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 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
ADOPTION FEE: $150
The adoption fee includes spay/neuter, a vet check, heartworm test, and vaccinations including rabies and distemper.

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.
