Mission Statement

Responsible for animal welfare, and the care of stray and surrendered companion Animals in Livingston County Michigan.

Our goal is to find homes for every adoptable animal that enters our facility. We also offer low income spay/neuter clinics.


This is a county facility funded by tax dollars. It is responsible for animal control and sheltering of stray dogs and cats. Strays are held for 7 days and then put up for adoption. We try not to euthanize due to space, but we are limited by size. So please, adopt a pet and spay or neuter your pets!

Would you recommend Livingston County Animal Shelter?

A fabulous shelter with a caring staff - I cannot recommend this place any higher! I adopted a dog from here in November 2010 and it has been amazing to see the changes implemented by the new Director. She welcomes volunteer help on a variety of tasks and working at the shelter makes you feel like you a contributing to a very good cause. Beware, you may end up adopting a dog or cat if you volunteer here. Livingston County Animal Shelter has wonderful animals!

Under the Leadership of Ms. Oberle this shelter has went through a complete transformation. All that is desperately needed at this point is: 1. More people coming in to adopt. 2. VOLUNTEERS. 3. LARGER facility. Did I mention they need VOLUNTEERS!? This place rocks to volunteer at!!!! Please come and check it out!

Livingston County Animal Control (LCAC) has undergone a transformation within the past year due to a push by concerned citizens to make changes, which eventually resulted in a change in the Director. The new director (Deb) has implemented many much needed and long-awaited programs, including a volunteer program, spay/neuter and micro chip clinics. This shelter has a fresh, new attitude: adoptions are being promoted, volunteers are assisting in ways they could not before, and euthanizations are kept to a minimum for healthy, adoptable animals. There is still a need for assistance at this shelter to help the many homeless animals. Dogs need to be walked, cats need to be groomed, and both need to be socialized. We help out whenever we can, but given that we are a fair distance away, volunteers who live closer would benefit this shelter.

The new director has a very humane approach to animal welfare;she is open to new ideas, volunteer efforts and any reasonable attempt to save/place animals out of the facility. It is crucial that people who live in the community support this effort, for the sake of their homeless animal population.
