The Animal Control division's services include pet adoptions, lost and found for pets, animal cruelty investigations, dog licensing, animal bite reports, and rescue services for domestic animals and injured or sick wildlife.



'Tis the Season for Giving!

The holidays are more than trees, tinsel, and presents. As Dr. Seuss’ Grinch realized, “What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps … means a little bit more?” We all know that the holidays are about giving. They are about peace on Earth and goodwill to men. But shouldn’t the holiday spirit extend to all creatures great and small?

There are many ways you and your family can contribute in this season of giving. Whether you donate money, food, supplies, or your time, you are making a difference in the lives of animals. No contribution is too small. Just think of the impact we can make if everyone took to the spirit of giving this holiday season.

Macomb County Animal Control On Patrol #9


Macomb County Animal Control On Patrol

Macomb County Animal Control has partnered with Shelby TV to create "Macomb County Animal Control On Patrol".  The show runs on your local cable access station as well as online at this link.  "On Patrol" is full of real footage of our officers and staff as they work to help the animals and citizens of Macomb County.   We hope you will follow us as we investigate animal cruelty, conduct community outreach, save animals in our care and much more!
