Have a heart and be a homeless pet's valentine this year

The Michigan Humane Society invites all animal lovers to "Share the Love" this Valentine's Day by supporting the thousands of homeless, abused and neglected animals throughout several communities.

Gather your sweetheart and furry family members and tune in to WXYZ-TV Channel 7 for the 14th annual MHS Telethon - the year's most awww-inspiring TV programming! The 2010 Valentine’s Telethon will air Thursday, February 11 in short segments during commercial breaks from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.

“The Valentine’s Telethon raises critical funds for the Michigan Humane Society, and even more so during these challenging economic times which have increased the need for MHS’ lifesaving services,” said Cal Morgan, president and CEO for the Michigan Humane Society. “We are grateful for the generous community support which directly translates into our ability to transform animal lives.”

Although the animals who arrive at the Michigan Humane Society need different levels of care, the average cost to change the life of one animal in need is $120. One-time or monthly donations of any amount will make a difference for animals in need of shelter, care and loving homes.

The MHS Telethon will feature adoptable animals,  and include heartwarming animal rescue stories, along with information on the Michigan Humane Society’s programs and services which help to make an important impact on the thousands of animals within the state.

MHS 2010 Valentine’s Telethon donations can be made online at the Michigan Humane Society Telethon on or before Thursday, February 11, or by calling 1-866-MHUMANE on February 11, from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.
