ABOUT THE DCAC
The DCAC's animal shelter is a collaborative effort among Southgate, Allen Park, and Wyandotte. All cities adopted uniform ordinances and combined jurisdictions.
Wyandotte’s animal shelter serves as the main adoption center. All adoptions are handled by Wyandotte's facility. The Southgate facility serves as the intake facility and holds animals until space is made available at Wyandotte's adoption center.
Animal Control Officers (ACO) work in conjunction with the Michigan Humane Society. They are also certified in euthanasia when an animal is sick or otherwise unable to be safely adopted out.
Often the majority of animals at the intake facility are available for adoption, but the adoption facility is full and they cannot be transferred until space becomes available. Therefore, be sure to follow the DCAC Facebook page and on the DCAC's Adopt-A-Pet page for a listing of the animals that are available for adoption. You may put in an adoption application for an animal that is currently being housed at the Southgate facility by visiting www.wacshelter.com. You may also visit the animal that you are interested in adopting at the Southgate facility during office hours.
