Funds Raised by Michigan Humane Society Valentine's Telethon

A young puppy found its way to the doors of the Michigan Humane Society Berman Center for Animal Care in Westland this current winter season. Her body covered in bite marks and a very deep, painful wound on her stomach, she had been wandering around the streets for quite sometimes.

The Michigan Humane Society staff took this three month old Boxer mix in and named her Alice. Her injured showed she had been used to bait dog for dog fighting, a sport that sick and twisted criminals are still finding a way to get away with. she underwent emergency care and was put in foster care to recover. This sweet innocent girl will be placed in her forever home soon thanks to the people at the Michigan Humane Society.

Every year the Michigan Humane Society holds a Valentine's Telethon to raise funds to care for animals like Alice. this year the telethon was held all day on February 11th on WXYZ, Channel 7 and it was a great success. Enough support was raised to provide care for another 2,700 animals.

The Michigan Humane Society receives no state or federal funding and relies on donations like this to critically save the lives of over 100,000 abused, neglected and homeless animals every year here in Southeast Michigan. It takes an average of $120 to transform the life of one animal in need depending on the level of care required.

The Michigan Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization that works to end animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted in their care and are a key leader in promoting humane values.

To make a donation to the Michigan Humane Society please visit their website here or call 1-866-HUMANE, Monday through Friday from 8am - 5pm.
