We are super excited to see you at this years Open House and all the positive response we have received. We’re not afraid of a little rain, however, thunder and lightning are predicted tomorrow, which is another story. Safety is our main concern for everyone and all our four-legged friends. Due to this, we will be rescheduling our Open House to Saturday, October 21st. from 11 am – 2 pm. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused, but we hope to see you next weekend. Fingers crossed the sun will be shining.

See the movie ‘MAX’ to help our Dogs!


For one night, dogs will take over Celebration Cinema North with a special movie event and a red carpet reception to showcase the impact of several local canine efforts.

Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary, of Lake Odessa, MI, is excited to announce a community event in which the public is invited to attend the premier of Warner Brother’s new release of the film, Max. The movie is a story of a Marine canine who has been traumatized with the loss of his handler/owner, is retrained to become a family pet, and helps in a search and rescue.

The evening event includes several canine experiences. On Friday, June 26, between the hours of 5:00 – 8:00 pm:

  • Come and meet Allegan Sheriff Deputy, Ben Haas and his canine partner Medo, who found the lost two year-old boy earlier this month. Grand Rapid’s K9 unit will also be on-site.
  • Meet and learn more about Michigan Search and Rescue, both human and canine members will be on hand.
  • Hold cute and adorable shepherd puppies.
  • Find out more about adoptable dogs from Mackenzie’s Animal Sanctuary. Care, compassion, training, and giving abandoned dogs another chance at finding another home is the work of this organization who makes a commitment to each dog for the rest of its life.

At 7:00 pm, a special screening of the Max movie will be held. Movie goers will be able to purchase an entire movie going experience – the Max movie, pop and popcorn, and a donation to Mackenzie’s to help local dogs become someone’s best friend.

Tickets may be purchased online.
