MASON, Mich. — Ingham County Animal Control & Shelter (ICACS) has moved into its new facilities. The operations reopened for animal shelter services on June 5th. The shelter has resumed full services and is ready to celebrate their new facilities with the public.

Please join us for the Grand Opening ceremony on June 14th at 2pm. This open event celebrates the hard work and dedication over the last three years when the millage passed by a significantly positive vote, and then the planning and construction process. Granger Construction built the brand new facilities with over 10 tons of steel, 4,000 cubic yards of concrete, and approximately 115 miles of wiring. The new shelter has a greatly expanded floorplan, provides exceptional space for the animals in its care, and boasts an extensive medical suite.

The Grand Opening ceremony will be presided over by Ingham County Commissioners Bryan Crenshaw, Carol Koenig, and Robin Naeyaert, and former commissioner Penelope Tsernoglou. Ingham County Animal Shelter Fund Chairperson Holly Thompson will be presenting Shelter Director Jodi LeBombard with the ceremonial check of $300,000 from their highly successful Capital Campaign.

Immediately following the Grand Opening ceremony, the annual summer Adopt-A-Fest will begin with discounted adoptions at the shelter all day and night straight through until 6pm on Saturday, June 15th. Adoptions will be discounted to $30 for dogs, $10 for adult cats and kittens, and $5 for senior cats.
