Pet of the Week

Let Northstar shine bright
Northstar is a 2- to 3-year-old gray American shorthair male cat at the Allen Park Animal Shelter, 16850 Southfield Road. He is very affectionate and probably was someone’s pet at one time. He was found in Allen Park, and has been at the shelter since Jan. 12. The shelter is housed in the back of a large blue building east of the City Hall parking lot. Shelter hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday and noon to 3 p.m. Tuesday. Cat adoptions are $45, which includes a $15 adoption fee and a $30 spay/neuter deposit. Adopters receive a discount certificate for post-adoption veterinary care at Dix Animal Hospital, 1127 Dix in Lincoln Park. For more information call the shelter at (313) 382-6173 or go to
