Find the Right Match
Puppies and kittens are adorable but when looking for your new "best friend" and family member, consider you & your family's lifestyle, energy level and available time to spend with the new addition. Puppies are fun and energetic but require constant attention and training to grow into well behaved pets.
If you have a busy lifestyle consider adopting an older pet. Most older dogs have had some training and are usually housebroken. They have been socialized and will adjust easily to a new home and family.
Whether you are looking to adopt an adorable puppy or a more mature dog, make sure you consider all of the issues. Adopting a pet should be for a lifetime.
--IMPORTANT-- Spay & neuter your pets. Pet overpopulation is an extreme problem, the largest contributing factor to the high euthanasia rate of healthy animals in our county. You can help stop the overpopulation of unwanted animals by spaying/neutering your pets.
All animals adopted out of our animal shelter are required to be spayed or neutered. You will have to sign a contract and will be given a date by which the animal is to be altered. The spay/neuter deposit will be refunded by mail when proof is provided that alteration has been done by the date given. Our Hours are: Monday 4:00pm-6:00pm, Tuesday through Thursday from 10:00am until 6:00pm, Friday 4:00pm-6:00pm
Please call the shelter during open hours (989)875-2221 if you are interested in an animal or if you have lost your pet.
