Meet up to 80 adoptable animals on Sat., June 14th! Dearborn Animal Shelter hosting Summer Adopt-A-Thon! #Michigan
The first of two tented Adopt-a-Thons this summer takes place on Saturday, June 14th from 10am-5pm in the parking lot in front of Home Depot in Allen Park in the Fairlane Green II shopping mall, locally known as “On the Hill”, near Oakwood Boulevard and Southfield Freeway. The Dearborn Animal Shelter plans to have 80 animals available for adoption that day in all shapes and sizes, kittens, puppies, adult cats and dogs.
Counselors will be on hand to help potential adopters find their new best friend, including a meet and greet area to get to know dogs a little better in a separate section. Attendees will enjoy adoption specials, can shop Shelter merchandise and Fido Bakery treats for their canine best friends.
A fun new addition this year, pet psychics are stopping by the Adopt-A-Thon from 12 noon to 2pm. They will help share insight with new adopters about ways in which the new pet family member can settle in to their home more easily.
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 is a great way for us to feature many adoptable pets in a high-profile location. We are essentially making the Shelter mobile for a day, bringing pets to the public to find their new best friend”.
The second Summer Adopt-A-Thon will take place in the parking lot of Westborn Mall on Saturday, August 16th, at the intersection of Outer Drive and Michigan Avenue.
