Featured pet for Adoption

Adoption fee waived for these Special dogs.


These dogs are looking for homes with NO OTHER DOGS.  They would love for you to come and take a look at them.  Their adoption fees have been waived and only a dog license will be needed at the time of adoption for Cheboygan County residences.  If you do not have any other pets and are looking for a dog please come out and meet these dogs.


Diesel is a neutered male around a year old.  He is in need of some training and does not get along with dogs smaller then he is.  Diesel is looking for a home with someone who likes to run and will give him exercise. Diesel has been here since November of 2017 and would love to find his forever home.


Antonio & Carmella

Antonio is a neutered male that is around 6 months old.  He came in with Carmella and they seem to be pretty bonded to one another.  Antonio does have a birth defeat to his leg and is a little skittish at first.  He is looking for a home preferably with Carmella and would love for you to come out and take a look at him.

Carmella is a spayed female domestic short hair.  She is around 3-4 months old and is bonded with Antonio.  She is shy but friendly and loves her brother very much.  Carmella and Antonio would love for you to come out and take a look at them so they can find their forever home.

Amazon Smile Thank you


Amazon smile funding has been a wonderful resource for us at the Cheboygan County Humane Society. We have a story we would like to share with you about how your contributions have helped make the lives of the animals here at the shelter better. We would like to share Meathead’s story.  Meathead is a 4 year old English Bull dog.  He was living in a garbage can chained to a tree behind a house.  When he was found, he was emaciated, with open wounds on his ears from fly-strike and in need of extra care and love. Meathead came to the shelter where he was fed regularly and antibiotics were placed on his ears.  He began to gain weight and his ears started to heal.  As time went on he was put up for adoption where many people came out and looked at him.  Meathead loves anyone who gives him attention and immediately bonded with a gentleman, who adopted him.  He now lives a great life, he goes for walks and on adventures with his new owner and even gets to sleep in his bed.  No more garbage can for this beautiful dog!

We also would like to remind everyone that you can help by using our link at  when you shop online with amazon.

Empty the Shelter May 5th

Saturday May 5, 2018 The Cheboygan County Humane Society will be partnered with The Bissell Pet Foundation for the next Empty the Shelter event.  On May 5th at 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. only the Bissell Pet Foundation will be paying the adoption fees on all Adult dogs and all cats in the shelter to approved adopters (license fees will be charged to you for all dogs).  This is a first come first serve event and no animal will be held for anyone.  If you want a certain animal and are afraid you will miss out you are welcome to pay the adoption fee and take the animal prior to the event.  We encourage you to fill out your adoption questioner and get pre-approved for this event to help save you time or the chance of missing out.  You will need Landlord approval to all renters (both in writing and verbal), Vet reference (cannot be done the day of the event as most vets are closed) and your dogs need to be up to date on their vaccinations and licensed in the county you live in (rabies vaccination and license are required by law) to be approved for adoption.  Please fill out the questioner at and bring it into the shelter, fax it or email it to  Remember we are first come first serve and no animal will be held.
