 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.”

Counselors will be on hand to help potential adopters find their new best friend, including a meet and greet area to get to know new dog family members a little better in a separate section.  Attendees will enjoy adoption specials, be able to shop Shelter merchandise and purchase Fido Bakery treats for their canine best friends.

Summer is a busy time for animal shelters, especially as kitten season moves into full swing, so there are many pets for families to consider.   Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter, commented “This Adopt-A-Thon kicks off the summer season for us and is similar to bringing a one day “pop-up” Shelter to a highly visible location for one day.  It’s a great way for us to feature many adoptable pets in a fun festive atmosphere. We’re bringing available pets to the public to help them find their new best friend”.   

 

This is the third year in a row that the event is being hosted in the parking lot of Home Depot in Allen Park.  A second offsite tented Adopt-A-Thon will take place in the parking lot of Westborn Mall on Saturday, August 22nd at the intersection of Outer Drive and Michigan Avenue.
