Donations are essential to the success of the Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center. They are used to provide animals with the proper medical attention and everyday needs.
Donations can be made by stopping by the Center, located at 1200 N Telegraph Rd Bldg. 42E in Pontiac or call 248-858-1070. For more information please
Our center relies on donations to help our furry friends. One of our biggest needs is dog and cat food. Our food bills are nearly $22k every year! We feed any good quality DRY food for dogs and cats. We also use canned food, specifically for special needs animals for puppies & kittens.
We also use regular cat litter. Clumping litter is NOT used in shelter environments as the litter has to be totally discarded every couple of days, so it is not cost efficient.
We accept towels, blankets, wash cloths, carpeting and sheets. If a pet won’t eat or destroy a blanket or towel, they will get one to lie on.
Our Wish List: We are always in need of the following items:
Towels and blankets
Canned cat food
Cat litter and pans
Bound carpet samples
Leashes and collars
We do accept monetary donations. There is a special fund set up for our shelter so we may use the funds for medical needs for a pet or for improvements to the shelter.
A new service is now available at the Oakland County Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center. You can now donate online!
