Not All Animals Come Wrapped In Perfect Packages

. . But All Animals Have Feelings.

From healthy and cute to abandoned and starving, MACS remains committed to providing every animal with the best possible treatment. For many animals MACS is their only hope and often their last refuge. That is why for more than 65 years we have steadfastly held to our mission to care for all the animals regardless of their community’s social status. Payment is never required for an animal brought in by one of our rescue vehicles or taken through our shelter door. Donations are always welcomed from those who are able. Whether it’s an owner turn-in or a stray no animal is ever turned away. We are well aware of the tragedies that befall discarded animals on the street. We are the ones who pick up the pieces.

Obviously, your financial help is essential in providing thousands of stray, injured and unwanted animals a safe haven and a second chance for a better life.



The MACS is a four-star Charity Navigator rated 501(c)(3) animal rescue, shelter, and veterinary clinic that is funded completely by private donations. MACS never turns any animal away or charges for the shelter and rescue services we render to animals that cross our threshold if people cannot afford a donation. MACS is proud to have received a four star rating from Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is America’s premier independent charity evaluator. Click on the logo to review our four star rating.

We truly respect the privacy of our contributors. The Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society does not, under any circumstances, distribute or sell the mailing list or the names of those who make donations.
