 Keep an eye out for Exchange Club volunteers on Saturday May 10th as they hit the streets for a collection drive at key intersections along Michigan Avenue, in support of the Dearborn Animal Shelter’s 9th Annual Mutt Strut & Pet Expo.  Donations will benefit adoptable animals in the care of the shelter.


“Our members and volunteers are excited about lending a hand again this spring. Many people driving down Michigan Avenue that day might not otherwise know about Mutt Strut, and this could be a great way for them to help too.”  Adorned with bright vests, the canister collection team is going to be stationed at each intersection along Michigan Avenue extending from Outer drive to Oakwood Boulevard.  Plus, there’s one satellite location at Dearborn Farm Market at Monroe and Outer drive.

  11. What a cool event! I wish we had a springtime event like that here. The local Bark in the Park is in October, but last year they upped the prices so much that we could barely afford to go. I hope you have a lot of fun there, Dakota!
