RacoonsOakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center does NOT handle wildlife. We cannot mix wildlife with the domesticated animals in our facility. We handle domesticated animals only – this includes livestock, such as cows, chickens, and horses (although we do not have the facilities to board them at the shelter). All wildlife complaints or concerns should be directed to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) at (800) 292-7800.
