ANN ARBOR – The Humane Society of Huron Valley is currently offering adoption specials in honor of Pride Month to “increase the love in the community,” according to a release.

Adult cats and dogs are 50% off, kittens are adopt-one-get-one-free and small mammals are free of charge -- while “supplies” last.

“Companion animals bring so much love,” HSHV’s Adoption Manager Alison Balow said in a statement. “And they’re deserving of loving homes. We know people are feeling a pinch in their pocketbooks right now. So we’re hoping these adoption specials will make a bunch of people—and pets—very happy.”

Balow said that while some may worry that discounted and free adoptions could attract the wrong people, the organization adheres to its adoption policies regardless of the cost involved.

“We always discuss the real costs of caring for a companion animal with potential adopters,” Balow said in a release. “And the research on waiving adoption fees is very clear. People who get free adoptions value their companion animal the same way people who pay do, and care for them just as much, too.

“This is what we’ve seen with our ‘seniors-adopt-seniors-free’ program, too. Because, really, it’s the match, not the starter money, that matters, and we try our best to help people find the pets who will best fit their family and lifestyle.”

All of HSHV’s adoptable dogs and cats are spayed and neutered, have received age-appropriate vaccinations and a health screening and come with a microchip ID.

No appointments are needed and HSHV’s adoption department is open every day of the week.

Hours:

  • Monday-Wednesday: 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Thursday, Friday: 11 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Saturday, Sunday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
