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 reduced adoption fees, can shop Shelter merchandise and select from fresh Fido Bakery treats for their canine best friends.

Summer is a busy time for animal shelters, and there are many pets for families to consider.   Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter, commented “Adopt-A-Thons help improve the potential for our animals to get adopted. This is the third year that Westborn Mall has hosted one for us and it is great place to feature many adoptable pets in a high profile location.”      

This year, Lori Bennett, 96.3 WDVD midday on-air talent will be on hand from 11a.m.-1p.m. to greet attendees and welcome fans with a little music and fun.

  11. Of course I want everybody adopted, but I have my concerns about same-day adoptions. I like the 24 hour wait, to make really sure the people want the pet. Plus it gives the family time to set up a safe-room, purchase litter boxes and carriers, etc. My two cents...

    1. I adopted Cody "same day" from an adoption drive that Petco had in 2007. I adopted him and immediately brought him home. He's none the worse for wear! lol. Also, about 2 yrs ago when I volunteered at an adoption event at Kitty City, I paid the adoption fee for a family who also brought him home the same day. They had no problems either. I guess it boils down to an individual decision.

  16. That does sound like it will be a great event...purrs and prayers for it to be a great success and for many safe, loving forever homes to be found. (Hope all is okay where you are Caren and that you have been safe from any flooding.)

    1. Thanks so much!!!!! Well, about 15 minutes away from us had MAJOR flooding....just awful. People literally lost their homes and cars. It was UNREAL! There has been nothing like that here for many, many years. We are in an apt/condo building, so thankfully we don't have to worry about a house with a flooded basement (we are also on 2nd floor, which in our building is the top floor). Thanks so much for asking, it was quite bad here and some areas near us are still flooded. xoxo
