Have A Heart: Support the Michigan Humane Society Valentine's Telethon On Thursday, February 12th

‘SHARE THE LOVE’

MHS asks for community’s support
 to save thousands of animal lives this year
In this season of caring, show your love to homeless animals by supporting the Michigan Humane Society’s (MHS) 2015 Valentine’s Telethon, presented by Purina. WXYZ-TV Channel 7 Action News anchor Alicia Smith will host the Telethon, which will air in commercial breaks throughout the day on Thursday, Feb. 12, from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Funds raised by the Telethon are critical to helping MHS rescue and care for thousands of animals in great need.

From Cody: Last year my Mom worked a telethon for Michigan Humane and  so many of the kind people she met on the phone brought tears to her eyes!

“The Michigan Humane Society has numerous programs that are absolutely vital to the animals and pet owners in our community,” said CJ Bentley, Senior Director of Operations for MHS. “But without the community’s crucial support, we cannot help those who need us most. On February 12, please share the love and help us save animal lives throughout the year.”

The 19th annual MHS Telethon will feature adoptable pets and stories that show how your support can make a lifesaving difference for area animals who are homeless, abused or neglected.  As a private, nonprofit organization, MHS receives no government funding and is not affiliated with any national humane organizations, relying instead on the generosity of its supporters to save more animal lives.
 
Lifesaving donations can be made on or before Feb. 12, online at www.michiganhumane.org/telethon or by calling 
(855) MHS-GIVE (647-4483), 24 hours a day
 
In addition to Purina, sponsors of this year’s Telethon include PetSafe, US-Mattress.com, Wendy’s-The O’Brien Foundation, Premier Pet Supply, Center for Computer Resources, Strategic Staffing Solutions, Bravecto, Heidebreicht Chevrolet and Grid4 Communications.

The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.
