‘Dog Days of Summer’ Adoptions All Weekend Long in Detroit

Dave 4 Y/O Neutered Male


Detroit Health Department Animal Care is holding a ‘Dog Days of Summer’ adoption event that runs all weekend through Sunday afternoon.

The event is being held to find forever homes for the many dogs who are in need of loving new families, according to a city press release. There are no adoption fees. All dogs are fully vaccinated, sterilized and microchipped. They come with a goody bag, a starter supply of food, treats and a toy.

All dogs have been handled by staff to ensure they are home-ready. Staff will be on-site all weekend to provide ‘adoptive parents’ with instruction about decompression for the animals and provide tips on ensuring the match is a success with a slow introduction to the dog’s new home and two-legged family.

Dogs like Dave (pictured) is a four-year old male with a tail that does not stop wagging. Dave loves chew toys and getting out and around, walks well on a leash. He wants to cuddle. A home with older kids would be perfect for Dave. He’s an ‘only child’ at heart, and would love to be in a home with no small pets.

  • Saturday, July 31st – 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, August 1st – 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
