Their site says they take walk-ins between 10-2. I called yesterday to find out how busy they were. Was told not busy at the moment. I said I would make it there at 1:00. I wasnt able to make it in. I show up today at 12:15 and was told

I have had only positive experiences with the Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society. I've called three or four times in the last three years about what I saw as neglect cases. They visited the homes and the situations were corrected. They may not have the nicest facility, but they certainly do the best with what they have.

This organization was a joy to work with! I met and fell in love with my kitty and had papers signed and out the door within an hour and a half.

They called my vet, verified I was taking care of my other cats and I was out the door with my little darling.

I don't understand why some folks are having problems with adoption, but it's much easier to try to adopt when your vet is open and they can call for verification.

My little girl loves her new forever home and I'm thrilled with her!

I've been trying to adopt an animal and the place made it impossible, claiming that they could not find any vet records for my animals they I already have, yet the records I gave them were never verified, even though one of my animals was taken to the vet who works in the same building, next door to them. The reason they gave me was: "I don't know what happened" each time, and, to make up for their incompetence by telling me that I should have been practicing more preventive care for my animals and then the records would be easier to find (because going once a year is wrong, even if your animals are fine). I made numerous phone calls to inquire about the status of our application and each time we talked to someone else. No one knew what was going on and the final comment I heard was that I could go elsewhere. They clearly do not care what happens to the animals, nor are they helpful in trying to find them home. It is common knowledge that they euthanize big numbers of cats and dogs that are taken to them, yet when I confronted one of their employees about how harmful their approach and attitude to potential adoptive owners is when it comes to the fate of all the abandoned animals that this organization clearly prefers to kill than to find home for, I heard that they play with their cats and comb them regularly. I find it shocking and absurd how disinterested they are in the fate of their animals, and I wonder if there is actually anyone who oversees how the place is run. Not from economic angle, but humanitarian, of course. I am saying all this not to discourage potential pet owners from going there. Quite opposite. Please, go there and try to adopt your future pet from there or else these animals have a horrible fate awaiting them!!!!! I would like to know what to do to improve this situation because I fear for the lives of all the animals that end up in this place. If there are at least a couple of people in the office each day, yet they do not process the request in timely fashion nor do they strive to improve the fate of the animals they supposedly protect, then what are they doing there? Is this an anti-cruelty society or a pest-control office?

I AGREE! this place is bad... i found a kitten outside who needed a home and i took him in there, this kitten was about the sweetest kitten ever, constantly purring, still very small, only a month old.. i went in this place and they opened the door to the cat room, full of cats, at least 30, and they threw him in there and closed the door. they would not tell me any info on what is to be expected other than he will go to foster care untill adoption. a few weeks later i checked on their petfinder page and saw they had hardly any cats posted, and he was not one of them either. i expected to see tons of cats posted since i saw so many in the cages that day, and i expected to see him for sure since he was so young and purrfull and highly adoptable.. all those cats and kittens are dead..\r\ni emailed them about it and no reply, i checked the site again and he was never posted. when i brought him in, he had fleas and worms, and was very skinny.. what i think is going on is, if a cat is brought in and needs some basic vet care to be performed before it can be adopted out, this costs them money.. and there will be no profit if they have to spend money to make a cat adoptable.. so i think they desroy all who do not bring in profit, only adopting out animals who are allready adoptable, and not in need of any vet care or medications. \r\ni have ben rescuing cats on my own for a few years now. there are other shelters out there that dont euthenize, if you have to bring in an animal to surrender.\r\nbut i also think, if you are looking to adopt, please please go save one from this awful place because im sure they only give the ones they are adopting out a week or so to find a home before they too are euthenized.\r\noh and btw, about a month later i found that kittens brother and sister living under and ice cream truck.. i took them both into my home and have them still to this day! they are 8 months old and very fat and healthy. so that just goes to show they destroyed a healthy cat...

Pros: no pros, but yes, please adopt the cats from them so you can save a life that only gets a few days to find a home before euthinization

Cons: they destroy life, healthy animals who just wanted someone to love...

It happened to me: Don't let this happen to you!\r\n\r\nMACS will destory ALL pitbulls that enter that shelter: no exception. They also destroy adoptable dogs and cats and will not work with rescue groups.

Pros: Nothing good about this place. Run by tyrants.

Cons: It is all about killling here.

They run the place like a rundown hubble, when they are rich in benefactors and are a million-dollar operation. Big-time killing shelter. Euthanizes rather than work with rescue groups. Are not forthright about policy.\r\n\r\nRating is -1, but system would not allow that. Had to give it one star regretfully.
