Ingham Co. Animal Shelter Opens Doors To Help

Posted: Updated:

MASON, Mich. (WLNS) - Because warming shelters don't allow pets, Ingham County Animal Control opened its doors to help.

The Mason shelter is housing pets at no charge for those who absolutely need it. Workers at the shelter are also helping those who lost or found a pet during the storm to get them home safely.

Officials at the shelter say animals are okay to be left at home with plenty of food and water, so long as temperatures inside stay above freezing and they can be let out.

"If they can shelter in place, in their own home, then that is preferable because it is less stress for the animal. But if that option is not available, then they can bring them to us. We'll be here [Tuesday] from 12 to 4, as well," said Jamie McAloon Lampman, the director of Ingham County Animal Control.

The shelter also posted on its Facebook page, "If anyone needs temporary shelter for their pet call 517 676-8376 we will open the shelter from noon until 4 pm on Dec 24 Th. to admit animals temporarily due to the ice storm."

For more information, call the shelter at 517-676-8370. Their address is 600 Curtis Street in Mason.
