Megan from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio yesterday morning due to COVID-19, but we talked on the phone about Benny Button!

Long-term cat, Benny Button, has been lingering in our care for over four months, and we have no idea why no one has scooped up this creamsicle-colored cutie yet! Poor Benny was part of a large-scale rescue, and as a result, came to us with a lot of medical issues. Her foster mom has been supporting her through them, and she's starting to feel a bit better, but while she's enjoying her time in her foster home, this little lady deserves a family to call her own!

Benny Button is a 1-year-old sweetheart and is as CUTE as a button! Her quirky personality mixed with her love for attention makes her the perfect companion. She is shy at first and will need time to get to know you, but once she warms up, she is affectionate and loves to play! She will often greet her foster mom when she comes home with a meow to tell her that she'd like some pets, please!

If you're interested in adopting this pretty kitty, visit our website at hswestmi.org, or contact our adoptions department at adoptions@hswestmi.org!

Spring Equipment Fundraiser

We'd like to thank everyone who donated to our Spring Equipment Fundraiser last week!

In just FIVE days, we were able to raise $2,500, which will cover much of the costs of the equipment we need. We've already had volunteers sign up to help us with our park projects over the next month, and our staff and our pups can't wait to see everything looking clean, neat, and tidy! We were only able to do this with YOUR help and support--so thank you again so much to those of you who gave to make HSWM better than ever for the pets in our care!

Are you or your organization interested in volunteering to help with our spring cleaning? Visit our website today to learn more at https://www.hswestmi.org/group-volunteer.html
