Animal Shelter hosting Summer Adopt-A-Thon Meet 50 or more adoptable animals on Saturday, June 13th. Dearborn, Michigan"Re
The first of two large offsite tented Adopt-a-Thons this summer takes place on Saturday, June 13th from 10a-4pm in the parking lot in front of Home Depot in Allen Park in the Fairlane Green II shopping mall. Home Depot is near the Oakwood boulevard entrance to the mall, described locally as “On the Hill”, just off Southfield freeway. The Dearborn Animal Shelter plans to have 50 animals or more available for adoption that day including playful kittens, adult cats, all shapes and sizes of dogs and possibly even puppies!
Counselors will be on hand to help potential adopters find their new best friend.
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.
