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 at the Center or by calling our Contact Info.


 In the spring and summer, numerous litters of kitten are born in a short period of time. We like to put them into foster homes and bring them back in over a period of time so we can properly prepare them for adoption. While some volunteers end up adopting their foster pets, please note that the foster program is not for people who want to "try out" an animal prior to adoption. It is intended to provide one-on-one attention in a home environment for animals, in order to best prepare them for adoption.
