About Us

Adopting A Friend

Adopting and Fostering:

Welcome to the Allegan County Animal Shelter's Petfinder page. We have cats, dogs, kittens and puppies! From purebreds to mixed breeds, they are all wonderful animals and all deserve loving, FOREVER homes! 

In case you are planning a visit, please keep in mind that NOT ALL animals listed on our Petfinder page are at the shelter. Some of our animals are in foster homes. If you are interested in a particular cat or dog, please call first before you come so you know if the animal is here.

Fees and Applications:

To learn more about adopting and/or fostering from the Allegan County Animal Shelter, including applications and fees, please visit our website at www.wishbonepetrescue.org


Unfortunately, animals wander off every day and find their way here as strays. We strive to have them returned to their owners by updating Petfinder as often as possible. If you live in Allegan County and suspect your pet is here and you do not see the pet on our Petfinder list, then please call us as soon as possible or visit during our regular business hours. Also, we try to list our strays on Facebook Strays Page: http://www.facebook.com/allegancountystrays.
