Who We Are

The City of Madison Heights Animal Shelter is a municipal facility run by the City's Animal Control Officer, Suzette Gysel. The animals that come into the shelter are either strays, abandoned, seized from owners for improper care, or surrendered by the owner. It is a NO KILL shelter that works hard to find the animals new forever homes.

Non-profit 501(c)(3) are welcome to pull animals from the shelter. Only requirement is to provide copy of 501(c)(3) certificate and a copy of your adoption contract. WE DO NOT CHARGE A PULL FEE.

It all began with Hero, the Chow Chow with a broken leg. With donations from generous people like you we were able to provide Hero and many other special needs animals with the emergency medical care they needed. Tax free donation can be made by check and mailed to :

The City of Madison Heights Animal Control officer and the volunteers at the shelter would like to thank Guardians for Animals for all of their help and support in caring for the animals at the shelter. GFA has provided generous financial support to save the life of Cricket (6 month old chihuahua mix who came in with a broken leg), Hero (came in with a broken leg), Monte (needed emergency abdomen surgery), and many more. GFA also helps in providing funds to give the animals shots, spays and neuters, food and litter. Without this organization, none of this would be possible. Learn more at Guardians for Animals
