The Saginaw County Animal Shelter sponsors an Animal Adoption Program to match unwanted animals to appropriate homes and responsible pet owners. Persons wishing to adopt an animal can visit the Animal Shelter kennels and choose from a wide variety of dogs and cats. See the Shelter Hours of Operations page for available adoption times.

Adopting an animal from the Saginaw County Animal Shelter is a rewarding experience! Some animals may be ready to go home with you the day of adoption and others may need to stay a few days to allow us time to get them spayed or neutered. Our skilled counselors are here to help guide you through the adoption process.

Fill out one of the following Adoption Forms. Then email the completed form, print and mail it, or bring to the Center to start the adoption process:
