What’s better than getting Grubhub or Amazon deliveries to your door? How about a dog or a cat thanks to the Michigan Humane Society’s Santa Paws promotion? Obviously.

The Michigan Humane Society believes that the love, joy, and comfort a companion animal brings is something no one should be without. To that end, we want to make the adoption experience even more memorable for several metro Detroit families by offering Christmas morning delivery. All pets will be delivered by a cheery group of MHS volunteers who are ‘Santa’s Helpers’ for the day.

Check out the full details below.
