DEARBORN — The Dearborn Animal Shelter cares for nearly 2,500 homeless animals that pass through its doors each year. The Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter’s Hope’s Heroes program is a fund dedicated for animals that require an extreme level of care. On July 21st, Councilman Robert Abraham and his family are hosting a fundraiser evening in memory of their beloved Labrador Retriever, Dublin, who was killed in a house fire in 2009. Abraham, his wife Mary Ann, daughter Mary Kate, and sons Brandon and Jared were not home at the time of the fire but felt the tremendous loss of their family pet. To help find a way to honor Dublin, the Abrahams chose to support the Dearborn Animal Shelter with proceeds benefiting the special Hope’s Heroes fund.

The public is invited to attend the open house, which will be held on Saturday, July 21st 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 and live entertainment.
“In the past six months, we have cared for more than the average number of animals coming through our doors with special needs,” says Elaine Greene, Executive Director, Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter. “These included a kitten and a young dog that both needed amputations, animals that were given a second chance at life because of the support of donors to our Hope’s Heroes fund”.
Reservations to attend are requested by July 17th via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Contributions of $50 per person are suggested; with all donations welcome.
