    Ionia County Animal Shelter is a diamond in the rough. The staff is very loving and work very hard to make sure all the animals are comfortable and very loved. I started to volunteer at the shelter in January and my eyes were certainly opened. The majority of our help comes from Volunteers and Community Service. Even with a lack of help every animal is given the same amount of care and love. We can always use any donations from shampoo to blankets and dog and cat toys. And....if you have a free hour or so, stop buy and walk a dog or pet a cat or two. It's amazing how much of a difference an hour or two makes in the lives of our animals.

    Pros

    Loving, knowledgable staff. Everyone works hard to make this shelter a happy place.

    Cons

    We don't get much support. We need volunteers!! Anyone who can just give some love to our animals.

  • 3. much needed shelter

    by: chris52

    Ionia county animal shelter has a very caring staff and volunteers who will even go to other shelters to rescue animals. Once they even saved a horse that would have met a terrible fate after being of service to mankind for many years.\r\n The building is very old and they make do with what they have. If anyone needs or deseves a new facility its Ionia County Animal Shelter.\r\n The comunity of Ionia has been doing a "Raise the roof" campaign trying to get a better and much needed facility....dinners ,raffles,ect. \r\n People from other counties will bring animals to Ionia because they know they will do there best to place them in a home.....VERY CARING PEOPLE AND COMMUNITY!

    Pros

    good location

    Cons

    very old building
