Amy from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio this morning due, of course, to the Coronavirus, but talked on the phone with me about Diego and his brother Finn for Wet Nose Wednesday.

Meet Diego! He's a sweet, loveable boy looking for an adopter to adventure with. Diego is bonded to his brother, Finn, and they will need to find a home to go to together. They enjoy going for walks and spending time with their people.

Diego and Finn will be available this week as part of Empty the Shelters! To learn more about how you can meet him please visit

Join us for the 8th Annual Bark in the Dark! We know 2020 has brought a lot of changes, including to this year's event. But don't worry - this event will still bring lots of fun, in-person and virtual opportunities, and support for a great mission that needs you!
The Bark in the Dark event festivities will begin on Saturday, October 3rd with an in-person kickoff at HSWM. This event will be an opportunity for you to pick up your wag bag, visit fun sponsor booths, sign up to walk or run in our Dog Day Out program, and even meet some adoptable dogs!

The week following the kickoff there will be fun daily themes, voting for the pet costume contest, virtual check-ins, and tons of excitement. Each participant will have the opportunity to pledge to walk the distance of their choice and fundraise from their network to support their efforts and the animals at HSWM!

Tickets: $35 for adults, $15 for ages 5-21, and kids under 5 are free. Ticket prices include a wag bag filled with goodies for you and your furry friend from our generous sponsors, a limited edition Bark in the Dark t-shirt, and (for the over 21 crowd) two beverages to take home and enjoy throughout the week!
