The Humane Animal Treatment Society (HATS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization that is independently operated, serving the Mid-Michigan area. HATS is contracted to be the sole provider of all animal care and adoption services at the Isabella County Animal Control facility. Each year we help nearly 1,000 homeless or lost pets; providing food, vaccinations, veterinary care, and a clean, safe environment while they await placement in their forever homes or a safe return to their owner. We also operate the HATS Health Clinic which provides low-cost spay and neuter services to help reduce animal overpopulation in our community.
Our organization relies on donations, local community support, and grant funds to allow us to continue our lifesaving services. Each day we make our community a better place for homeless animals by giving them a second chance at life with the opportunity to receive the medical care and behavioral support they need to make their way into a loving forever home. We continuously strive to educate our community on responsible pet ownership, provide support for pet owners in times of need, and as always, promote the humane treatment of all animals.
Our adoption process is designed to find the perfect animal for each adopter. Adoption is a life long commitment so we do our best to ensure that we are finding good matches, for both human and animal. Our staff will assist you in finding a match based on your lifestyle, living situation, and activity level, not purely on breed or color.
Please visit our website to see adoption pricing, what's included with an adoption, and how to begin the process. If you find an animal, or several, that you would like to meet, please submit our online adoption application. After submitting an application, we encourage potential adopters to call and set appointments to ensure an adoption counselor is available to assist you.
