Oceana County Animal Shelter

2185 W. Baseline Road
Shelby, MI 49455

Our Mission

If you see a pet you are interested in adopting, please call the shelter at 231-861-5395 and leave a message to be placed on that pets' adoption list.

No obligation, but it reserves your place in line on the list. After the required 4 business day hold period for the owner to find and reclaim their pet, the shelter will contact interested persons in the order they are on that pet's adoption list.

Open Monday through Saturday 8 a.m. to noon, except holidays. Call 231-861-5395.

We are a small rural, county animal control shelter in an area of 524 square miles and a population of about 28,000.

We have room for only 15 dogs and 7 cats. 

Please come see our animals ready for  adoption, and feel free to take them for a little walk. We are always looking for volunteers to help us.

Adoption Policy


DOGS/puppies: $95.00 and you receive certificates for $50 towards spay/neuter and for $10 towards rabies vaccine.

CATS/kittens: $35.00 and you receive certificates for $25 towards spay/neuter and $10 towards rabies vaccine.

The law requires that all dogs and cats adopted from a shelter in Michigan be spayed or neutered.

We are located on Baseline Road, between Hart and Shelby, about one mile east of Oceana Drive, on the south side of the road by the airport.
