Bay County Animal Control

Shelter At Night

Updated COVID-19 Information

Bay County Animal Control may look a little different when you arrive! We have been working to update our shelter to make it feel a little more like home for our pets and your future family members!

Updated Shelter Hours:

Monday - Friday : 10AM - 4 PM

Saturday: 10AM - 3PM

Sunday: Closed

When you arrive you will notice that our gate remains closed as we are taking the health and safety our patrons, our staff, and even our furry friends very seriously. We are currently operating with a unique schedule and there are a few things that we want to make sure everyone is aware of before your arrival:


Adoptions:

ALL ADOPTIONS ARE ON A FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED BASIS ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT. WE CANNOT ACCEPT APPLICATIONS BY PHONE OR EMAIL.

Currently we are conducting adoptions on specific scheduled events. We are limiting the number of families entering our facility at one time and as such we thank you for your patience as there may be a wait to meet your new pet but we assure you that they are as excited to meet you as you are to meet them!

The next adoption events are scheduled as follows:

Wednesday - July, 15   1PM-4PM

Wednesday - July, 22   1PM-4PM

MORE DATES TO COME!

We will not be conducting adoptions Saturday, July 18th as we will be busy helping to distribute food at the Bay County Government Center, we encourage you to come by and see us, tell everyone Animal Control sent you!

Surrendering Animals During COVID-19

As mentioned in the above "Adoptions", our shelter is currently closed due to COVID-19 precautions. We are still available to assist the public by appointment. We offer appointments for owners who are no longer able to care for their pets during our updated business hours above (CALL FOR AVAILABLE APPOINTMENTS). Owner surrenders will not be scheduled during time when our adoption events are taking place. 

If you locate a lost pet in your neighborhood we will be available to assist you on a case by case basis, but we do ask that you still contact our shelter prior to your arrival to ensure a smooth and safe experience.

*Face masks are required for all persons entering our shelter for the safety of our patrons and staff.*
