Tens of thousands of homeless animals find their way to area animal shelters and rescue groups every single year, and not enough of them find forever homes. That’s why the Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is partnering with Meijer and Purina ONE to raise awareness of the number of homeless pets in our community, and to help more of them find loving homes. As part of this partnership, Meijer and Purina ONE are sponsors and key participants in the


adoption event

 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sept. 22 and 23

at the Detroit Zoo

 Royal Oak, Michigan

The partnership will assist pet owners in every phase of pet ownership – from adopting a pet at the Michigan Humane Society to keeping your new family member healthy and happy by purchasing Purina ONE food and other pet-related items at Meijer. Meijer and Purina ONE will also provide every dog and cat adopter from MHS with valuable moneysaving coupons including free pet food, cat litter, photo prints, and huge savings on other pet supplies.
