New 24/7 camera allows pet lovers to meet adoptable felines online
Macomb County officials have launched a new EarthCam that will document kittens and cats housed at its animal control facility in Clinton Township. The camera will provide a 24/7 video feed for members of the public interested in watching the animals, which are all available for adoption. The feed is accessible here: http://www.macombgov.org/kittens
"Macomb County is the first in the state of Michigan to offer the world a view into the daily life of a shelter cat," said Jeff Randazzo, chief of Macomb County Animal Control. "The live webcam overlooks the cat adoption area at Macomb County Animal Control. This live cam is not only for viewing enjoyment, but it is also intended to help promote the adoption of our shelter pets. Interested individuals can tune in to see what fun antics our feline friends are up to."
The mission of Macomb County Animal Control is to support the health and safety of residents, to protect animals and promote their humane treatment. The department is responsible for licensing, animal-related investigations, stray/quarantine/court holds, SNR and animal adoptions. It has also adopted a no-kill philosophy and animal control staff make every effort to promote pet adoptions of healthy, non-aggressive animals by the general public and approved animal rescue organizations. Pets available for adoption are completely vetted, including spay/neuter, vaccines, prevention and microchipping. Animals available for adoption are posted in the following locations:
