Cat adoption event set for this weekend
That’s the rule this weekend during a cat adoption
festival on the campus of Cranbrook Institute of
Science, where more than 500 felines from eight rescue
groups will be available.
“This has never been done on this scale, to our
knowledge,” said Suzy Fucini, spokeswoman for the
Michigan Animal Adoption Network, one of the
Cats and kittens will be displayed under tents on the
Cranbrook campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday. Adopters will pay $100 for each cat or kitten
Cat supplies will be available for purchase at the site.
All animals will be up to date on vaccinations and — if
they’re old enough — already neutered or spayed.
Fucini said the event was inspired in part by the
successful “Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo” animal
adoption events of the past 10 years. Dog adoptions
often dominate that event.
Cranbrook is located at 39221 Woodward Ave., between
Lone Pine and Long Lake roads.
