Animal adoptions

Macomb County Animal Control hosts onsite adoptions during regular business hours. We house a wide variety of adoptable pets seeking loving forever homes.

Animals available for adoption can be viewed anytime on our Petfinder site. If you are considering adopting, it is important to meet a new pet in person. Our facility offers a special room that allows families to spend time bonding with a pet they are interested in adopting. 

Walk-in adoption are welcome Monday - Friday 10am-4pm and Saturday Events from 10am-3pm!
