Your adopted pet will receive its first set of vaccinations, first deworming, 1 month of flea treatment, will be spayed/ neutered, and microchipped.
We have cats and dogs always looking for forever homes. On occasion, we even get in rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, chickens, goats, and other small farm life that are placed up for adoption.
We are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm. And Saturdays from 10 am to 4 pm.
All stray animals will be held on a 3-5 business day stray hold period to give an owner time to reclaim. If the animal is not reclaimed within the stray hold period, they are then eligible for adoption, rescue pull, or be humanely euthanized.
Call 311 to report any loose animals within city limits. After hours and on weekends, officers will only respond if a stray is caught/contained, or injured.
No, though ACOs work closely with BPD, we are our own department reporting to the assistant city manager.
Ordinance 4.03.001 prohibits dogs from being at large within city limits. A dog outside of a secure enclosure or off its owner's property without a leash will be considered "at-large" and a citation can be issued. To report a dog at large, call 311.
Under ordinance 4.02.003, it is unlawful for any person to abandon, forsake, or dump any dog, cat, or other animals within the city for any reason. Citations will be issued for any person caught dumping animals.
Yes, animal care officers respond to all calls for service involving vicious animals. Please call 311 to report a vicious animal or 911 if it is an emergency.
Never attempt to grab an animal you're unfamiliar with as you never know its temperament. Instead, call Beaumont Animal Care to see if anyone has reported the pet missing. Take a photo of the animal and post it in Facebook groups, Nextdoor, and other apps to spread the word and help find the owner. The animal can also be scanned for a microchip at Beaumont Animal Care or vet clinics.
If your pet went missing, go to your nearest animal shelter and check if your pet is there. You can also send a picture of them to Beaumont Animal Care's Facebook page with details on when/where they went missing. The pet's information will then be posted to their "Lost and Found" photo album online. The most important thing you can do is not lose hope! Check back constantly to see if your pet is at the shelter.
Microchipping your pet is the best way to ensure that your missing cat/dog will find its way back to you. A microchip is administered like a vaccine between the shoulder blades and is roughly the size of a grain of rice. It is not like a GPS tracker but instead carries your information so that you can be contacted once the animal has been picked up by an Animal Care officer or found by a citizen and taken to be scanned. All animals are scanned for a microchip before entering the facility in hopes of reuniting them with their families. Beaumont Animal Care microchips for a fee of $15 every day during normal business hours. No appointment is necessary.
You must be 18 years old, have a valid driver's license, and fill out a pre-adoption application. Once the application is submitted, the potential adopter will have 24 hours, excluding Sundays and Holidays, to call the shelter or stop by the shelter to meet the animal.
Pets that come into our shelter are generally put up for adoption within 72 hours, but there is no guarantee that an animal will go up for adoption. Evaluation of an animal can take several days, depending on signs of illness or temperament problems.
