Now in its new, centrally-located facility on the Oakland County Government Campus, it’s easier than ever to stop in and adopt a new furry family member. Several dogs and cats are waiting for “furever” homes. You can view pets before you go by using their Petfinder page. The friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready and waiting to answer questions and share tools for responsible pet ownership. If you’re not yet ready to adopt, become a volunteer and help walk dogs, comfort cats, and more. The Pet Adoption Center is open Monday – Friday, 10 am – 5 pm, and on Saturdays, 10 am – 4 pm.
Join shelter chief Joanie Toole on a virtual tour to see what has these animals wagging their tails:
With Oakland County’s new Pet Resources Map, taking care of your critters is simpler than ever.
As temperatures peak in the summer months, we are all at risk – including our pets. Did you know the temperature inside your vehicle can rise above 120 degrees in a matter of minutes? That’s even with the windows partially open. In just 15 minutes, your dog can suffer brain damage, heat stroke, suffocation or death.
Take a look at Oakland County Animal Shelter’s video to learn more.
If you see an animal locked inside a vehicle, we urge you to call your local police department or the Oakland County Animal Shelter immediately at 248-858-1090!
