and firmer sentencing for those prosecuted, we are grateful for the progress made over these last 40 years.  

While there are still results to produce, HSBC is glad to be able to offer other solutions to help our communities and those communities that do not have resources.  Our TNR program helps in the over population of feral cats and provides prevention to stop communicable diseases. 

We are proud to work directly with All About Animals in Flint to provide low-cost spay, neuter, and vaccines for our community.  

HSBC is proud to locally partner with PetSmart, Pet Supplies Plus, and Soldan’s.  Their partnerships allow us to help more cats by giving them adoption space.  But, for the cats that might be more difficult to adopt due to a chronic health condition, age, or being extra shy, we have our 9Lives Cattery at our building.  Come and meet these wonderful cats during our regular business hours.

Our Humane Society also offers help to surrounding Animal Control facilities to help relieve them during this unwanted pet crisis.  We do this by accepting dogs and cats into our foster program and provide them with much needed medical care, training, as well as food, grooming, and love.  Once these pets are rehabilitated, they are adopted into loving, forever homes.
