15 Adoptable Animals Looking for Love

15 Adoptable Animals Looking for Love

(Crystal A. Proxmire, April 11, 2018)

Pontiac, MI – Today is National Pet Day, and those who feel left out may be happy to know that there are many cats and dogs in Oakland County that are waiting for their fur-ever home.  One place to adopt a stray or surrendered pet is at the Oakland County Pet Adoption Center at 1200 N. Telegraph Road Building 42E.  There is even a special “Empty the Shelters” Day coming up on May 5 that is sponsored by the Bissell Pet Foundation.  From 10am to 4pm on May 5, 2018 Bissell will pay adoption fees for those picking out a pet that day.  In November the event helped 78 animals find new homes.

The shelter currently has quite a few black cats and tabbies, plus a charming 11 year old white cat with a mustache-like mark below his nose named François.  A volunteer said that François had been with the same family his entire life, but they surrendered him because in his older age he didn’t like to be in the car and go on road trips any more.

For those who like dogs there are many larger canines.  Pitt bulls  are adopted out through a third party agency that specializes in that breed.  Gregory, for example, is a 49 lb pitt bull terrier mix with a reddish coat with white markings who is looking for an owner that likes to play and give him lots of exercise.

More information on how to give these doggies and kitties a good home can be found at the Oakland County Pet Adoption Center website.
