Nonprofit Overview

Mission: Voiceless-MI is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit and State of Michigan non-profit established in August 2009 . We work to create change for companion animals by caring for those in need through our foster-care system, helping to reduce the unwanted pet population with spay/neuter programs, and supporting efforts and initiatives that benefit the protection of animals. We advocate abolishing pound seizure and are against animal cruelty. Voiceless-MI supports humane education programs for the public and encourages respect and compassion for all animals. We strive to be the voice for the voiceless.

Direct beneficiaries per year: to fix over 1,100 dogs/cats for Michiganders

I learned about Voiceless-MI through Cat Rescue. I connected with Jan Lifsey and she explained how the TNR program works. After my dog died I began noticing numerous feral cats in and around my yard. I had no idea that Voiceless-MI even existed. I signed up to participate and have had three cats neutered to date. I am working on trapping and neutering four more. I think this is a wonderful program and plan to become a regular donator as well as continue to participate. I was always a dog person but have now become a cat lover as well

I have a colony of feral cats that I have trapped had neutered and spayed , ear trimmed and now they live in my back yard and the woods behind me. I feed them twice a day and provide shelters in winter. I have gotten so much helpful information from the voiceless group. Also, they helped me get a new feral cat neutered. He came around causing trouble with the original feral group. By helping me with the TNR effort the neighborhood is a lot quieter and one more cat is not able to reproduce. The people that work for this organization are generous with their knowledge on feral TNR. They truly care about minimizing animal suffering. I appreciate all the advice and help I have received from them.

Voiceless is amazing!! I have 10 kitty's that just ended up in my pole barn within a 6 month period. Voiceless neutered all of these sweet little delights. They came to my home trapped and delivered the kitties for surgery and then brought them back home. The population in this country corner is now at a minimum. Thank you so much Voiceless of Michigan!!!

This is a great organization for the community. Their help with spaying and neutering feral cats was a lifesaver for a local farmer. I will continue to fight the overpopulation of cats with the help of this great organization.

A voiceless volunteer gave us advise and a special trap when we had a feral mother cat and her four kittens show up at our house in a country location. When the kittens were safely trapped (as soon as they were able to eat on their own) and taken to a proper shelter we trapped the mother and through the program she was spayed at no charge. Jan the volunteer helped us with any questions we had along the way. The mother cat now spayed is returned to our home area where we leave food out for her each morning. She is still feral and does not come close to us but has a chance to live out her life in the countryside without producing hundreds of offspring.

I needed a drop-trap and some expertise and direction. Holly Thoms provided all of that and more. Due to circumstances beyond my control, it took much longer for a successful trap than it should've , but Holly was very patient and understanding. From my experience, Voiceless-Mi. is an organization of major value and importance and should be supported any way possible.

I had wanted to trap and neuter a feral male cat from my neighborhood. He had fought with a racoon, so was missing hair in spots and had a wound and swelling on his leg. Two neighbors wanted to shoot him. I rented a trap (I didn't know that I could have borrowed one free from Voiceless!) but had failed to get him. Worried, I drove to the spay and neuter clinic to show them photos of his injuries. I was told to contact Voiceless. The videos and lengthy encouragement from this great organization stopped me from giving up on him. I pestered them often with emails and offered my frustrations. I got kindness and tips in return. Finally, he was trapped, treated, neutered, and put into my cattery cage, which was a foreign environment for him. Since his release, he has returned several times to eat and even to sit on my porch! Although it may be years, if ever, before I can pet him, he knows where and when there is food out for him, and this morning he watched me clean the barn. I plan to give him a special shelter for winter. Instead of pain and helplessness, he has a future, thanks to Voiceless! I highly recommend them!!!

There were 4 nursing mothers, one of them so protective of her litter that no human contact has been made yet. The other 3 mothers shared nursing duties and half of their kittens have already been adopted. One of theirs' was put up for adoption by Humane Society making it easier to spay 3 of the mothers (one of which was pregnant again.) The first cat neutered was an abandoned cat who has since been adopted along with a kitten. Just neutered one of the four remaining tom cats and hoping to have last nursing mother spayed as she is now pregnant again. Voiceless loaned me a trap and a medium sized dog crate. They gave vouchers for the 8 that have been neutered and spayed. They always responded promptly to emails and offered advice. Their videos about TNR are very helpful and the suggestion of a chart to show all cats to be spayed and neutered, keeping it organized was helpful.

I've needed to get my dog spayed for a long time now. Voiceless MI helped me out and I am so relieved. The people at the humane society were kind and helpful. I highly recommend both organizations.

Voiceless-MI is a very ethical organization, and they place the highest importance on the fur babies in their care. I would rate an infinite number of stars. I was honored to be able to adopt the most precious special needs kitten named Lexy. Lexy and I are a purrfect match. Thank you so much Voiceless-MI.
