HSHV cannot accept stray animals from the City of Ann Arbor directly from the public without formal approval from the City of Ann Arbor Police Department.
Per City of Ann Arbor Animal Control Ordinance, stray and abandoned animals must be brought in by an Animal Control Officer or Police Officer.
In addition, HSHV cannot provide Animal Control related field services to the City of Ann Arbor, including the free pick-up of sick or injured wildlife without formal approval from the City of Ann Arbor Police Department.
Due to possible contagious disease spread including rabies, please do NOT handle sick wildlife on your own or allow pets to come into contact with them.
