I started out as a donor, after experiencing the sincere dedication of this group, I have become a volunteer. Unlike so many non-profits, all of the work Voiceless does is voluntary, no salaries are paid. Every dollar coming in goes out to help the animals. They run TNR programs for feral cats, low cost spaying/neuter and vaccinations, rescue and adoption programs, work for legislation for animal protection and educational programs.
I couldn't ask for a better more dedicated group of people to be involved with.

I have volunteered, fostered and also adopted from Voiceless-MI. Without a doubt, they are a dedicated, caring and compassionate group of animal advocates, who will always go the extra mile for the animals. They managed their limited funds very conservatively and can make a dollar stretch farther than any non profit I know. Their spay/neuter and TNR programs are making a difference in the number of unwanted and uncared for litters of kittens and puppies in our area. And they work very hard to place dogs (such a pit bull terriers) that no one else wants.

Voiceless-MI (Voiceless in Michigan) is a group of very dedicated animal lovers who want to give a voice to the animals who cannot speak for themselves. As a volunteer, I have come into close contact with a number of animals that other groups either could not or would not take in. Voiceless stepped up and helped. Our latest foster, Lilly, is an older English Mastiff who was turned in at a shelter in Indiana. She was severely underweight, Heartworm positive, and quite a mess. With acceptance into Voiceless as a foster, we drove to Indiana to get her and brought her home. As she got used to her new environment (food, shelter and love), she has become a wonderful and energetic dog, and has added 30 pounds to the skin-and-bones body we rescued. In the 3 months we have fostered her, she has undergone the very expensive Heartworm treatment, a couple rounds of de-worming (Tapeworms - yech!), and will soon be ready to be spayed. Voiceless has graciously picked up the tab to bring this older girl back to full health. (Lilly became such a great part of our family that we've adopted her, giving her a "forever home" to live the rest of her life in peace.) Over the time that we have worked with Voiceless, we have come to know the founders of the group very well. They are very dedicated to the welfare of the animal, and will only adopt to someone who will properly care for the animal. Voiceless will reject an applicant if they are unable to provide the right care for the animal - in other words, Voiceless does everything it can to ensure that the animal being adopted will never again come to any harm. In short, Voiceless is a wonderful organization doing lots of great things with hardly any resources.

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

both fostering and adopting. Having been involved in many rescue groups, Voiceless is one of the best.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure there are more volunteers to foster animals, and give lots of money to help Voiceless do more, especially the low-cost/free spay/neuter programs.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the joy of seeing an animal that was very neglected come back to life and health with help from Voiceless.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the best and most dedicated volunteers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save many more animals who deserve a good life with a loving family.

Ways to make it better...

I had more time to spend with the group.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Money and time.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Voiceless-MI is a wonderful organization that helps so many people with their animals, and helps find homes for pets in need. They are very prompt and continue to reduce the population of unwanted animals by reducing pregnancies of stray & roaming pets.

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

Voiceless-MI has been very successful with helping people with getting their animals spayed or neutered, which is good for our community. Less unwanted animals means more homes for loved and cared for animals.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month
