Our mission statement is "To promote animal welfare through education, enforcement, housing, and adoptions." As a department, we strive to achieve compliance with state law and local ordinance.
Who We Are
This shelter is a county organization which operates 100% on revenues raised at the shelter. This revenue comes from many sources, including licensing fees, adoption fees, return to owner fees, and fines levied in court for ordinance violations. Our shelter investigates animal complaints, cruelty complaints, and general nuisance complaints. Other services include impoundment of stray animals, adoptions and and public education through school talks and community seminars.
Adopting a friend
We have some great animals up for adoption. These animals include dogs, cats, ferrets, and livestock.
There is a cost to adopt the animals.
These costs are as follows if the animal is not altered:
Dogs are $100 which includes a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit. Puppies are $110 which includes a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit. Cats/kittens are $70 which includes a $50 refundable spay/neuter deposit.
If the animals are already already altered:
Dogs are $50. Puppies are $60. Cats/Kittens are $20.
Michigan Law requires a spay/neutering deposit on all animals sold from the shelter. This a $50.00 fee, refundable upon having the animal sexually altered by a licensed veterinarian.
For information on fees for other animals, please contact the shelter.
