Give a Wag! Gives to Holland Shelters

Holland, Michigan is celebrated for its charming downtown and sandy white beaches along the shores of Lake Michigan. For animals in need of humane care and placement into homes in Holland and the surrounding county of Ottawa, the Harbor Humane Society provides a range of services. 

The Harbor Humane Society was founded in 1956 as Ottawa Shores Humane Society. Harbor Humane Society’s mission is "to provide a safe harbor for animals entrusted to our care as we strive to secure their future through out outreach and educational programs".  

This non-profit organization has a successful 100% placement rate for the animals who pass through their program. In 2016, they took in 549 stray dogs, 80 dogs from owner surrender, 32 transferred animals, and 56 other intakes. Of these homeless hounds, 336 found fur-ever homes, 280 were reunited with their owners, 21 were transferred and there were 61 euthanized. The only animals who are euthanized are those who are gravely ill or of such aggressive temperament they cannot be placed in homes. 

The Harbor Humane Society offers a spay and neuter clinic. They provide a range of educational opportunities to teach about animal care and management. The program relies heavily on volunteers, who receive orientation and specialized training to work with the animals. Happy hounds in this harbor area of Ottawa County ought-ta-wag-a tail of happiness for the love and care they can find through this organization.
