Please be on the lookout for a missing kitty, last seen at 19616 Firesteel Road (just past the golf course) in Ontonagon. We have no photo at this time, but she's a large gray cat resembling a Russian Blue that went missing on 7/31/21. If spotted, please call Lynn at 906-281-9734. If you can get her into a safe place like a garage and keep her there until her family can pick her up it would be much appreciated.

Is anyone looking for a barn cat and doesn't care if it's feral? We are again getting calls to remove cats from properties or they will be shot. OCAP humanely traps them, tests them for feline leukemia, heartworm, and feline immunodeficiency virus, spays or neuters, and administers a rabies vaccination - and will deliver within a 5-hour radius (farther negotiable if we're desperate). These cats are not going to be cuddlers, but they will be excellent hunters as that's their lifestyle. We ask that they be provided solid shelter, water, and supplemental food. They'll earn the rest. If interested, call Jan Wolfe at 906-884-2429. Leave a message if no answer.

Remember Lucy? She's still with us and looking for a quiet home with no other cats. She's around 10 so has many good years ahead of her, but she's afraid of other cats so should be in a single-cat home. Lucy can also be fostered if you aren't ready to make a commitment. Our goal is to find her a happy place outside the shelter where she will receive the attention she craves. She will return that affection 10-fold.

Is this your kitty? He's been hanging around a place on M-26 near Rockland for about a month, and the homeowner has been feeding him. The house is sold, so he's now come to the shelter. He's not feral but he doesn't want to be handled by strangers. His good body condition hints that he had a home at some point, and we hope his family is looking for him. Please pass this on, especially if you know someone missing a DSH light orange and white cat. For more information or to see him, contact Jan Wolfe at 906-884-2429 or [email protected]

The first raccoons of the year have arrived.
If you see an adult raccoon somewhere you don't want it (attic, garage, etc.) DO NOT just shoot it or trap and relocate it. They have young this time of year that will then be orphaned.

General information

OCAPโ€™s shelter is a No-Time-Limit Shelter. Because our license limits the number of animals we can accommodate and still maintain a healthy environment, and because we do not euthanize healthy animals to make room for new ones, we may not be able to accept all animals we are asked to take. All animals accepted into the shelter are loved and cared for until the right home is found. If OCAP canโ€™t accept an animal, weโ€™ll work with the surrendering party to help find options other than euthanasia. In the case of unwanted pets, owners will be asked to do whatever they can on their own to find suitable homes for their pets before asking the shelter to take on that responsibility. OCAP volunteers work with the animals in our care to ensure a smooth transition into a new family. We adopt only to homes that consider pets to be part of the family, which means they will be treated with lifelong love, care, and respect. Our adoption fees are considerably less than the cost to adopt a โ€œfreeโ€ pet and assume the expense of spaying/neutering, worming, flea and tick control, and basic vaccinations. Our goal is to find good homes for our residents, not to make money on them.
