(Ann Arbor, MI) — The Humane Society of Huron Valley’s (HSHV) homeless cats have literally turned into Tigers — not the large wild cats seen in Africa, rather the famous boys of summer — the Detroit Tigers!

"We are very excited to partner with the Detroit Tigers to promote the adoption of hundreds of cats in our community that need caring homes," said Deb Kern, Humane Society of Huron Valley Marketing Director. "This promotion is a celebration of our beloved team, the Tigers, who are once again in the run for the pennant, and it is also an awareness campaign about cat overpopulation and the number of homeless cats in Michigan."

The adoption fee of adult cats during the entire month of July will be directly tied to the team’s performance on the field. The adoption fee for any adult cat over the age of 6 months old will equal the total number of runs scored by the Detroit Tigers during the game played the previous day.

"Not only will people be saving a life and getting a wonderful feline companion," said Kern. "They will also be entered into a drawing to win Detroit Tigers tickets with the grand prize drawing including the chance to watch batting practice from the field at Comerica Park."

All cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and come with a microchip I.D. No purchase of a pet is necessary to be entered into the drawing. The winners will be announced on August 1, 2011.

It is estimated that 100,000 cats will enter animal shelters across Michigan this year alone. Help make these kitties winners—make adoption your first option and visit the Humane Society of Huron Valley any day, between noon and 6 pm.

The Humane Society of Huron Valley, located in Ann Arbor, was recently awarded the ‘Best Large Animal Shelter in Michigan" by the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance for saving the most lives. HSHV is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and relies solely on donations from businesses and individuals to support our community programs. The mission of HSHV is to promote responsible and compassionate care of all animals in our community. For more information, call (734) 662-5585 or visit www.hshv.org.
