The pet adoption center has plenty of cats, kittens, dogs, and puppies who are looking for their forever home. Those interested in adopting a pet or learning more about available pets are invited to schedule an appointment by calling 248-858-1070. The center takes appointments Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
All adopted animals will be spayed or neutered, heartworm or feline leukemia tested, microchipped, and given age appropriate vaccinations prior to leaving the shelter. You must be over 18 years old to adopt an animal from the shelter and a valid ID is required. All fees must be paid in full before an animal can leave the shelter. If you rent your living space, approval from a landlord is required.
Your furry friend needs a license, and now is the time to purchase or renew one for them. Michigan law requires all dogs four months of age and older to have a current dog license. Both one-year and three-year licenses are available for renewal or purchase at the Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center.
