Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Sault Ste. Marie in beautiful Chippewa County by the Canadian Border.

About Our Shelter:

The Chippewa County Animal Control Shelter is a county managed animal shelter. The shelter is maintained by one full-time and two part-time dedicated shelter attendants who, first and foremost, put the health and care of the dogs, puppies, cats and kittens as their primary concern. Although no public animal shelter finds it easy to maintain a no kill policy, we are VERY PROUD that we adhere to strict directives where euthanasia is concerned. Very stringent protocol has been adopted where loss of animal life is considered.

Come Meet our Pets:

The CCACS is always in need of volunteers to socialize our pets while they wait for a new home. Walking dogs, brushing cats, playing with kittens and puppies...you pick what you would like to do and let us know! Our volunteer base is recognized as an important 'beat' in the heart of our shelter days. Please contact the animal shelter at 906.632.2519 for more information. Better yet, drop by the shelter and pick up an application. NO TASK IS TOO SMALL. OUR ANIMALS WOULD LOVE TO MEET YOU! You must be at least 14 years of age to volunteer. We are open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Our Adoption Process:

Any pet adopted from the Chippewa County Animal Shelter must be spayed or neutered, either before or after adoption.
Adoption Fees:

If an animal is older than 12 weeks and has already been spayed or neutered, the adoption fee is $60.00 for dogs and $25.00 for cats.

For kittens less than 12 weeks of age, the adoption fee is $50.00 and includes a free spay or neuter certificate for local residents. For Puppies less than 12 weeks of age, the adoption fee is $75.00 and includes a free spay or neuter certificate for local residents.

If an animal is older than 12 weeks but has not yet been spayed or neutered, there is no adoption fee. However, the adopter is required to pay a deposit of $25.00, of which $10.00 will be refunded upon written certification from a veterinarian that the surgery has been completed.

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.
