Lost Dogs/Cats

Mount Clemens takes all stray animals to the Macomb County Animal Shelter. You may contact them at 586-469-5115. If an animal is licensed and wearing tags, the owner will be notified that the pet has been found.

Animal Control Ordinance 35.210 requires that:

  • All Dogs and Cats must be Licensed by January 1st of each year.  A current rabies vaccination certificate with expiration date must be presented for either species in order to obtain a license.
  • A household may have a total of four (4) dogs or cats, or a combination of both totaling (4).
  • All Dogs and Cats must wear Licensed Tags when outside a building or residence or otherwise outdoors.
  • All dogs and cats shall be kept under restraint (leashed) and not permitted to be at large.

All Dogs and Cats must be Licensed even if they never leave the house.

Failure to obtain a license will result in the issuance of a violation and a fine.
