Transfer an Animal - The Love Train
While the Humane Society of Huron Valley primarily serves the residents of Washtenaw County, we do occasionally take transfers from other organizations via our Love Train transport program.
In order to best serve these transfer animals while continuing to provide excellent service to the people and animals from our own county, we do have some requirements and guidelines for organizations wishing to transfer animals to us.
- HSHV is very proud of our pitbull adoption program, and we are great lovers of the breed. We are currently working on Washtenaw County’s pitbull overpopulation, and will not be able to accept any pitbulls or pitbull mixes as transfers from other areas. This also includes dogs listed as other breeds, but have a pitbull-like appearance.
- Transfers will only be considered when our shelter has enough space to healthily and humanely house them.
- In order to avoid any unnecessary stress that an animal may go through by way of transfer, we can only accept healthy or easily treatable animals-- those who have the best chance of finding a loving home.
- HSHV also has specific medical and behavioral requirements of shelters wishing to transfer animals.
If you have any questions regarding this process, HSHV’s transfer policies, or to inquire about transferring an animal or participation in the Love Train transfer program, please contact our Intake Manager Karie McMahon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
