DETROIT – To celebrate the Detroit Tigers’ home opener this weekend, Detroit Animal Care and Control is waiving all adoption fees for adoptable pets through Monday.

The animal shelter, located on Chrysler Drive near East Grand Boulevard, is hosting a free adoption event Thursday through Monday, April 11. All adoptions fees will be waived for adoptable dogs and cats, and the animals are fully vaccinated, microchipped and neutered, officials said.

Detroit Animal Care and Control is open from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“We are celebrating Opening Day and Kitten Season,” said Mark Kumpf, Director of Animal Care. “April is traditionally when we experience a higher volume intake of kittens. We obtained a state-of-the-art incubator to give our youngest kitties a good chance to survive in a shelter and give our team time to locate a foster who is willing to bottle feed. When given an opportunity to save more lives, we always choose to do so.”

Pets available for adoption are frequently shared on the Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control’s Facebook page right here.
