“Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo is the perfect event to find that special dog, cat, kitten or puppy to add to your family,” said Michael Robbins, MHS Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “With so many  adoption groups from around the state and beyond, you’re sure to find your new best friend.”

The Detroit Zoo is located at 8450 W. 10 Mile Road in Royal Oak. There is no charge for admission or parking for the event, which takes place under large tents in the front parking lot. The event does not include admission to the zoo.

 

Because puppies are often in high demand, “puppy passes” will be given each day to the first 25 adoption event guests who are looking specifically to adopt a puppy. Those with puppy passes will be allowed to enter the adoption tents 15 minutes before the event begins each day. Doing so will prevent a “puppy rush” and ensure that all adopters – and the adoptable animals – will have a wonderful experience.

Unexpected Gifts Are The BEST! Thankful Thursday

Hi and happy New Year every one!

Hope you rang wagged it in, in style!! Wishing every one a pawsome and healthy 2014!

Before I lock the vault on 2013 I have something super special to share with you today and Monday too!

While going about my daily doggy tasks a week or so ago, there was a knock at the door. It was my good buddy nemesis, MR.MAIL PERSON!! He had a special package just for me!

I wasn’t expecting anything so I couldn’t imagine who it could be from, or what it could be. I opened the box and received the surprise of my life!

It seems that Santa conspired with one of my favorite doggy friends, Pepper Pomeranian, from the blog Pepper’s Paws  and they sent me a super cool gift for CHANUKAH!!  I was spinning with delight!

Look at what I got!

 It was a plush Chanukah dog toy from last season’s PetSmart Multipet Plush Chanukah line!

I couldn’t wait to put the bitey on it!

Mom tried to get a good video of me playing with it, but once I realized that once again my privacy was being violated by being  filmed, I wanted no part of it!

THANK YOU PEPPER for this most THOUGHTFUL and DEEPLY APPRECIATED GIFT! You helped to make my holiday extra special! I will think of you every time I play with it!
