Pet Independence Days edited

 The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is celebrating “Pet Independence Days” now through Sunday, July 10 with low-cost adoption fees for cats and dogs (excluding lap dogs) who are 1-year-old and older. During the promotion, an adult cat or dog can be adopted for $17.76 at any MHS adoption location. The regular MHS adoption process will apply, and all adoptions will include the valuable MHS adoption package.

“Summer is all about families spending time together, and many homeless pets are waiting for their second chance to be a part of a family,” said CJ Bentley, MHS Senior Director of Operations. “We’re celebrating the Independence Day holiday by reducing adoption fees so the dogs and cats in our care can more quickly pursue their forever homes and a lifetime of happiness.”

Visit MHS at:

  • MHS Dresner Foundation Animal Care Campus (Detroit): 7887 Chrysler Dr.
  • MHS Rochester Hills Center for Animal Care: 3600 W. Auburn Rd.
  • MHS Berman Center for Animal Care (Westland): 900 N. Newburgh Rd.

In addition, MHS cats can be adopted at PetSmart in Roseville at 20530 E. 13 Mile Rd.; Premier Pet Supply in both Novi at 47810 Grand River Ave. and Rochester Hills at 63 W. Auburn Rd., while MHS cats and dogs can be adopted at Petco in Sterling Heights at 13701 Lakeside Cir.

Adoption hours vary by location. For the complete list of MHS locations and hours, visit www.michiganhumane.org.


The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

    That is a nice idea, but I hope people wait to adopt until after the fireworks end as it could be so frightening for a new pet in a home.

  14. I hope the lower adoption fees helped.

    This past weekend I met a beautiful pitbull at the Home Depot. The guy told me he’d driven to Michigan to get him. What a sweet boy he was. Laid right down on the floor at my feet.

    In CT our out of state adoption fees are cheap, I think something like $5.

    Hope you had a wonderful 4th!
