All of Our Adoptable Pets!

ALL Adopted Pet Happy Tails!

Our pets eat Hills Science Diet pet food exclusively...they love it and thrive on it!! Check out the Hills pet food recommended for your current (or NEW!) pet at Hills Pet Food

Our adoption animal pictures/status are updated ASAP......so if you see a pet on Petfinder.com, come on down to the shelter. If you see one of our pets on Channel 4 at 6:45am Fridays and you want to adopt it, be the first in line when adoption hours start at 10:30am (see schedule below) We adopt on a First Come-First Served Basis and cannot hold animals...so you can call or email us for more information, but it is best to come in person. Remember, there is always a pet in need of your love here!

An "older" (6 months or so) puppy or dog will already be the size he will be at adulthood and there will be no guessing if he is the "right size" for your home!! They love to show you how cute they are and they can only do that when you come to the shelter.......we want their pictures to make you want to see them in person....we think it is worth the drive!

You can view our adoptable pets on Our pet list!

NEWS


The Adoption Program at the Detroit Animal Control Center rescues dogs and cats that were either abandoned or given up by their owners or found as strays. We observe our adoption animals' behavior during their stay at the center to assure their suitability as a pet. Sad thing is, because of the number of animals running loose in the city, our adoption program is never without a pet needing a owner's love and care. Please, keep coming back to this page. We may just have the pet you've been searching for.


DOG & CAT RESCUE GROUPS: ALL RESCUE GROUPS ARE WELCOME AND CAN ASSIST IN GETTING MORE HOMES FOR PETS!!! PLEASE CONTACT PATRICE REED, CITY OF DETROIT ANIMAL CONTROL SHELTER ADOPTION VET TECH, AT 313-224-6323 (Monday-Friday)(OR SEND HER A NOTE @HERE PLEASE LET HER KNOW YOU ARE WITH A RESCUE GROUP AND A PHONE NUMBER CONTACT, PLEASE) FOR AVAILABLE ANIMALS (many are not on Petfinder for public viewing) AND HOW YOU CAN HELP.

We are happy to say a lot of the Rescues have been calling and coming in!!! Not only do we thank you for continuing our goal to adopt more animals....but the animals thank you with a big kitty or doggie kiss.
