Fueling MHS efforts to End Animal Cruelty
For nearly 100 years, local animals suffering abuse and neglect have shared a source of hope in the Michigan Humane Society’s cruelty investigators. Each year, this small team responds to more than 5,000 cases of animal cruelty and neglect in Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park. Their unique role is equal parts educator, detective and crusader. They work tirelessly to rescue animals from abusive and neglectful situations while also protecting these at-risk animals to ensure they continue receiving proper care. In the field of cruelty investigation, walking into the unknown is an everyday reality and it is imperative that these trained professionals have the proper equipment to best serve the animals’ safety and wellbeing as well as their own. Whether rescuing an animal from a dangerous situation or dealing with unpredictable animals, and their often more unpredictable owners, these individuals put their personal well-being on the line.
MHS and its animal cruelty investigations team is in great need of a new and specifically customized vehicle to make this lifesaving and critical work possible.
Goal: $70,000 is the cost for a new and customized Chevrolet Suburban that will be outfitted specific to the animal welfare needs of MHS’ Animal Cruelty Investigators.
