I grew up in Detroit and now live in a near suburb, and I have been familiar with MHS my whole life. I have always known and respected MHS for its untiring work in support of its mission to help animals and people in our community. I have adopted several animals from MHS, and I have been a long-time donor. I was also on staff from 2008-2010. Although I returned to my prior employer for professional reasons, I continue to be involved with MHS as a volunteer. To be honest, before I started working at MHS, I was afraid that working there would be like visiting the kitchen in your favorite restaurant - I might not like what I saw from the inside. It turns out my fears were completely baseless. Based on what I learned through my first-hand experiences with the organization, I know that MHS consists of the most dedicated, selfless, talented, and professional animal welfare people I have met anywhere. I have never known anyone in the organization to engage in bashing another animal welfare group, which I see as grossly unprofessional and a complete waste of time. They keep their eyes on the mission and goal of helping as many animals as possible. To a person and as an organization, they face tremendous challenges with creativity, grace under pressure, and fortitutde. They are constantly challenging themselves and others to do what's best for animals and people. MHS is a leader and an innovator. They have earned my undying support.

For over a decade I have been a donor to MHS. I have also adopted from MHS and am a veterinary client of MHS. As a donor I have every confidence that my donations are used fully in support of an extraordinary and complex mission. I see more community outreach, animal adoptions, preventive care, and family assistance from MHS than any other organization. I know my contributions are having significant impact every day and I trust in the expertise of the MHS staff based on my experience as an adopter and veterinary client. Great job MHS!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

saving animal lives and showing leadership and innovation.

What specific problem, purpose, priority, or project prompted your gift?

Animal cruelty and abandonment.

Why did you make your donation at this time?

Significant need for animals and families in Detroit. I want to help animals in need and feel that MHS is committed to providing service in a very challenging city that is trying to reinvent itself.

What would you tell others about this organization?

Humans will never be perfect and therefore, organizations will never be perfect. I imagine providing animal welfare and rescue services is far more complex than it seems. My confidence in MHS staff and their delivery of meaningful programs has kept me engaged for over a decade and I am more committed today than ever.
