City and County Shelter List - MI
City and County Shelter List - Michigan:

Public shelters are tax-payer funded and owned by the people for the people. Michigan has 83 counties.

Animals at city and county shelters are only required by law to be held for 4 days (stray with no collar or id) or 7 days (with collar or micro-chip).  Owner surrendered animals can be immediately euthanized upon entry.

Some animal control facilities discriminate against certain breeds of dogs, i.e. euthanize all adults and puppies of that breed (for example, American, bull, or Staffordshire terriers, including mixes that may "appear" similar), regardless of temperament.


Some public-owned shelters in Michigan still "sell" lost or homeless pets to experimental research labs (aka: class B dealers - noted in red next to those who continue this  controversial and questionable practice).  Some public owned shelters still use  the primitive gas chamber (carbon monoxide or carbon dioxide) to cause the death of animals verses humane lethal injection (noted next to those who choose to continue this unnecessary practice). 

A must read for Michigan citizens, How Shelter Pets are Brokered for Experimentation, by Michigan native Allie Phillips

Public owned shelters that do not allow volunteers from the community usually cannot stand the "light of day" and are considered high kill.  Public owned shelters that do not post pets  for adoption on Petfinder.com (and keep postings current and up-to-date) are also considered high kill.
