While there is not an actual shelter within the city limits of Birmingham, there is a shelter close by. This shelter is located in Royal Oak, MI. The Royal Oak Animal Shelter was created by the local government to help provide a safe haven for animals in dire need. The shelter itself is located at 1515 N Edgeworth, which is only about 13 minutes from Birmingham city limits. With flexible hours, this shelter is a great place to go while visiting the area. If you find that you are unable to make it to the physical shelter, you are in luck! The shelter provides you with a website where you can take a look at every adoptable animal that they have to offer! How fur-tastic is that?
If you are looking for a way to help out this wonderful shelter, they are always welcoming to helping hands. There is an application to fill out and return to the Royal Oak Police Department before you can get started. To volunteer, do keep in mind that you must be at least 18 years of age, as well as have open availability during the hours needed. This is a great way to get involved with the community and help out all of the local furry friends!
