Last year the Humane Society of West Michigan had a total of 3,038 animals adopted into loving homes where they can spend the rest of their lives in happiness and comfort. Many people could not imagine living without their furry companions, and the recently opened 616 Lofts, located at 740 Michigan Ave. NE, is happy to announce that it will be a pet-friendly community.


Come join 616 Lofts, in collaboration with Hello West Michigan and the Humane Society of West Michigan, on February 4th to celebrate the pets you can’t live without! The mixer will run from 5-7pm at 616 Lofts.

The collaboration of the two groups has both directors very excited about what each organization can bring to the table for the community and for each other. Humane Society of West Michigan Executive Director, Tammy Hagedorn, said in a press release, “It is our vision to build a more compassionate community where all animals are given the care they deserve. We are thrilled to partner with 616 Lofts, who shares in this vision by offering pet friendly homes in Grand Rapids.”


Likewise, 616 Director of Development, Monica Steimle shared nothing but kind words and excitement about animals in the community and the collaboration between 616 Lofts and the HSWM.


“We believe pets are family and welcome our resident’s furry companions at all of our 616 communities,” said Monica Steimle. “We wanted to partner with the Humane Society of West Michigan for this event to encourage pet adoption and assist residents in possibly finding their new best friend.”


The Humane Society of West Michigan (HSWM) will provide animals available for snuggling and for on-site adoption at the event. 616 Lofts will waive their pet fee to any residents who adopt an animal from HSWM.
