Almost 200 cats and around 40 dogs are being cared for and await adoption in the new Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter.

To maximize space, the new facility contains three meet-and-greet rooms that gives the shelter more space if extra animals were to be taken in.

There are also double-sided dog kennels that allow the dogs to go outside and play on their new turf area, then go back into the kennel to rest.

The shelter also has improved medical features as well.

“Now we have a dedicated surgery suite, which is honestly it’s a fantastic facility. We have x-ray services, we have multiple surgery tables, and portable gurneys, and it’s a really really great facility for animals that are coming in that may not be in the greatest condition,” said customer service manager, Kate Turner.

The new shelter is in Mason, behind the 55th District Court.
