Animal Shelter

ATTENTION Adopters, Rescues & Shelters: If there is a specific dog(s) that you are interested in, call the Shelter during open hours to sign up.

Per State Law stray dogs are held at the Shelter for four (4) Business Days to give the owner a chance to reclaim them. The “Release Date” is the date the dog is available for Adoption, Rescue or Transfer. If for medical and/or behavioral reasons the dog is not adoptable, it will be marked “Pick Up By Owner Only”. If you have any questions, please call the Shelter during open hours at 517-639-3210.
