New Animal Shelter in Mecosta County

Posted: Updated:

It's Northern  Michigan's newest animal shelter, but chances are you've never heard of it.

A no-kill animal shelter on 220th Avenue near Big Rapids has been open since October and wants to help you pick out the newest member of your family.

The Animal Rescue Coalition will not euthanize any of the animals they receive.

They take in dogs and cats regardless of age or breed.

If any of the animals have behavioral issues coming in, a crew makes sure to train the animals before they can be adopted.

The shelter says they've been doing very well since opening.

For more information on how you can adopt from the Animal Rescue Coalition you can go to the link posted to the left of this story.
