Folks can once again drop in at Michiana Humane Society to look for a pet


Michiana Humane Society, 722 Ind. 212, Michigan City, has reopened its doors to people seeking to adopt animals. The shelter had been limited to appointments only since June 1, 2020, because of the pandemic.

“Starting July 1, we are unlocking the door!” a shelter press release annouced. “We hope you will pop in to visit the animals. While restricting entrance helped to keep our staff and visitors safe, it has meant some lonely time for the animals. We are very excited to have people visiting again!

“Remember, if you are coming in for a specific transaction such as an adoption contract, surrendering an animal or introducing your dog to another, you still need an appointment so that our staff can give you undivided attention. But if you’re in the Michigan City area with an hour free, stop in and walk through. We do ask that people respect others and wear a mask if you are not vaccinated. We will do the same for you!”

Shelter staffers report that they are “bursting with dogs and cats at the moment, and the wait list is full of pets in need of a room. If you have space in your home and your heart, help us out and find a new pet to adopt.”

Available pets and more information on the shelter may be viewed at Call (219) 872-4499. The shelter’s hours are: Monday, 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Thursday, 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.; Friday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The shelter will be closed July 4.
