Berrien County Animal Control provides services in the manner of an animal shelter and the administration/law enforcement of animal affairs.


Adoptions of dogs and cats including kittens and puppies are possible. There is a $25 spay/neuter (S/N) fee which is rebated at the time of S/N. On a dog adoption the County of Berrien will match the $25 for a total rebate of $50. The County does not match for cats. Local vets will also provide a health check within 72 hours and give a discount toward spay/neuter.
