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.



Please join us for the next Volunteer Orientation!
Learn about the ICACS organization and what it means to be part of the team.
September 14th, at 12pm at the shelter in the community room.
We can't wait to meet you!

Ingham County Animal Control & Shelter is reaching capacity for dogs and cats in their care. Even with the new expanded facilities, the shelter is seeing record numbers of animal intakes. In July, there were 277 cats brought to the shelter, and 113 dogs. With these high volume numbers coming into the shelters care, adoption discounts are another step to reduce shelter volume. ICACS is now holding “Name Your Price” adoption special. Once prospective adopters complete their adoption interview, they are able to name their own adoption fee*. They say money can’t buy happiness, but being able to choose your own fee to adopt a new family member is pretty close.

*Dog license must still be purchased when applicable.

Join us on Saturday, October 19th for our annual Save A Life Soiree! As we move the annual gala to the fall, we are celebrating the season with a Paw-squarade. Our goal is to raise funds for our Animal Care Fund, which provides surgeries, medications and other life saving treatments. Enjoy an evening of silent and live auctions, dinner and more. Join us for a night of fun while supporting Ingham County's homeless animals!
