Our Featured Pet...

Sarah is a super sweet girl waiting for a forever home with you! Sarah's owner abandoned poor Sarah at a relative's home and now she needs a new, loving family! When Sarah first came to the shelter she was scared of everything, but she has warmed up and she just loves everyone! Sarah is a little on the hefty side, but that's nothing that some good old fashioned exercise won't fix! Come in and visit with me today! />
Come by to see me today, if you'd like to get to know me!

Donate a Bed
Looking for a way to help?! Donate a Kuranda Dog or Cat bed! These incredibly comfortable beds allow the animals a place to sleep where they are up off the floor and can sleep that much sounder! If you would like to donate a bed at a special wholesale price for another dog to sleep in comfort, please donate a Kuranda dog bed.


Right now we have several cats at PetsMart that are up for adoption! If any of these cats interest you, please contact the shelter! The cats at PetsMart can also be found on petfinder.

Once a month one of our animals is featured in the "Pet of the Week" column in the Herald and Review newspaper. Look to see if the Pet of the Week could be your new best friend!

Watch for us every Friday evening on WAND TV! We have a feature called ‘Friday Friends’ on the 5 PM news. Every week you can get a taste for the dogs and cats we have available for adoption at the shelter.

Please visit for more news about the shelter and see a few of the animals that are available for adoption from the Macon County Animal Control and Care Center.

Who We Are

The Macon County Animal Control and Care Center is a municipal facility under direct supervision of the Macon County Sheriff's Department. The facility has operated under no kill guidelines for the last four years meaning only animals that are deemed sick, wild or aggressive are euthanized. Not only is the center committed to finding adoptable animals homes, they are also committed to the enforcement and prosecution of animal abuse.
