Who we are

Friends of Berrien County Animal Control (FBCAC) was founded in 2020 to support the work of Berrien County Animal Control by raising funds to enhance the health and wellbeing of animals in their care. With a goal of increasing the number of dogs and cats adopted from the shelter, donated funds will support the following programs:

Heartworm Prevention and Treatment

Heartworm is a deadly, preventable disease that is expensive to treat. For more information:
