In an effort to help adoptable cats find homes quickly during the extra-busy warm weather season, when shelters across the country are bursting at the seams with felines, the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) has announced a “Name Your Own Price” promotion for its cat adoptions. “Name Your Own Price” will began on Monday, August 18 at all MHS adoption locations and will continue for a limited time only. During the promotion, adopters can name their own adoption fee on MHS Certified Pre-Owned cats and kittens; any chosen adoption fee will be honored. The regular MHS adoption process will apply.  Cody and I love when Michigan Humane does this, it enables so many cats who might not have found a home, find their FUREVER home!

"The more quickly we find loving homes for these cats and kittens, the sooner we can help even more cats in need.”, said CJ Bentley, MHS senior director of operations.

MHS is the original home of “Certified Pre-Owned Cats,” which are available in many makes and models, and Cody and I are proud to partner with Michigan Humane, helping to spread the word about as many of their adoption events as possible! Each kitty comes with a multi-point inspection, spay or neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, standard microchipping and more.

Meet your very own Certified Pre-Owned Cat at one of the three MHS adoption centers, Monday through Saturday (hours vary by location):

  • MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care: 7401 Chrysler Drive
  • MHS Rochester Hills Center for Animal Care: 3600 W. Auburn Road
  • MHS Berman Center for Animal Care (Westland): 900 N. Newburgh Road

In addition, MHS Certified Pre-Owned Cats can be adopted seven days a week during regular store hours at five PetSmart locations: in Dearborn, Rochester Hills, Roseville, Taylor and West Bloomfield; and at Petco in Sterling Heights.
For the complete list of MHS adoption locations and hours, visit www.michiganhumane.org.

The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

  1. That second cat photo looks soooo sad! :( Makes me want to adopt ANOTHER cat but not sure if Oli and Nubes would be too happy with me if they get another lil friend haha.

  2. How cute is Zz. here's hoping he finds a new home soon!

  3. That is a great idea and we hope name your own price will be a great success and so many more kitties find forever homes. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  4. We're purring that the name your own price promotion brings lots of deserving cats to forever homes!

  5. We hope it's a great success. Not to be a killjoy, the problem is that it easily could tempt people who *shouldn't* adopt a cat to do so. We hope the shelters actually do checks on the individuals wishing to adopt, but here in our city we believe it's only for dog adoptions. Certainly our human never was checked out, in spite of the form she had to fill out. So we're a bit leery of these almost give-aways. We ARE purring for wonderful and true forever homes for many, though.

    1. Hi my friend! I understand (and appreciate) your concern, but yep, Michigan Humane DOES go through the paperwork requirements for cats too!

  6. We hope lots and lots of cats get adopted!!!

  16. that is a good idea to find homes when the shelter is full. Our county fair is starting next week & our local shelter always has a few adoptables to showcase. I will have to mention this promotion to them. Lots of animals need good homes.
