Reviews for Voiceless-MI
I searched the Internet to find just the right little feline companion and came across Voiceless-MI. I am so happy I did!
Listed on Voiceless-MI as "Tripp", I found a wonderful, cuddly male older (possibly 8 years old?) cat, Siamese (gray-point, short hair). When his foster "mom" found him in January 2016, he was emaciated, bitten, and had a mangled left front arm. Voiceless helped his foster mom & dad get the help Tripp needed right away. He got up to date on his shots, fed well, and had to have his arm amputated. Poor guy!
When I met him at his foster home in March 2016, he approached me right away, and ran around the house like he was very excited! Then, when I sat on the couch, he jumped up behind me and proceeded to make his way down to my chest, where he gladly lay down and purred loudly! He actually nudged my face with his! The more I pet him, the more he nudged and purred! I fell in love instantly! Yep, this was the companion for me. I have mobility issues and pain, so I have many "bad" days and end up at home all day, sometimes for two or three days consecutively. He and I seemed the perfect match!
After meeting "Tripp", which Dawn, the Foster Coordinator at my local Voiceless-MI had set up, I received many more emails and texts from Dawn as to my decision and wrapping up the adoption process. All the constant contact was great.
I was so happy that Dawn delivered Tripp to me because of my mobility issues! And after a few days of he and I getting to know each other, and "Tripp" meeting my adult daughter who visited, I decided to change his name. It has been changed to "Takoda." This is an Apache term for someone they consider to be "The Friend of All." He certainly is!!! Takoda greets everyone that visits, and he LOVES to be held, hugged, petted, and cuddled; he especially likes to be talked to, whispering with loving tones while holding him close is one of his favorites. He even enjoys being held & loved on by children, as you can see by one of my photos below--that little girl is my friend's daughter.
Takoda seems to really need to be touched in order to be happy--I do, too--I've always loved hugs. Since he is a vocal little guy, Takoda lets me know when he needs a cuddle. I have to admit he's very hard to resist, because, well, I love to cuddle too! We're perfect for each other and I couldn't be happier with our match. Thank you Voiceless!!!!
Takoda is pretty smart; he comes when I call him; he knows what "come, come" and "come here", and what "no" means. Takoda even knows what it means when I tap my hand on my leg without me saying come here! If his water bowl is getting low, he vocalizes to let me know. So, I guess I've been trained to check his water bowl in case it's getting low; but usually his vocalizing means he wants a cuddle. Such a cutie!
Everyone I dealt with at Voiceless-MI was caring and wonderful. I highly recommend anything you need pet-wise, go to Voiceless-MI.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Having the microchip truly free when you go to change the account into your own name.
How would you describe the help you got from this organization?
How likely are you to recommend this organization to a friend?
How do you feel you were treated by this organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Was at my wits end trying to figure out how to get my pets their rabies shots as Spectran will not let me bring pets to the veternarian. Voiceless-MI found a solution to the problem for me finding a volunteer, Jan, to take me and our two pets to a vet. Even finding a program to pay for the care as well.

Voiceless came to our rescue when they helped us trap, neuter and spay several feral cats we had been feeding. If it had not been for Voiceless, there would have been another dozen kittens born outside with no home. They are a wonderful organization.
This organization is great! With their help and support, so many animals are helped and saved through their generosity and financial support. Without their help, I would of been unable to afford to get my cats and dogs fixed, which would help them health-wise and help prevent further overpopulation of animals. Their vouchers are a financial lifesaver. Thank you and keep up the fantastic work! Hopefully someday we will fix the overpopulation of unnecessary animals so no animal is put down because of space limits.
We have had them help us spay and neuter our animals and they are amazing I am always telling people about them because they are so helpful specially with the fix a bull program
We are disabled senior citizens that live on a small fixed income. Because we live in the country, people feel it's OK to drop their unwanted cats here. As a result, we have many cats that need to be fed, spayed and neutered. Voiceless helped us out with the last three cats. It has made a tremendous change in the behavior of these cats and the way they interact with the cats we already had. I am very grateful to Voiceless for this help.
Voiceless is great! They help low income families spay and neuter their pets affordably. They also help people deal with the regional feral cat overpopulation problem in a humane way via their Trap-Neuter Release program.
I have donated to voiceless mi for years. This organization has done so much for the rescue animals and feral cats. They are wonderful and caring.
I have believed in Voiceless MI's mission and have been a supporter for a long time. I have a friend, who has very low income and could not afford to get her dog spayed. Thanks to Voiceless MI, they worked with her and she was able to get her sweet dog taken care of. All could not be better for them! I truly believe in this organization and all they accomplish!
If it weren't for voiceless, the feral cats that live around my house quite simply would not have gotten spayed and neutered and there would have been an even worse cat problem. I cannot imagine what would have happened to them and future cats if it weren't for voiceless. Thanks to voiceless, I was able to get all four of the feral cats fixed and they are happily living in the neighborhood! Here's a picture of two of the kittens that were neutered. I was impressed by the prompt and friendly interactions with the voiceless staff. It was a great experience and now I tell anyone with outside cats about the group.
Feral cats started showing up on my back porch and I found out about Voiceless Mi. When I contacted them for help to trap/spay and neuter they were very helpful. This pic is one of my senior ferals that over the years came to trust us. I am very grateful for their help.
