The Tuscola County Animal Shelter is located in a very rural area and only consists of 12 dog kennels and 7 cat cages. Although we try very hard, not all of our animals are placed and unfortunately have to be humanely euthanized due to limited space and funding. One full time animal control officer and one kennel attendent are employed at Tuscola County Animal Control.
About Our Shelter:We are dedicated individuals who work to make the world a safe place for animals. Our goal is that one day, no adoptable pet will be euthanized, and that all pets will have loving homes. We encourage everyone to spay and neuter their pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets.
