Adoption fees are now removed to make room for new pets that need care.
All cats and dogs are fully vaccinated, sterilized and microchipped.
Animal control officials say they have enough room for 84 adult dogs, but they have exceeded that number due to a sharp increase in the number of stray dogs.
The director of the shelter says there are opportunities for pet adoption and foster care programs for those looking to bring home an angry new friend.
âIf anyone is interested in adopting, they can go online, view our pets on pet finder, contact the shelter or visit,â said Mark Kumpf of Detroit Animal Care And Control. âEven with the pandemic restrictions that are being lifted, we still have a lot of wonderful animals here and the staff will be happy to try and match people with an animal that fits their lifestyle or what interests them. “
Detroit Animal Care and Control is located on Chrysler Service Drive near the corner of East Grand Boulevard.
