Oakland Pet Adoption Center
"Our mission is to provide a temporary safe haven for animals until we find them permanent homes"
Stay up to date with Oakland's furry finest!
There are thousands of homeless animals in Oakland County, who spend days without food, shelter or water. Our shelter is utilized for those animals to be provided with vet care, love, and nutrition to match them with their forever homes. A major reason for animals being homeless is a direct result in lack of spay/neutering pets to prevent the growing problem of animal overpopulation. Licensing your pets is also a great way to ensure that they won't become homeless too if they should ever get lost.
Join us in the fight against animal overpopulation!
Spay/neuter your pet!
Our shelter currently offers low cost spay/neuter clinics to low income residents of Oakland County. The clinic provides vaccines and spay/neutering for cats, and is $20 per cat. We do not have any clinics currently scheduled at this time.
Get Your Dog License!
Having your dog licensed with Oakland County keeps them safe and protected. In order to obtain a license, your dog must be up to date on rabies vaccines. The license is our way of identifying the dog should it get lost, and being able to return them back to you! We offer 3 year licenses to those who qualify (must have a 3 year rabies vaccine that expires in 2015). Please renew or obtain your license today! You can do it online, through most local veterinarians, or come to our Shelter.
Volunteer at our Shelter!
We are always looking for new friendly faces to help out with various tasks at the shelter! If you're looking to help out, please plan to visit our volunteer page found here: http://www.oakgov.com/petadoption/Pages/Volunteers.aspx

Programs and Services we offer:
C.A.T.S. (Companion Animals Touching Seniors), offers seniors the opportunity to foster a cat. The program lasts two months, in which we provide all the necessary supplies to care for the cat. When the foster period ends, the senior has the chance to adopt the cat. The only fee they are asked to cover is $7.50 for the license. If you are interested in this program, please contact Oakland Pet Adoption Center.

CAT SPAY/NEUTER CLINIC:
The Oakland Pet Adoption Center, along with the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance, is offering spay/neuter clinics for low income Oakland County residents in our service area for healthy, social cats between the ages of 12 weeks and eight years.
Along with the sterilization, each cat receives rabies and distemper vaccinations to help prevent the spread of disease in our communities. They are also treated for ear mites, if needed, and sent home with de-worming medication.
This program, along with educating the citizens of Oakland County about responsible pet ownership, is necessary to reduce the overpopulation of kittens, which leads to crowded shelters and increased spread of disease.
To date, over 2,000 cats have been spayed/neutered!
TEACHER'S PET: Dogs and Kids Learning Together
Oakland Pet Adoption Center joins with Teacher's Pet, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to pair hard-to-adopt dogs with at-risk youth for a 10-week training session. The student trainers work with the dogs on basic obedience commands in order to make them more adoptable into permanent, loving homes while the trainers themselves mature in a kind and compassionate manner. After the 10 weeks are up, the dogs are then available for adoption.
The program works with youth from Kingsley Montgomery School in Waterford, Children's Village in Waterford, Crossroads for Youth in Oxford and Mount Clemens Juvenile Justice Center.
