Slumber Party!

  • Detroit Animal Care and Control 7401 Chrysler Drive Detroit, MI 48211 United States (map)

Our most popular event is back!

Change a shelter dog or cat's life in just one night through this innovative program.

Shelter life is stressful. Getting a good night's sleep in a real bed in a real home lowers stress levels and increases a dog or cat's likelihood of finding a forever home.

When you participate in our Slumber Party program, you'll give a pet the best night of his life (and help us learn more about his personality outside of the shelter). Come in anytime between 11-3 on Saturday, March 30 to pick out your overnight guest, and bring him back to the shelter the next day. It's that easy!

All pets will be sent with dinner and breakfast, a toy, a leash/collar or carrier, and information on setting the pet up for success.

We can't wait to meet you!

"Can we participate if we have other pets at home?"

"Should we bring our dog up to the shelter to meet our Slumber Party guest?"
No. The shelter is a stressful place, and how the dogs interact there is often not indicative of how they will do together at home. We are super happy to talk you through doing successful introductions at home.

"Are animals fully vetted?"
All animals will be up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. Some animals may not be sterilized yet.

"Can we keep the dog for longer than one night?"
Definitely! We will have an adoption event the week after the Slumber Party- fostering an animal until the event drastically improves the animal's chance of adoption.

"Are there any fees involved?"
While we are always happy to accept donations, there is absolutely no fee for participating in the Slumber Party.
