Animal Shelter - Tuscola County

Tuscola County Animal Shelter

The Tuscola County Animal Control Shelter is dedicated to the welfare of the animals and safety of the citizens in Tuscola County. The Tuscola County Animal Shelter is located in a very rural area and consists of 16 dog kennels and 9 cat cages. We work very hard to adopt out our animals or send them to rescues across Michigan, but unfortunately not all animals can be placed. Those who cannot be placed are humanely euthanized due to aggression issues that will effect the safety of the public or those who are ill and cannot be treated.
