DETROIT (WWJ) – The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) will join a number of other area animal welfare organizations and pet rescues for the 2011 Pet-A-Palooza, being held June 25 and 26 at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
The event will run from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and 11 am to 4 pm on Sunday, in the Palace parking lot. Parking for the event is $5.
MHS’ adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for adoption. There will also be small animals such as rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs.
MHS adoption fees for cats four months and older are $20, while kittens are $75, or two for $100. Adoption fees for dogs vary by age and breed. Both dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered and received age-appropriate vaccinations. All cats have been microchipped at no additional cost.
Hundreds of animals from a number of local adoption groups will also be on-hand, along with a variety of exciting events and pet-related products and services. Animals from mixed breed to purebreds will be available. Typical adoption fees range from $50 to $125, although each rescue group has their own adoption policies and fees.
Adopters are encouraged to bring all family members, including pets, to meet the potential new member of the family.
MHS is also providing microchipping to four-legged attendees at the discounted rate of $18.
Microchipping a pet takes just a few seconds and causes the animal minimal discomfort. The procedure provides the animal with a permanent form of identification that allows veterinarians and humane organizations, no matter their location, to identify a lost or stolen pet and contact the owner.
