Welcome to the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center! 

The mission of the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center is to protect public safety through the enforcement of applicable state laws, to educate the public about responsible pet ownership, and to provide a humane haven for animals in our care and, where possible, to endeavor to reunite pets with their owners and to promote responsible pet placement.  The primary beneficiaries of these services will be the citizens and animals of Oakland County.  We achieve our mission by:
  • Ensuring animals are properly licensed, vaccinated for rabies and have adequate food, water and shelter.
  • Investigating instances of animal abuse, dogs and livestock at large and animal bites and by taking appropriate enforcement actions as authorized by law.
  • Educating the public through the hosting of events and creation of written material that supports responsible pet ownership and animal and public safety.
  • Providing basic or necessary veterinarian services for animals in our care.
