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.

FEATURED PET OF THE WEEK:
Chance
Chance has quickly become a favorite of the kennel staff.  Who can resist that adorable brindle patch over his eye? He's not only a handsome guy, but he's got a wonderful personality to top it off! He's quiet and mellow in his pen, but loves to get outside and explore. He also enjoys as much affection as you're willing to give him! Chance is approximately 2 years old.
Chance has been neutered, heartworm tested, and is up to date on vaccinations.
Come in and meet Chance today. Don't forget to ask about his special adoption rate!
