How You Can Help

Support Our Cause


Together, we make a difference in the lives of animals. Adopt-A-Pet needs you to help with this important mission. The animals who find us don’t have a voice and can’t help themselves. There are several ways you can help, whether it's giving your time, resources or a monetary donation. It all helps!

Throw Us a Bone

Did You Know?
We operate strictly through donations. Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.
receives no government or county funding.

You may call our center to donate or mail your check or money order to:  

Adopt-A-Pet, Inc.

13575 N Fenton Rd

Fenton, MI 48430

Bottle/Can Drive

Bottle/Can Drive

Don't like the mess? Drop your bottles/cans off at our center in Fenton and we will gladly take them back to raise money for the animals!  It helps immensely if they come to us presorted - cans in one bag, plastic in one bag, and bottles in boxes.  

This has become one of our larger sources of income for the animals.  This helps with much-needed "additional" medical procedures such as specialty surgeries, treatment for kennel cough, eye infections, dental cleanings, etc.  Please keep those bottles and cans coming!


Sponsor an Animal

Adopt-A-Pet’s mission is to find each animal a loving forever home where they will enjoy life to its fullest. However, some of our animals come to us with medical or social conditions that prolong their stay here or make it harder for them to be adopted. We never turn our back on these animals. Rather, we strive to give them all the love in our hearts. While we have an endless amount of love to share, money is often in short supply.


Adopt-A-Pet asks those of you who cannot bring a pet into your homes at this time or for those whose homes are already filled with dogs and cats to please consider sponsoring one of our long-term animals. Sponsorship can be a one-time donation or a monthly one. Either way, you will be helping Adopt-A-Pet provide for lovable companion animals who can really use your support.


To sponsor an animal, please call Adopt-A-Pet at (810) 629-0723.

Our volunteers are the heart and soul of Adopt-A-Pet. Most work directly with the animals by walking dogs, grooming animals and general socialization. Some transport animals to events, vet offices or pick up animals from other overcrowded shelters, etc. While other volunteers assist with fundraising activities, picking up food donations, working special events, office work and cleaning. Adopt-A-Pet could not exist without all of the amazing volunteers who give their hearts and souls for the animals. 


Volunteering for an animal shelter is not all fun. It’s also hard, tedious, messy and sometimes smelly work - but without those things done well, the animals would not be as happy or healthy. Happy, healthy animals is what we’re all about! Seeing those healthy animals is the rewarding part of volunteering. Ask any of the existing volunteers and they will tell you how much they love it!
