Andrea Kolanowski-Sesi, co-founder of I-Heart, says the event will feature food, a beer garden, lots of dogs and more.
“We are going to have music by Matt Webber of the Mega 80’s, he actually adopted a dog from us before,” Kolanowski-Sesi said. “Then we are going to have a mutt strut where we will be featuring some of our I-Heart dogs walking the red carpet. Anybody who submits an adoption application day of the open house will receive $50 off their adoption fee.”READ MORE: Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy Seeks Additional Funding To Investigate LGBTQ Hate Crimes
