Eva Burrell Animal Shelter

Our mission The Eva Burrell Animal Shelter (EBAS) believes that it has the ability and power to effect change one animal at a time. It is our goal to be worthy of their lives, to be enriched by their presence and not to miss the lessons they teach. We pledge to educate, to lead by example, to learn, to help when and where we can, to be diligent in our fundraising, and to be worthy of the trust placed in us. We serve the residents and animals of Schoolcraft County, MI, and we network to help animals in need by transfers and outreach.

Ways to help

Animal Care

Cuddling and playing with the cats and kittens. Walking dogs (each of our dogs get walked 5 or 6 days a week). Working in the dog yard – playing with the dogs, feeding them, and maybe even helping the kennel manager train them. Coming in a couple hours in the afternoons on Saturday, Sunday or Monday to take care of the cats and dogs when we’re closed. Coming in the evening to let the dogs out and tuck everyone in for the night. We ask that Animal Care volunteers commit to one shift on one day a week, whichever one works best for you.

How you help Our shelter relies on volunteers for the daily care and feeding of the cats and dogs that count on us, and for staffing our fundraising efforts. We’re always looking for more dedicated, caring people to help out. No matter how much time you have, there is an opportunity!
About us We operate on a donation basis, with the County Board, City Council, and some Townships contributing a small portion each year towards the operating expenses of the animal shelter. Fundraisers are continual each year, with some favorites being done repeatedly. We have a small paid part-time staff and all other work is done by volunteers - all are worth their weight in gold plus! Our shelter is named for the lady who operated our county's first animal shelter in her home for 19 years. The new shelter building was opened in 1999, built by volunteers with donated material. We welcome volunteers, both young and old. We always need 'walkers' for exercising the dogs, and laps for kitties to sit and nap on. And we always need donations, be it in money, food, kitty litter, treats, bedding, etc.... If unsure, please contact the Shelter.
