Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit (FAMD) is looking to run out of their inventory of adorable cats and dogs on Saturday, August 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the adoption event in the Home Depot parking lot, 3163 Fairlane Drive, Allen Park.
“August 20 is International Homeless Animal Day,” said Elaine Greene, executive director, FAMD. “Our goal is to have all of our shelter dogs and cats in forever homes by that date. Help us place all of our animals by visiting the adoption event August 13 at Home Depot.”
