Everyone is welcome to stop by, say hello, visit with the dogs and cats, and/or make a donation of food, blankets, towels, toys or cash.

“We are delighted to be included in this very special adoption event. We are a ‘no-kill’ shelter based on our live release rate of more than 90 percent through today, and events like ‘Pets for Presents’ help us,” said Mark Kumpf, Detroit Animal Care Director. “Detroit Animal Care will send a friendly group of medium and large dogs, and cats, to ‘Pets for Presents’ this weekend. We have plenty more deserving, sweet animals who are waiting for transport if there is interest. I invite everyone to take a break from holiday shopping at the Oakland Mall this Saturday, visit our play area and check out the dogs and cats we have ready to go. You just might ring in the holidays with a new best friend.”

Shoppers are encouraged to bring donations. They can also fund a Kuranda Dog Bed which will provide comfort to an animal in need at the Detroit Animal Care shelter. The beds are specially designed to help animals rest and sleep, reducing stress. They are easy to clean and sanitize. Anyone who would like to sponsor the purchase of a Kuranda Dog Bed may do so by visiting the Detroit Animal Care shelter wish list at:
