February is Responsible Pet Owners Month, and with Oakland County’s new Pet Resources Map, taking care of your critters is simpler than ever.
Shelters / Rescues
If you’re still looking for a new addition to the family, visit Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center or any of the other 56 shelters and rescues located in Oakland County. Each is filled with loving animals looking for equally loving homes. With so many animals and locations out there, your future pet could be waiting just around the block.
Proper care for any pet starts with the right gear. Whether it’s food, crates, tanks, or toys, the proper supplies will help keep your pet happy and healthy. Our Pet Resources Map can guide you to any of the 58 pet supply retailers in Oakland County.
Responsible pet owners know the value that medical care brings to the animals they love. Having your animal spayed or neutered lowers their risk of developing cancer and other deadly diseases. It’s also vital to take your pets to annual check-ups even if they seem healthy. Catching disease early and preventing severe illness spares both money and anguish further down the road. If you’re searching for veterinarian services, take a look at the 161 pet medical facilities on the Oakland County Pet Resources map.
Even the most responsible pet owners sometimes need help with the care of their animal friends. Luckily for those in Oakland County, there is a wide variety of pet care service offerings. Here is a breakdown of the 472 (yes, 472!) animal service providers in Oakland County:
- Boarding and Day Care Facilities: 131
- Dog License Tag Facilities: 65
- Funeral Services: 3
- Groomers: 159
- Pet Sitters: 37

While being a responsible pet owner may sound like a lot of work, sometimes it’s a walk in the park. Dog parks offer exercise and fresh air to pups and owners alike. Let our Pet Resources Map direct you to one of the seven dog parks in Oakland County.
