Then help arrived in the form of the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, other law enforcement agencies and MHS’ Cruelty Investigation and Emergency Rescue teams. MHS immediately began providing them with much-needed care. Many different types of animals were seized, including puppies, guinea pigs, frogs, snakes, birds, chinchillas and more.
Now, we need your support to feed the hungry, treat the ill and care for each animal until we find them a loving home.
Exotic animals like many of those rescued from the pet store have unique needs, requiring strict care, diet and grooming regimens. Once the animals were relocated to the Michigan Humane Society, the difficult work of assessing each animal’s medical needs began.
Incredibly, despite their ordeal, many of these animals have endured, and are today healing, recuperating and receiving daily attention from MHS shelter staff and our veterinary team. Having suffered such neglect, an extraordinary amount of behind-the-scenes work has gone into caring for these animals and nursing them back to health. But more needs to be done.
The costs of care for these animals can run into the hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
Your support is crucial to helping provide these animals with a second chance.
MHS’ Cruelty Investigators will continue to work with the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office to help ensure the pet store’s owner is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
Feeding, cleaning, exercising, socializing and treating these animals’ medical conditions will all take significant resources. Please, donate today.
Thanks again for all you make possible.
For the Animals,
Chief Cruelty Investigator

Over 200 animals removed from a pet store are now in our care.
“It was heartbreaking to see so many animals in deplorable conditions.”
