Pets in our Shelter
" Animals coming into the Animal Control shelter, for the most part, are stray or abandoned. There is little or no known information about these animals. Stray/abandoned animals are normally held seven to ten days at the shelter waiting for their owner to claim them, after which time they may become available for adoption.
If you see your pet on this web page, or see one you may be interested in adopting, please contact the shelter at 517-543-5755 ext 1, during regular business hours. While we make every effort to post pictures as soon as possible, there may be animals in the shelter that are not yet posted. If you are missing a pet that is not shown below please call or stop into the shelter.
(First Offense) $20.00
$5.00 for the first day and $4.00 for each additional day

DOG LICENSING INFORMATION
Licensing Requirements: All citizens in the state of Michigan are required to license their dogs four months or older. A current rabies vaccination certificate from a licensed Michigan Veterinarian is required in order to license dogs. There is no reciprocity for out of state dog licenses, however, dog licenses from other Michigan counties are recognized. We begin selling licenses for the upcoming year on December 1st, and the deadline for a dog license purchase is May 31st. Licenses are only valid for the calendar year (January 1st - Decemeber 31st) and must be renewed annually.

!!Treasurer Announces 2017 Doggy Photo Contest!!
The Eaton County Treasurer’s 2017 Doggy Photo Contest also began on December 1. First, second, and third place winners will be chosen by the community at large based on the number of votes or “likes” each photo receives on the treasurer’s Facebook page. Pet photos will be on public display at the Eaton County treasurer’s office in Charlotte, published in a future issue of The County Journal, and posted on the treasurer’s Facebook page. Complete contest rules and regulations are available at the treasurer’s website. Pets must have a valid Eaton County dog license to enter.
“This has become a fun annual event,” said County Treasurer, Bob Robinson. “It’s fun for dog owners and a great way to remind folks about the convenience of our online dog licensing system. Most importantly, we’ll all find out who owns the cutest dog in the county for 2017.
I’d like to thank The County Journal for their kind sponsorship and participation in the contest,” he added.
