"Show some love to a local animal shelter or rescue group"
In honor of National Shelter Animal Appreciation Week (sponsored by the Humane Society of The United States), we have pulled out a guest blog that was written by volunteer Cristin Hipke of The Abandoned Animal Rescue of Michigan (AARM) on September 10, 2010. We have chosen to honor Cristin and the countless shelter volunteers who work tirelessly in their quest to save the lives of abandoned pets and selflessly help them to find their "forever homes."
To Cristin and EVERYONE who volunteers in the name of the animals, we say THANK YOU!

Abandoned Animal Rescue of Michigan (AARM) is a no-kill pet haven that has been operating throughout the greater Detroit metro area since 2004. AARM is an affiliate of Guardians For Animals (GFA). Our founder is very proud of this affiliation and always points out that "we are all doing the same work and are in this together."
Our mission is to help homeless or abandoned animals by giving them medical care, a safe place to rest their weary heads while enjoying good meals, and a chance to finally find the warmth of loving companionship. Our rescue efforts focus primarily on cats and dogs. A selection of our cats that are available for adoption are in the Canton, MI Petco.
AARM has many vital volunteer positions open, from hardworking cage cleaner, adoption event volunteer, dog walker, or foster home, to communication and fundraising positions. AARM also accepts donations, which can be left with cashiers at the Canton, MI Petco.
