The SPCA of South West Michigan is a no-kill shelter, dedicated to working for the well-being of animals and creating an adoption-focused community in Southwest Michigan. Our goal is to end senseless animal euthanasia in SW Michigan, and provide all animals with a loving, caring home.
The SPCA of Southwest Michigan is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit animal welfare organization and does not receive funding from any government agency or national organization. We rely solely on individual contributions.
The SPCA Southwest Michigan is not a county pound facility, but has a cooperative relationship with many of these agencies throughout the region to help save lives.
Adoption fees help cover the cost of medical services, ranging from basic vaccinations to serious, life-saving surgeries. However, fees only cover a portion of our expenses — which is why we depend on private donations.
Educational programs, spay and neuter to prevent pet overpopulation, providing pet food to local food banks to reduce pet relinquishment, and offering temporary housing resources for the elderly — are some of the things that set SPCA Southwest Michigan apart from other area organizations.
The SPCA holds many fun fundraiser events such as 5k Doggie Dash, Dog O’ Ween, Puppy Love, Puppy and Kitten Showers to name a few. These events help raise extra funds, bring awareness, and allows the SPCA to be more connected with our Kalamazoo Community.

We adopted Chloe when she was 8 years old, about 4 years ago. GLWR made sure we got the perfect fit for our family. She is now 12 and honestly the best dog I have ever had (don't tell my first Weim)! They were honest, efficient, and really care about the dogs. Keep up the great work!
