Animal Control

Welcome to the Ingham County Animal Shelter!

600 Buhl Street, Mason MI 48854

If you are looking to adopt a pet, volunteer, or help the animals with a donation, you are in the right place. We have over a hundred animals available for adoption, numerous volunteer opportunities, and many donation ideas. You can also find information on dog licenses, search for a lost pet or find out what our very own Animal Cops are doing to save lives.

For guests at the shelter: We are following Ingham County Health Departments COVID-19 precaution protocols. Visitors, volunteers, and Staff will be wearing masks in common areas. Hand sanitizer is available as well. Only visitors who are interested in adoption will be allowed to visit with animals to keep capacity in rooms to safe numbers. You will be asked to fill out an adoption pre-screening form upon your arrival to our adoption center. Thank you for your understanding as we keep the safety of the public in mind for new operations.

Ingham County Animal Control & Shelter is following Fear Free Sheltering standards. This program focuses on prioritizing animals experiences in the shelter to reduce things like stress, anxiety, and fear. Something's are obvious (reducing the sounds of loud abrupt noises) while some things are more subtle (limiting who is walking past cages). Please be patient with shelter staff as we try and make visiting and adopting from our shelter a great experience for you and your family, while protecting the animals on our care from anxiety.


We hope to resume volunteer orientations soon, please check back later for more details!
