Pet Supplies Plus in White Lake, Michigan is looking for homes for 200 cats & kittens; June 3-5 and FREE pet health exams June 5


Store owner honored for placing more than 4,000 cats

 Pet Supplies Plus of White Lake, Michigan is looking for homes for 200 cats and kittens that will come from Oakland Pet Adoption Center (part of Oakland County Animal Control) for a cat adoption event  Friday, June 3 through Sunday, June 5.  The store will also host a Pet HealthCare Fair on Sunday, June 5 featuring FREE wellness exams for cats and dogs plus reduced-cost veterinary services including vaccines, microchipping and more.     

Recent economic concerns have resulted in a larger number than usual of pets being surrendered at Oakland County shelters.  Due to the large number of cats and kittens without homes, Pet Supplies Plus is hoping that many of the 200 will get adopted.  

The 200 cats and kittens -- in every color and breed imaginable including purebreds -- are all spayed or neutered, examined by a licensed veterinarian and vaccinated.  Adoption fees of $59 per cat or kitten go to Oakland Pet Adoption Center.    All adopters will get a goody bag for their new pet that includes pet food and toys.    

“We are hoping that all or most of the cats and dogs will find loving homes,” says store owner Addy Shattuck.  “Many of these beautiful animals were someone’s pet that they were unable to keep.   Our adoption event is a great way to meet your new family member and give a loving pet a good home.”   

Shattuck, who owns three Pet Supplies Plus stores in White Lake and Bloomfield Hills, has been putting cats up for adoption in her stores since 1991.  During this time she has found homes for more than 4,000 cats and kittens working with various shelters and rescue groups including Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills, Bloomfield Twp. Animal Control and others.  Shattuck was recently recognized with an award from Oakland County for her efforts.

The adoption event will be held in a 4,500-square-foot retail space adjacent to Pet Supplies Plus.  Use of the space has been donated by shopping center owner Richard Zoner who also owns Farmer John’s Greenhouse in Farmington Hills.
  

The Pet HealthCare Fair, which will be held inside Pet Supplies Plus will offer FREE wellness exams for dogs and cats as well as low-cost veterinary services including distemper vaccines, rabies vaccines, heartworm vaccines, feline leukemia testing, microchipping and more.  The Pet HealthCare Fair is being run by

Hours for the cat adoption event are 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, June 3; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, June 4; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, June 5.   Hours for the Pet HealthCare Fair are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, June 5.  Pet Supplies Plus in White Lake is at 6845 Highland Rd. (M-59).   For information, call

  28. I love to learn of partnerships like this. It is so sad that so many doggies and kitties are still looking for a home. And it's not their fault that irresponsible people fail them regarding spaying and neutering.
