Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We accept owner-surrendered animals and strays from Otsego County and other counties on a case-by-case basis. We will adopt animals out to anyone within the United States. Adopters must sign a contract to have the animal spayed or neutered within thirty days after adoption if the animal is not spayed or neutered at the time of adoption.

About Our Shelter:

We are an animal control agency and animal shelter. We have a "no-kill of adoptable pets policy". This means that unless an animal is deemed unadoptable due to aggression and/or medical reasons, the animal will not be euthanized. Our animals are spayed or neutered prior to adoption, if for some reason they are not, an adoption agreement must be signed stating that the owner must have them altered within 30 days of the adoption (or before 6 months of age).

Come Meet our Pets:

Our shelter is open for adoptions Monday-Friday from 8AM-4:30PM and Saturday from 9AM-Noon. We are located at the end of 7th street, two blocks South of the State Police Post.

Our Adoption Process:

Adoption Fees for Dogs is $55 (if the dog is not already altered, $25 is refunded after proof of spaying or neutering is provided). This fee includes a current Michigan dog license.

Adoption Fees for Cats is $45 (if the dog is not already altered, $25 is refunded after proof of spaying or neutering is provided).

All cats and dogs are given a routine vaccine upon entering the shelter. Puppies and kittens (adults if they show symptoms) are given medication for internal parasites (worms).

If the animal being adoption is not already altered, you MUST sign a contract to have the animal altered witin 30 days of the adoption or by the time the animal turns 6 months of age.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
