They made it easy to pair us up with a cat that has blended well with our family.

I became aware of a situation involving a significant number of stray cats at a rental property that I own. I was out of ideas when somebody suggested that I get in touch with Voiceless. Not only did Voiceless offer a significant amount of education about Trap-Neuter-Release, they also loaned me traps and provided the neuter/spay certificates at Capital Area Humane Society.

The first night that I set the traps, I caught six cats. I took them in to get fixed the next morning, allw ent smoothly there. Where Voiceless truly went above and beyond was in housing some of the cats for a few days while I tried to trap the last few cats that were wandering around at my rental. This allowed me to avoid re-trapping any cats, and get the last three that we had seen.

Unfortunately, over the summer, we discovered just exactly why so many stray cats had been in this neighborhood. Voiceless-MI even offered quite a bit of advice in how to deal with the defective person that was feeding all of these cats and the legal avenues that were available to me.

I could not be more grateful for the help and support that Voiceless-MI has given me. I have nothing but positive things to say about this program. It is the product of a very careful management of limited funding combined with a very generous donation of time made by the people who administer and do the work of the program. These are people who are truly putting themselves out for the betterment of animal welfare in this community.

I first became aware of Voiceless when I visited our local shelter. The group was volunteering at that time helping out with everything from cleaning to walking and caring for the animals. My LilGirl was adopted from the shelter because of Voiceless's opinion of her. A little pitbull mix that turned out to be my Barley's best friend. I have since adopted two other furbabies since then thru Voiceless. Their foster care parents are the best and work to make sure that all of the furbabies have everything they need until a permanent home is found. They are involved in so many activites that go toward saving and helping animals. The administration is always looking for grants to help lower income residents have spay/shot services; trap/neuter feral cats; being involved in fighting to end the inhumane gassing of animals in shelters. It is any organization that encompasses all kind of animals; wolves, cats, birds, even Tarantulas and the group has a great and loving heart not only for the animals, but for the community.

There are many rescues (thank goodness) that help out our animal friends, but Voiceless-Mi not helps the voicelss with rescuing, but searches for homes, arranges medical help and counseling for clients. They help not only adoptees but those that might be forced to give up their furry buddy. They serve a need in our community that has many lower-income families that still should be able to enjoy the ability of having a furry buddy in their home. This is a multi-faceted organization with many years of experience behind each officer and volunteer serving. Their goals give the rescued a "forever" home. Officers and volunteers of this organization work 24/7. It is an organization that I am very proud to be a part of and hope that they will be able to continue their services to the Voiceless!

The Great!

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

being a contributor, seeking information for my furry friends, seeking homes for friends of mine that needed to give up their buddies, medical questions and finally adopting my new pal, Hooper.

Ways to make it better...

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

win the lottery and give them a million dollars to continue the "good" fight!

More feedback...

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

the expertise of the officers and volunteers.

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

Holly Sauve, Beth Contreras, Deb Jaworski, Linda Macias and Allie Phillips

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

set up a rescue farm that could house and serve many animals at a time.

Ways to make it better...

not possible

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

the ability to reach the public with the reality of what happens in most animal shelters and the results of abuse and neglect.

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

Voicelss-Mi takes on the hard core problems of animal care. It is not easy fighting city hall!

A small family of feral cats adopted our home and family to serve their needs and we managed it, for a time. When we were utterly overwhelmed and didn't know where to turn we were turned down for help by every cat advocacy program in Kalamazoo. When it looked like it was going to be us or them for survival we expanded our range for appeals all the way to Indiana. Only Voiceless heard and answered.

Everything others have written here has been true of our experience as well. Holly seemed to know precisely how to help best. She was warm, professional, and never judged us for not doing more. When DH balked at driving our charges so far Holly even fixed that! We really couldn't have imagined the kindness and generosity of this organization. They deserve every bit of help any animal lover can give them.

The first reviewer beat me to it...Expansion! Perhaps one day they might expand their mission to include training other animal advocates how to do advocacy?

If it had not been for Voiceless-MI we would not have been able to provide the important nuetering surgery our rescued dog needed.It was timely,professional compassionate and educational.I simply cannot speak highly enough of the efforts these folks make to help not only the animals to be provided for,but also to educate & support the animals caregivers so that these animals are provided the best care possible.

Voiceless does such a fantastic job helping animals in our area. I live in the city, and we have a huge stray problem. People dump their pets and I can't stand watching an animal suffer, so I try to help. Voiceless has been a constant resource with service and advice for the stray cats I've encountered. They have solid connections with veterinary care and shelters, and have helped me multiple times when I capture a cat that needs help. Without their help, I couldn't have spayed/neutered and placed any of the cats that have sought shelter in my yard. They deserve recognition for all they do.

The Great!

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

multiple ways. They host adoption events, foster animals in need, started a low-cost spay/neuter/vaccination clinic for the area. They are really more proactive with the real "problem" than the ASPCA. They are on a grassroots level to help animals in need

The folks at Voiceless-MI are devoted to volunteering their time to helping dogs and cats in need. I have adopted a homeless cat and an abandoned kitten through their organization. I was able to spay my adopted kitten through their low-cost spay and neuter program. I experienced dedicated, caring individuals who made sure the animals were going to a good home and provided education on pet care.

The Great!

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

being able to adopt a cat who was rescued from the street, given vet care, neutered and loved. Following that, an abandoned kitten was taken in and cared for, spayed, and I was allowed to adopt her as well. The people in this organization are devoted.

Ways to make it better...

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

Find them more money to do the tireless, selfless work that they do for vulnerable cats and dogs.

More feedback...

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

the outstanding individuals who give their time, expertise, and love for cats and dogs in need.

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

stellar. Well organized, professional, educated, and enthusiastic.

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

Rescue more dogs and cats, including their work to keep dogs from being sold to brokers and to research; spay and neuter more animals so as to reduce overpopulation, and provide education to more pet owners.

Ways to make it better...

I honestly can't think of anything that would have improved my experiences with this group.

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

availability of foster homes, resources, and the tremendous need in the sheer number of homeless dogs and cats.

My neighborhood has seen its share of homeless, stray cats and I was feeling sad for them. I contacted Voiceless-Mi and explained my situation and they truly reached out and found all the right avenues to help me with this cat. Because of them and their unconditional love for the ones that can't speak that stray cat now has a great home and a very loving family. So hats off to the greatest rescue I could ever come across.

The Great!

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

by seeing the progress of their devotional work. the progress of their help to those that need help in finding homes and friends.
