DEARBORN, Michigan – The Dearborn Animal Shelter helps care for thousands of rescued animals annually, as they prepare to become adoptable pet family members.
Sometimes animals with severe injuries or special needs arrive at the Shelter and require extra resources. The organization’s Hope’s Heroes program is designed specifically to help care for these animals that require extraordinary measures to spare their lives and give them a second chance.
Dearborn City Councilman Robert Abraham and Family Host July 20th Event
This year, the fund will receive extra assistance courtesy of Councilman Robert Abraham and his family. Their third annual Open House on Saturday, July 20th benefits the Dearborn Animal Shelter’s Hope’s Heroes program and is open for all to attend. The evening is in memory of their beloved Labrador Retriever, Dublin, who was tragically killed in a house fire that ravaged their home in 2009.
“This celebration is a way for our family to honor Dublin and simultaneously help the Dearborn Animal Shelter, which benefits so many in our community,” commented Councilman Abraham. The event this year is also made possible with the support of two sponsors, Donelson Law Group and Paramount Accounting & Tax Service.
The public is invited to attend the open house which will be held on Saturday, July 20th from 5 P.M. to 9 P.M. at the family’s home located at 510 Crescent Drive in Dearborn. Dinner and refreshments will be served along with live entertainment.
“A few months ago, the Shelter received a Chihuahua with a birth defect that left her with two severely deformed front legs. Much needed prosthetics were made possible by the Hope’s Heroes fund, said Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter. This program makes it possible for this sort of care to be given to an individual animal.”
Contributions of $50 per person are suggested; with all donations welcome. If unable to attend, donations can also be made online.
The Dearborn Animal Shelter is located at 2661 Greenfield Road, Dearborn, and is operated by the Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
