Homeless animals to hit the market — Eastern Market — July 22
Michigan Humane Society rebranding event after popular Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo
WHO: The Michigan Humane Society will showcase 50 adoptable cats, kittens, dogs and puppies for thousands of Eastern Market shoppers.
WHAT: Join the Michigan Humane Society for Meet Your Best Friend at the Market, presented by Purina. This event is concurrent with Eastern Market’s Music Festival.
WHEN: Sunday, July 22, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
WHERE: In front of Eastern Market’s Shed 5, Russell Street, Detroit, MI 48207
WHY: The Michigan Humane Society believes pets are family. That is why it hosts adoption events at popular family attractions. Now in its fifth year, this partnership joins two of Detroit’s venerable institutions with a combined history spanning almost 270 years. It also marks the first time this event will be branded as Meet Your Best Friend at the Market.
Summer is also a great time to adopt an animal. The reason is families often have more time to train and socialize new pets. It is also easier to house train a puppy when it’s warm. This is because, like us, pets often don’t want to go outside during Michigan’s cold winters.
HOW: Meet Your Best Friend at the Market is presented by Purina. Additional support is generously provided by Sellers Subaru.
