Michigan Summer Adopt-A-Thon to Feature 50 or More Adoptable Pets
Potential new pet family members
will be waiting on Saturday, June 18th.
Attendees will enjoy adoption specials and be able to shop Shelter merchandise. Adoption counselors will be on hand to help visitors find their new best friend, including a meet and greet area to get to know new dog family members in a separate section.
Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit, 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. Each year, we find that prospective adopters really appreciate the opportunity to see so many animals showcased under the tent, in an easily accessible place on a Saturday. It’s a completely different feel they tell us, than seeing the adoptable animals while in the Shelter”.
This is the fourth year that the event is being hosted in the parking lot of Home Depot in Allen Park. It will also be the location for this year’s second offsite tented Adopt-A-Thon on Saturday, August 13th.
