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.

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.

Mo was left alone to die in a garage when the family moved and simply left him behind. He was neglected during his early months of life, which caused him heart problems and near blindness. Voiceless was contacted by an animal shelter who realized that his chances of adoption were slim due to his extensive medical issues.
Voiceless brought him home, sought out an eye specialist and after numerous doctor appointments he was ready for his fresh start in life.
After an extensive search, Mo was placed across the country with his new family. They saw past his medical issues and simply wanted the best for him. Mo blossomed in his new home and was a hit at a local business where he was welcomed every morning.
This is just one of a hundred stories about this wonderful organization that is run solely by volunteers and people with a passion to help the voiceless.
All of these folks work, have families and still make time to change laws, change lives and make the world a better place for animals and humans. Thank you Voiceless!

I had low income and needed a kitten fixed that was dumped off in my yard. I decided to keep her, since cats are way over populated in shelters. I got a voucher from Voiceless to get her fixed for a super discount. It helped save the kitten from a shelter or euthanasia and made sure no more unwanted kittens came from this cat. Thank you Voiceless!

I contacted Voiceless-MI about their TNR program for a stray colony that I had been feeding in the trailer park where I live. They agreed to help me trap the cats and even to let them recover at the home of the woman that runs Voiceless-MI. As the trapping was happening I found out that people in the park and the park owner were planning on getting rid of the colony. The woman at Voiceless and another woman that helped me trap the cats relocated the colony to a friend of theirs' barn. They even managed to get the two newest additions to the colony adopted out. This was an ordeal for all involved and the TNR program does not do this pretty much ever. Anyways all cats involved are safe and have homes where they will be cared for. As soon as I get back to work regularly I am planning on donating some money to them. Many thanks to Holly, Jann and Jackie.

An abandoned female cat gave birth to four kittens in my woodpile. I called numerous agencies and rescue groups for help. Due to an overflow of cats in our area, none were able to help me. Until I reached Voiceless. They sent one of their volunteers to assess the situation and give me assistance. Her name was Brenda, but it should be Angel. She tirelessly assisted me in caring for the mother and her brood, humanely trapping them and helping me move them into my spare bedroom so I could foster care them. She brought me food, supplies, a kitty playpen for the kittens when they were weaned, toys to play with them and tame them. She came several days a week at my request after working her day job to get them ready for adoption. When my vet gave me the go ahead to have the mother spayed, Brenda personally transported her to and from the clinic, and was a reassuring and calming presence for the mother cat. She very carefully and selectively picked loving and caring homes for the mother and all the kittens (also spayed and neutered). An amazing lady who deeply loves and cares for cats, a true blessing. She volunteers tirelessly for Voiceless.

Voiceless-MI has helped so many low income families here in the Lansing area keep the pet population down. Without their assistance I could not have gotten the 1 feral cat I trapped and a kitten that was just dropped off fixed . They have also helped with placement of so many animals in need, which that number is growing daily. Find them on Facebook and join/follow their page for ALL the latest news.

Dedicated people tirelessly work on behalf of the Voiceless of Michigan, from feral cat TNR, pittie spay & neuter, vaccination clinics, political activism, wolf advocacy, and of course fostering dogs and cats for adoption. My family has welcomed two delightful dogs. Big happy Mac had a short time with us but gave BIG LOVE to everyone, and Little Richard, now Spike, has taken the torch. Especially urgent is the campaign to end gas chamber euthanasia at shelters in Michigan. Voiceless is the vanguard in this effort.

Both I and another family member have adopted from Voiceless-MI and I can easily say they are some of the best, most compassionate and professional animal advocates I've ever had the pleasure to work with. They help trap, neuter and release feral cats. They help low income people neuter and spay their pit bull bully type dogs. They help battle poor breed specific laws which protect neither people nor breeds. They advocate for the wolf population that has barely recovered before being set upon again without thought or any real planning. They work with local shelters and advocate against euthanasia by gassing as cruel and inhumane. They are regularly involved with getting high risk animals out of shelters and into the network of animal placement rescues and fosters they work with. Basically they are fully involved in anything that could possibly require animal advocacy on a local, regional and state level.

And they are wonderful and delightful human beings in addition to all their great work. I can't recommend them highly enough.
