BLOOMFIELD HILLS (WWJ) - Hundreds of cats and kittens are looking for a better chance at life this weekend during an adoption event in Oakland County.
The Bloomfield Hills Pet Supplies Plus store is hosting the event, where 200 felines of all different breeds, colors and personalities from Oakland Pet Adoption Center in Auburn Hills and Roscommon Animal Shelter will be looking for their forever homes.
Addy Shattuck, owner of the Bloomfield Hills Pet Supplies Plus store, said her stores have adopted out more than 5,000 cats.
“At each adoption event, we are reminded how unique and special cats are,” she said. “Unfortunately the shelters are overcrowded, so we are trying to do our part to find more of them homes.”
An adoption fee of $59 includes spay/neuter, vaccines and tests. Adopted cats and kittens get also a free wellness exam courtesy of Ross Hospital for Animals.
As a bonus, the 100th cat adopter will win a $100 Pet Supplies Plus shopping spree and the 200th adopter wins a $500 Pet Supplies Plus shopping spree.
The 200-cat adoption event hours are from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 18 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 19.
The store is also holding a Pet Fitness Fair on Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. Veterinarian Jonathan Ross of Ross Hospital for Animals in Bloomfield Hills will perform fitness evaluations of dogs and cats that include a body mass and weight assessment, and provide tips on early disease prevention and nutrition information.
