After Clear Shelter Event, Here are Pets that Still Need Homes
(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 22, 2o17)
Pontiac, MI – With a brand new shelter and animal adoption facility, the cats and dogs that wind up in the care of Oakland County have more space, more privacy and brighter conditions than their previous location in Auburn Hills. However, the goal is to get adoptable animals into their fur-ever homes.
Last weekend 78 animals were sent home with people who will hopefully give them love and care thanks to an Empty the Shelter event sponsored by Bissell Pet Foundation.
Yet there are some animals that remain. Some of the animals are being held for various reasons, like waiting for potential owner pick ups or still going through the vetting process. And others were simply passed over for whatever reason.
Among them is ten-year-old Sausy, a quintessential grumpy cat that mostly just wants to be left alone but will warm up to the right person. Or a fuzzy black cat with inexplicable hair loss problems named Mocha who will need ongoing flea treatment and a calm environment to reduce stress.
There’s also a grey pit bull named Tron who’s recovering from a gash on his head, possibly an injury from another dog. Because of potential liability issues and the care needed to train dogs that might have been mistreated, pit bulls like Tron can be adopted through agencies that partner with Oakland County to find these dogs new homes.
There are also cats and dogs that don’t have any particular special needs, like the beautiful striped tabby with the emerald eyes named Jack Frost or Macy the tall-standing pointer with spots on his skinny legs and belly.
The Oakland County Animal Shelter & Pet Adoption Center is located at 1200 N. Telegraph Rd, Bldg 42E, Pontiac, MI 48341. 248-858-1090. More information on how to give these doggies and kitties a good home can be found at the shelter’s website.
