Wyandotte Animal Adoption Center acts as the adoption facility for our intake facility (Downriver Central Animal Control). All strays and abandoned animals go through DCAC first for assessment, then are moved to the adoption facility once deemed adoptable and as soon as space is available. If you are looking to adopt a loving companion and can provide a stable home for a once unwanted animal, please visit our facility! We are open three weeknights a week (M, Tues, F 5:30 to 7:30) as well as every weekend. (Sat 10-2 and Sun 10-1)

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.
