The MPFA and Deb Schutt have provided invaluable help and guidance to the Humane Society of Bay County in our campaign for NO KILL for adoptable homeless animals in Bay County. We have benefited greatly from the knowledge, advice and inspiration we have received from the MPFA and from Debbie personally. From serving as our keynote speaker at our NO KILL kick-off luncheon to suggesting resources and model programs to advising us on dealing with local government officials to hosting state-wide conferences on NO KILL advocacy, Debbie and the MPFA have unfailingly given their support to help our organization and others across the state. The MPFA is a huge asset to animal welfare groups, humane societies, rescues, shelters and other organizations in the fight to save adoptable animals in Michigan. I highly recommend the MPFA for all it has done and continues to do to support the establishment of NO KILL programs for homeless pets throughout Michigan.

If it wasn't for Debbie Schutt and MPF our group would still be attending Commissioner's meetings and fighting for change in Livingston County, I have no doubt of it. If you want guidance and/or advice in any endeavor in Michigan to make this a state that can be proud of the way it's animals are treated, please contact them, we could not have done it without their guidance.

The positive changes made in Livingston have everything to do with Michigan Pet Fund Alliance! Thank you so much!!!

Michigan Pet Fund Alliance is a progressive organization that takes a leadership role in promoting the no-kill movement and best practices to protect the rights of our shelter animals. In my work with the organization, I found them to be responsive and committed to the animals and always willing to assist in promoting animal welfare. A wonderful organization with outstanding leadership. I highly recommend them.

Michigan Petfund Alliance is a highly effective organization that provides critical leadership, education and advocacy for homeless animals and animal welfare groups. Our state is fortunate to have MPFA advancing the cause of saving the lives of our beloved companion animals and stemming over-population.

Our animals are very fortunate to have the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance in their corner. MPFA is ALWAYS willing to step up and help shelters improve, to educate and influence policy makers and to support anyone advocating for animal welfare/protection. I count myself very fortunate to have firsthand experience working with this group. Not only am I much more knowledgeable and informed, my family (including my pets) lives in a better community because of this group.

I have served on other boards of non-profits, but this one is exemplary. The mission of saving animals is foremost in everything they do, often at personal expense.
