DETROIT -

The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) will hold a Protect-A-Pet clinic in Detroit this Saturday.

The outdoor clinics will provide low-cost vaccinations and microchipping for healthy dogs and cats over 6 weeks of age.  No proof of low-income is required, and there are no residency restrictions.
