Macomb County Animal Shelter
I adopted my beagle from here in 2010 with no problems for either of us and he was healthy. The cages and runs were clean(except one recently dirtied and that was being cleaned up). They don't feed the dogs on a free meal basis-it's not good practice to leave food out all the time. The attitude of the personnel was wonderful and professional, and they do care about the animals. My dog went on to training to be a service dog and sadly will be retiring because of his ago(10/11 y.o.) and when I need to get another dog it will definitely be from here.

I recently adopted a German Shep. from here. She did have Kennel Cough but I did expect it. I understand with the high volume of animals coming in and out it is going to happen. Working in the field I know, all it takes is for one pet to come in with Kennel Cough and everyone gets it. Everyone just needs to be aware of this. This place has without a doubt come a long way recently and a lot cleaner than in the past. Keep up the good work.

I adopted two kittens from this shelter. Both did have kennel cough but the vet told me that is common in all shelters and it was easily treated and they have been perfectly healthy ever since. They are now strong happy, healthy adults. The shelter was clean and the staff was friendly when I was there.
Tips & Advices
Most city and county shelters offer affordable spay/neuter services. SPCA and Humane Society shelters also are known for their low-cost spay/neuter programs.
Shelters typically offer spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchipping and some essential medical treatment (deworming, mange treatment) to animals being adopted from the shelter. For other veterinary services, you will need to find a vet.
No-kill and low-kill shelters will state it in their online profile and other official materials. They will usually explain what their process/policy is for looking after the animals in their care. These are also known as “limited admission” shelters because they are usually at full capacity most or all of the time. Also, they often work with rescue organizations or county Animal Services authorities to accommodate animals living in inhumane conditions, abandoned or injured animals.
Anyone can bring a lost animal to a county or municipal shelter. However, private shelters affiliated with rescues often will not accept animals, whether lost or surrendered by owners. Shelters with low-kill policies often have a limited admission capability.
Adopting an adult dog from a county or city shelter usually costs $75-$100. Young adult purebreds and puppies often have a higher adoption fee.  The fee to adopt a cat is usually about $50– sometimes with discounts if one new owner adopts two cats. The adoption fee usually covers the cost of spay/neuter surgery and essential vaccinations.
