NOTE: If you can no longer keep your pet and must surrender him to Gratiot Animal Control please consider contacting us or another rescue in the county to see if there is assistance available to help you keep your pet.

If you have lost a dog or a cat in or around Gratiot County, VISIT the shelter to see if your pet is there. Call the shelter at (989) 875-2221immediately!. When they are closed - leave a message on their answering machine. Go to the shelter and POST a note on their door and they will contact you. It is critical that you notify Animal Control immediately if you want to get your pet returned to you! You only have days to recover your pet before it is too late! DO NOT WAIT...

The best way to have your lost pet returned to you is to put an identification tag on their collar or at least write your phone number on their collar. Ask your vet about microchipping too!

New Hours: The shelter is now open Monday 4:00pm - 6:00pm, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00 until 6:00pm and Friday 4:00pm - 6:00pm.

(Click "Other Adoptable Pets" page for animals that have been rescued or are owned but the owners can no longer keep them. It is our hope to help find forever, loving homes without having them go to the animal shelter.)
