We are at maximum capacity!
Please, please, consider adopting one of our pets! We are not set up to have foster homes, so our poor dogs and cats really need to get into homes as soon as possible. You could be saving a life!
Long Distance Adoptions! As a rural shelter, our entire county only has a population of 49,000 people. We seem to have way more homeless animals than adoptive families. WE WELCOME LONG DISTANCE ADOPTIONS! Recently, Max, a totally blind Cocker Spaniel and another dog named Bear were adopted by a folks from Chicago. And, Husky Cyber was adopted by a family in Wisconsin. Congrats to Max, Bear and Cyber! And, then there is Flash...
One of our "turn-around" dogs, Flash, was adopted by a family in Michigan! Border Collie Flash had been abused and arrived at our shelter fearful and leery of people. But, with the help of our dedicated staff and volunteers, he "turned around" and became one of our favorites. Flash is now named "Cash" and is enjoying life in northern Michigan where he is the star of his obedience class! More great pets like him are waiting for you at our shelter!

8 to Adopt from MCACAC!
1. Support your community! Adopting here makes room for other local animals who need help.
2. Show your family and friends that pets adopted locally make awesome pets.
3. We are self-supporting and need your support! While a small emergency fund is available from the county, our entire operating budget is provided by people like you.
4. Looking for a purebreed pet? We often have many to choose from! But, don’t forget those cute and loveable mutts!
5. The adoption fee of $100 for Dogs and $75 for cats is a bargain—one of the cheapest around! It includes all shots and spays/ neuters.
6. If you and your pet are not a perfect match, you can return your pet for a refund or exchange within 7 days.
7. Possibly save a life. The state encourages euthanasia, but the caring staff MCACAC strives to find homes for as many pets as possible.
8. Very few “animal control” facilities take a humane society approach. MCACAC proves that this type of approach can work. By supporting us, you are supporting our cause.
