Detroit Animal Care is starting the new year with an amnesty program that will allow a lot of four-legged friends the opportunity to find their eternal home.

Animal control allows all owners of stray microchips to have their pets delivered to their homes free of charge, waiving fees and violations. The center also waives adoption and licensing fees as part of the program.

Mark Kumpf, director of Animal Care & Control for the Detroit Health Department, said in a press release that Detroit Animal Care hopes to find eternal homes for their adoptive pets.

“Our message to the Detroiters is, ‘Come get your pets!’ We have many deserving dogs and cats waiting to find their Furever home, so we waive all adoption and licensing fees throughout the New Year holiday, Kumpf said in a press release.

The Detroit Animal Care Amnesty Program takes place from 6 p.m. 12.00-14.30 Friday, December 31, 2021 through Tuesday, January 4, 2022. The adoptions will take place at Detroit Animal Care, 7401 Chrysler Drive, Detroit.

All adoptable dogs are neutered and come equipped with collars, leashes and some supplies. Both cats and dogs are microchipped and have received their first set of vaccinations, including rabies.
