Open Book is excited to be teaming up with local shelters and adoption agencies to help get word out about animals needing adopting, ways to volunteer, and the exciting and compassionate work these groups do. In Sylvia Greg and Kate’s lives are changed by the adoption of a stray dog, and although it may not always be smooth sailing… well, we don’t want to give away the ending, but it IS a comedy.
Maybe you are looking to be a forever home to a new pet. Or maybe you are interested in helping to care for the pets in transition in our community by fostering, volunteering, or donating. In any case, check out the work of these amazing groups! Click on their logos to be taken directly to their website.

DCAC (Downriver Central Animal Control)
The DCACA’s animal shelter is a collaborative effort among Allen Park, Lincoln Park, Southgate, and Wyandotte. All cities adopted uniform ordinances and combined jurisdictions except for Lincoln Park, which uses the shelter for housing only.
Wyandotte’s animal shelter serves as the main adoption center. All adoptions are handled by Wyandotte’s facility. The Southgate facility serves as the intake facility and holds animals until space is made available at Wyandotte’s adoption center. Often the majority of animals at the intake facility are available for adoption, but the adoption facility is full and they cannot be transferred until space becomes available. Therefore, be sure to look on this Facebook page and on the DCACA’s Adopt-A-Pet page for a listing of the animals that are available for adoption. You may put in an adoption application for an animal that is currently being housed at the Southgate facility by visiting www.wacshelter.com. You may also visit the animal that you are interested in adopting at the Southgate facility during office hours.
