The Pet Adoption Center
Primarily a foster-based rescue, we realized a dream when we opened the Pet Adoption Center (PAC) in March of 2012. This beautiful Victorian house built in 1874 serves as STH’s headquarters. It also houses up to 30 cats at a time and allows potential adopters to meet them in a home-like setting. Visitors have said that the PAC is a magical place. We agree – it’s magical for both cats and cat lovers alike!
We leased the property for 5 years before purchasing it in April of 2017. We worked hard for the ability to purchase it and did so with the help of several generous donors.
The cats who live at the PAC came from their foster home to spend some time hoping to meet their forever humans. Potential adopters can visit the cats in the cat’s natural environment.
We are licensed by the Michigan Department of Agriculture as an animal shelter.
The cats are cared for daily by volunteers who spend a couple hours cleaning up and spending time with the cats. Learn more about volunteering here.
We are currently closed to the public due to COVID. In normal times, we are happy to give visitors a tour of the facility during our open hours. We also offer group tours on a requested basis. We hope to be able to do this again soon.
