DETROIT – Ah, commitment issues, many people have them, but not many will admit to it.

If you’re one of those people who prefers to dip your toes instead of hopping right into the pool, check out this new offer from the Michigan Humane Society:

Starting this Saturday, July 7 and running for a limited time, every MHS cat or kitten is eligible for a unique “Lease to Adopt” program. Lessees can take home an MHS Certified Pre-Owned Cat for up to four months, and if they are not completely convinced they have found their new best friend, they can return the cat to MHS which will in turn find the feline a new home.

Best of all, lessees don’t have to pay a single cent for many of the maintenance costs that come with taking home an MHS Certified Pre-Owned Cat. Compliments of Purina and MHS, the Free Maintenance Package provides lessees with cat food and litter at no additional cost to them for the duration of the lease. The lease package also includes standard microchipping, sterilization and any necessary vaccinations, as well as any additional required veterinary care at no cost (up to $750).

“These ‘better than new’ companions offer the best in unconditional love and come loaded with tons of amazing features,” said Michael Robbins, MHS Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “We know that when you take home one of our cat or kitten models, you’re going to be impressed. But we can offer this amazing deal for a limited time only, so head down to one of the MHS showrooms to find your new best friend today!”

MHS’ Certified Pre-Owned Cats come with adorable features, the latest technology and include many makes and models. Best of all, they’re available for just one low payment of $40 or $65, with 0 percent financing. Under the Lease to Adopt program, if the cat is not working out for whatever reason, lessees can bring them back to MHS for the duration of the lease and receive a full refund of the adoption price. If the lessee wants to adopt their new friend, they can simply keep them past the lease dates.

Leasing terms are applicable to cats adopted during the promotional period beginning July 7 from all MHS adoption centers and off-site adoption locations. All leases will end on November 17, 2012.

You can meet your very own Certified Pre-Owned Cat at the following MHS locations between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays:

  • MHS Detroit Center for Animal Care: 7401 Chrysler Drive in Detroit – (313) 872-3400
  • MHS Rochester Hills Center for Animal Care: 3600 W. Auburn Road in Rochester Hills – (248) 852-7420
  • MHS Berman Center for Animal Care: 900 N. Newburgh Road in Westland – (734) 721-4195

In addition, MHS Certified Pre-Owned Cats can be adopted from any one of six PetSmart locations: in Chesterfield, Dearborn, Rochester Hills, Roseville, Taylor and West Bloomfield; and at Petco in Sterling Heights. For hours, location details or any additional information on the Lease to Adopt program, please visit or call 1-866-MHUMANE.

The MHS is bursting at the seams with felines and the goal of this promotion is to get them out of showrooms and into good homes.
