Thank you for your interest in the Michigan Animal Rescue League! Several changes have been made to our operations in response to COVID-19:

Currently, all adoptions, animal visits, and animal intakes are by appointment only. This means that we are not allowing walk-in visits at this time.

All of our adoptable cats and dogs can be viewed on our website. If you are interested in pursing an adoption, you must first submit an adoption application on our website. Once your application has been received, a member of our team will contact you within five business days with additional questions, to schedule an appointment, or to notify you of any changes to the animal’s availability.

All animal intakes are by appointment only at this time. If you have an animal to surrender, please call our office at 248-335-9290 to discuss your options. Our office staff handles all animal intakes and will notify you as to whether or not we have space available at that time. In the event that we are at capacity, our office staff can provide you with additional resources and suggestions.
