Pet Adoption Center offers free cat adoption Saturday

Individuals who meet screening requirements may adopt cats for free this weekend at Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center’s “Certified Pre-Owned Cat Adoption Event” on Saturday, July 12 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Dogs also will be available for adoption at regular prices. There will be a “spin the wheel” game in the lobby, however, for a chance to adopt a dog at a reduced price.

This event is one of a series of pet adoption events to help the center win a $100,000 grant from Rachel Ray and the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The center’s goal is to adopt out 2,014 pets during the months of June, July and August.

“I encourage residents to come on out to this family-friendly event,” County Executive L. Brooks Patterson said. “There will be plenty of entertainment and you may find a new friend.”

“There will be food trucks, bounce houses and face painting for kids, a psychic, pet-supply vendors, raffles and more,” said Joanie Toole, chief of Animal Control Division.

Individuals seeking to adopt a dog or cat should have their identification available. The screening process includes questions about prior pet ownership, type of residence, and whether pets are allowed there, among others.

The Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center is located at 1700 Brown Road in Auburn Hills. To support its goal of adopting out 2014 pets in June, July and August, the center will host another adoption event called the “Dog Days of Summer and Cool Cat Nights” on Saturday, Aug. 9 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
