The Wyandotte Animal Control allows a small group of volunteers to evaluate the temperament of animals that are impounded at the shelter. These volunteers also photograph and post the information on the animals on this site. We strive to keep euthanasia rates low and place as many adoptable animals as possible.
The Wyandotte Animal Shelter works closely with non-profit and rescue groups to implement a spay/neuter program and successful adoptions. It has a core group of volunteers from the rescue group, P.A.W.S. of Michigan, who assist the animal control officer in the care and adoption of the animals. Within this group there are several committees who handle certain activities such as volunteering, cleaning the shelter on a daily basis, grooming, caring for the cats and dogs, the adoption process, reviewing the many adoption applications for approval and various fundraising events. There are currently over 60 dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
If you are considering adopting an animal please stop by to check out the wonderful companions we have available. We have extended hours during the weekdays as well as weekend hours posted below.

From an email that we were written:
This is Molly Rose. She adopted us approximately a year and a half ago at the Wyandotte Animal Shelter. She is a senior border collie who really didn't understand why she was in the shelter (we didn't understand that either). She sure has spoiled us with showers of attention and love and in return we have done our best to spoil her back. When she first became a family member, she wasn't used to affection but has learned to express herself through kisses and some of the most endearing facial expressions. We find it very hard to say no to her, which is why she sleeps in the middle of a king size bed with her human mom and dad. Her days consist of sleeping on the couch or love seat with her feline senior brother. They play a little together and then it's nap time. Sometimes both of them curl up together in front of the fireplace. She really enjoys walks in the neighborhood to see what's happening. Since everyone in our family has middle names, we gave Molly the middle name of Rose - she seems to like it! Our family would not be complete without Molly and we are very grateful to the Wyandotte Animal Shelter for the opportunity to have Molly in our lives!!
