The Sanilac County Animal Control Shelter is dedicated to the welfare of the animals in Sanilac County. The Sanilac County Animal Control & Shelter is a governmental agency and is funded with tax dollars. Many tasks of our animal control is, but not limited to....1. Investigating animal cruelty.
Please note that many of our pets have come in as strays, so we do not know any backround or history on them. If you are interested in adopting a pet on our site, please email us ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for an adoption application. The adoption application is required before you can adopt a pet. This is for you and your family’s benefit and our pets’ benefit. The application tells us about the applicant and helps guide us in placing the correct animal in the right forever home. Once a COMPLETED application is received, a representative of SCACS will review your application. Incomplete applications will not be considered. SCACS reserves the right to refuse an application. By filling out an application, you are not obligated to adopt an animal from us and you are not guaranteed one of ours. Please also be aware that it normally takes anywhere from 1-10 days to process an application.
Dogs & Puppies are $60.00. Cats & Kittens are $50.00. All adopted pets must be spayed or neutered within 30 days of adoption by law. Once altered you are refunded $30.00.
PLEASE SPAY & NEUTER ALL OF YOUR PETS!
Millions of pets (even purebreds!) die each year because of the countless number of animals brought into shelters everyday. There's just not enough homes to go around for everyone.
OBEDIENCE TRAINING IS A MUST FOR ANY DOG. Both the owner and dog will live a happier life. Training also helps in case of accidents when your dog may get loose. Basically and most importantly, proper training can prevent a lot of mishaps with your animals.
Donations are greatly appreciated. Suggested items are as follows:
|We have chosen Kuranda dog beds for our boarding facilities because they are so good for our dogs. We still don't have enough for all of our kennels. If you would like to donate a bed so another dog can sleep in proper comfort, please click here.|
Adoption, Viewing, and Drop Off hours are:
Monday - Friday from 9am-10am & 2:00pm - 4:00pm
We are short staffed and very busy at times. We try to be here at those times mentioned above, but sometimes it is impossible to be here during those hours due to overwhelming complaints and emergencies. So, please understand and be patient with us if we are not here. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
The shelter is located in Sandusky, just East of Yager Auto Parts on the South side of the road (E. Sanilac St.), directly behind the DPW Garages. The shelter is a small yellow brick building.
