Fifteen-month-old tortoiseshell Patches will be one of the first MHS cats to benefit from a new off-site adoption program. MHS is partnering with the PetSmart at M-59 and Adams in Rochester Hills, which will house several cats and kittens in its comfortable pet adoption area. Adopters can visit the store seven days a week to adopt a feline friend.
Cat Adoption Program Launched At PetSmartMHS Adoptable Cats can now be Found at PetSmart in Rochester Hills, Seven Days a Week!
There were no astronauts in sight, but on Friday, Sept. 12, shoppers at a local pet-supply store witnessed one small step for MHS and one big pounce for feline-kind, as the Michigan Humane Society launched a pilot program for cat and kitten adoptions with the PetSmart at M-59 and Adams in Rochester Hills.
The store will house up to 10 adoptable cats and kittens at a time, many coming directly from MHS temporary foster homes. In addition to reaching more potential adopters, this new venue will help free up foster homes so those volunteers can take in other cats in need of extra TLC before adoption.
MHS adoption counselors will be onsite on Saturdays and Sundays, but adoptions can take place any time during regular store hours, seven days a week. The adoption costs and process will mirror that at MHS’ three adoption centers, and will include the same valuable adoption package. The featured cats and kittens will be pre-sterilized, current on vaccinations and pre-tested for feline leukemia.
And whether you adopt from an MHS adoption center or off-site, the support does not end the day you take your new family member home. MHS checks in with adopters at three post-adoption intervals.
MHS is proud to partner with PetSmart to help more pets find loving homes. This will be especially important during the warmer months from April to October, when shelters everywhere are overflowing with homeless cats and kittens.
Thank you, PetSmart!
