(CBS DETROIT) – The Detroit Animal Care and Control shelter is trying to find new homes for the dogs up for adoption as the transition to a new facility begins.

Special adoption events are being held throughout the month of May to try to clear the shelter on Chrysler Drive, just south of Clay Street.

“We can’t just move the equipment here because the dogs here need it. But it has to be moved to the new facility. So what we’re trying to do is give these dogs a loving home so we can get everything.” move and start over in the new facility,” said Crystal Perkins, Director of General Services for the City of Detroit.

Perkins said it will take two to three weeks to move into the new home at Russell and Ferry streets.

‘It will be a lot better for the animals. Just in a cleaner environment, the air quality there will be better. Hopefully whatever upper respiratory infections they get here in this, you know, older building will win’ won’t be a problem there. Every room there has its own individual air filtration system,” said Sue Valentine, animal shelter assistant.

To adopt one of the more than 100 available dogs, you must be at least 18 years old, have a valid ID and undergo an adoption interview.
