Adopt-A-Pet has been in the Fenton community since 1973. It continues to grow year after year, and in 2018 we adopted out 1058 animals. They have their own surgical room, including an x-ray machine, and not only do spays and neuters for their own animals but for a dozen or so other animal rescue groups. Adopt-A-Pet has a dedicated medical director and because of her efforts, they have helped Genesee County Animal Control and the local police departments when animals have been found shot, hit by cars, and abused by their owners.
In 2017, they nursed back to health and found a forever home for Harvey Dent whose previous owner had set him on fire.
Before adopted, all animals are spayed, neutered, fully vaccinated, and microchipped. All of this takes time and money. Adopt A Pet receives 100% of its funding from donations and fundraising.
