DETROIT (WJBK) - The newly-opened Michigan Humane Society in Detroit is ready to get animals the help they need and a healthy home. The Detroit Animal Care Campus brought to you by the MSH opened just down the road from its old facility at noon on Monday.
"We had been in our old building since th '30s. It was an old piston factory that was converted into an animal shelter. So, if anyone has ever been down there, you've seen the way it looks but you know the hard work and the great job we've been able to do for the animals there and this just represents a new day," says Ryan McTigue.
The new 35,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is good for the animals, and the animal lovers.
The Humane Sciety has offices in Westland, Rochester Hills, Sterling Heights and its newest one in Detroit. The animals there will always be taken care of until it's time to be adopted, but it's best for them to get a home sooner than later.
"If you're in the market, we've got dogs, cats, kittens, puppies," says McTigue. "Even if you're not necessarily looking to adopt we encourage anyone to come out and check out our new facility and just kind of see how bright and airy, and how much happier all the animals can be in a situation like this."
A fully-operational veterinary clinic is also in the new facility.
If you're interested in adopting any of the animals, the new facility is open 12-5 p.m. Mondays - Saturdays. It is located at 7887 Chrysler Drive.
