Michigan Humane Society Detroit Animal Care CampusDetroit, MI

Sachse Construction was hired to oversee the construction of The new Michigan Humane Society (MHS) Detroit Animal Care Campus in Detroit, MI. The new 28,000 square foot structure features a state-of-the-art animal treatment facility along with adoption space and administration offices. This new space will increase the organization’s collective impact on animal care, treatment and well-being for years to come.

The new building appropriately houses animals with both short and long term care needs.  It allows the Michigan Humane Society to modernize and meet industry best practices such as open and inviting living spaces that better meet the social, physical and mental needs of animals.  This facility also encompasses disease resistant materials for improved sanitation and animal health.
