If your New Year’s resolution is to become a mom or dad to a loveable animal, then Detroit Animal Care has the perfect event for you. After all, it’s a more doable resolution than trying to lose a ton of weight or skip the sweets, right?
The organization is hosting free adoption events to help as many animals as possible find their forever homes. The event will offer free adoptions, according to a press release, waiving all license fees. They’ll also offer strays with microchips a free ride home.
“Our message to Detroiters is, ‘Come get your pets,'” director of animal care & control for the Detroit Health Department Mark Kumpf said in a statement. “We have many deserving dogs and cats waiting to find their Furever homes, so we are waiving all adoption and licensing fees throughout the New Year holiday.”
According to the press release, dogs are neutered and will go home with a leash, collar, supply of food and a goody bag packed with treats. All dogs and cats up for adoption have been microchipped and vaccinated against rabies. They’ve also had their initial set of vaccinations.
“We want all Detroiters to microchip their pets. It is the safest and most efficient way to reunite pets with their owners,” Kumpf said. “We are able to offer New Year’s Amnesty to strays this holiday weekend who are microchipped. This allows our Animal Control Officers to locate the pet owners, and be able to bring them to their humans instead of our facility.”
