Meriden Animal Control is PROUD TO ANNOUNCE WE ARE A 100% SPAY/NEUTER FACILITY! All animals who are adopted from our facility will be spayed and neutered before they go home. This is not option, we will not allow any animals to leave or be adopted without these procedures.

WE ARE NOT THE MERIDEN HUMANE SOCIETY. WE ARE LOCATED IN THE SAME FACILITY (to the right when you enter) BUT MHS IS RESCUE. MERIDEN ANIMAL CONTROL (MAC) IS A CITY RUN POUND. We take in all lost animals, owner surrenders for Meriden residents ONLY, all stray dogs. We are an independent operation governed by the laws of the City of Meriden.

ALL "LOST/FOUND" animals must legally be turned into MAC. We advertise all animals in the paper and hold the animals for 7 days in hopes that their owner will find them. Owners missing animals call us, looking for their beloved pets. Please bring any lost animals to MAC, its the law.
