The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) has announced that its new, state-of-the-art animal care campus in Detroit will be named the Dresner Foundation Animal Care Campus after receiving a $3.5 million signature gift from the Dresner Foundation.
“We are grateful for the continued commitment of the Dresner Foundation towards making the city of Detroit a healthy pet community, and one that will become a model for animal welfare nationwide, said Matt Pepper, MHS President and CEO. “The Michigan Humane Society’s Dresner Foundation Animal Care Campus will ensure that the animals in our community receive the highest quality care for generations to come.”
The MHS Dresner Foundation Animal Care Campus offers progressive animal care and housing, an expanded veterinary center, which is open to the public, a new home for the MHS Cruelty Investigation and Rescue Department, dedicated canine and feline rehabilitation areas and secure and spacious shelter dog play yards.
“This leading-edge facility will not only ensure the highest quality of care for animals, but will also serve as a catalyst for neighborhood revitalization and economic development,” said Kevin Furlong, Dresner Foundation CEO.
The campus officially opened its doors to the public on March 14, 2016.
The Dresner Foundation is dedicated to transforming lives in profoundly positive ways through grants focused on health, youth and animal welfare.
