There's one name no animal deserves...


April 22, 2015

The streets can be a sad, lonely place for cats, dogs, kittens and puppies without homes.

Hunger gnaws at empty bellies. No soothing voice or gentle hand offers comfort. Fear becomes a way of life. Fortunately, with help from friends like you, the Michigan Humane Society offers a safe haven and medical care for homeless animals. But what these animals really need is a loving home they can call their own.

Dante was found on the streets severely matted and malnourished. Our evaluation team immediately got to work shaving off the painful mats. The little dog was patient as they worked away, his tail wagging more and more with each stroke of the clippers. When they were finally finished, they determined the pile of fur that had been covering Dante weighed two pounds. After vaccinations and a special diet, Dante’s loving personality came shining through. It didn’t take long before he was warm and safe with a new family.

Kicia was surrendered to MHS with a severely injured eye. We’re not sure how this kitty sustained her injury, but our veterinarians determined that in order for her to be happy and healthy, her eye would need to be removed. After a successful surgery, Kicia needed time to recover and plenty of TLC. Now she’s happy and healthy in her forever home.

But not every cat and dog finds a home so easily. After they arrive here at MHS, we still have the challenge of finding just the right family to give them a forever home.

Times are tough and our costs to care for these cats and dogs have been rising steadily. That’s why your support today is so critical — MHS depends on friends like you to help cover these expenses until we can find them homes.

While we do all we can to help these vulnerable animals, at times their needs can be overwhelming.

Could you find it in your heart to give whatever you can afford today to help us treat and find loving homes for vulnerable animals? To put your gift to work, donate online at

Your kind gift will help provide shelter and medical care — and will even support spaying and neutering to reduce the number of unwanted cats and dogs.

On behalf of the animals, thank you for your friendship and support!

For the animals,

Matthew Pepper
President and CEO
