Kaitlin from the Humane Society of West Michigan wasn't able to come into the studio this morning due, of course, to the COVID-19, but talked on the phone with me about Tia!

We're not going to sugarcoat it, Tia is 12 years old, and a bit of a medical mess, but this pretty girl still deserves a loving home to retire to and enjoy her golden years! Our staff has gone above and beyond helping tiny Tina to feel her best. This little lady has diabetes, so staff has been giving her regular insulin injections, and she's also blind and missing a few teeth--but you'd never know from her spunky personality! It's like Tia missed the memo that she's an old lady and is supposed to be winding down, this silly girl has a BIG personality, and loves to bark and hop around when she plays! She's currently living it up in her foster home with four cats and two dogs, and her foster mom says that once she trusts you, she's a very snuggly girl.

If you're interested in giving this little old lady the love and care that she needs, please visit our website at www.hswestmi.org

Animal Care Artists

We’re putting the ‘FUN’ back in fundraiser!

For a limited time, we’re giving people the opportunity to have a custom portrait of their pet created by a member of our staff or volunteer team. At HSWM we are known for taking great care of animals, but not as well known for our artistic skills! Every portrait will be one of a kind, and good or bad, they’re sure to make you smile!

For more information and to sign up, check out the upcoming events section at hswestmi.org/events!

Kibble Konnection Support

This community is truly AMAZING!!

Last week we asked you to donate pet food to our Kibble Konnection program which helps support pantries and families in need in the West Michigan area--and you all IMMEDIATELY answered the call! Over the past week, we have received enough food to PACK our shelves full, and we've even had to get creative on how to store the overflow!

We are genuinely so grateful for your generosity, thank you so SO much for supporting pets and families in need in your community!
