Saturday, October 22, 2016 the Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center will be participating in the BISSELL Pet Foundation's EMPTY THE SHELTERS event. Bissell has committed to sponsoring all the adoption fees for animals adopted that special day. The Bissell Pet Foundation is committed to saving homeless and neglected pets until every pet has a home. In May 2016 their first EMPTY THE SHELTERS event helped over 605 pets from 24 shelters across the state of Michigan find their forever home.
Please join us that special Saturday to make a difference in the life of a homeless shelter pet.
Shelter Adopts Best Practice for Housing Cats
Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center operates as an open admission shelter for cats based on available capacity since January 2, 2015. That means we will not accept cats when we do not have room to house them. After consulting with veterinary staff and other experts in animal shelter operations, we will implement the industry’s best practices. By limiting the number of cats we house, we will be able to offer the very best care to our existing cat population.
Therefore, we urge residents to call the shelter at (248) 391-4100 to determine availability for their animal before coming here. If we are at capacity and your cat is adoptable, we will place your name on a list and call you when we have room. We will also supply you with numbers to local rescue organizations that may be able to provide immediate help
(click this link to access this list). Also, click this link to access a
Rehoming Tip Sheet. The
Animal Relinquish Information form will be required for each cat brought to the shelter.
Welcome to the Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center!
The mission of the Oakland County Animal Shelter 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.
