Our Mission

What We Do

We at Great Lakes Bay Animal Society believe that by mobilizing the caring power of our communities, we can reduce the number of unwanted, neglected and abused animals that are surrendered to shelters in Midland, Bay and Saginaw counties in Mid-Michigan.


Founded in February 2012, the Great Lakes Bay Animal Society is made up of animal rescue veterans who decided there was a need for a companion animal rescue and advocacy group dedicated to assisting all of the communities in the Great Lakes Bay Region. We are proud of our community and our home, so when we learned two out of three animals going into Great Lakes Bay Region county shelters are euthanized, we decided to take action. 


To achieve our mission, our all-volunteer organization:


  • Rescues adoptable animals and provides care and medical treatment to animals in transition through our Foster Program
  • Ensures these rescued companion animals are placed in loving, permanent homes
  • Promotes responsible pet ownership and the importance of spaying and neutering for controlling pet overpopulation
  • Networks with and provides a rescue service for other shelters, ultimately reducing the kill rate in the Great Lakes Bay Region

Great Lakes Bay Animal Society is dedicated to saving all unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused animals in the Great Lakes Bay Region. One by one. Hour by hour. Life by life.
