I learned about Voiceless-MI through Cat Rescue. I connected with Jan Lifsey and she explained how the TNR program works. After my dog died I began noticing numerous feral cats in and around my yard. I had no idea that Voiceless-MI even existed. I signed up to participate and have had three cats neutered to date. I am working on trapping and neutering four more. I think this is a wonderful program and plan to become a regular donator as well as continue to participate. I was always a dog person but have now become a cat lover as well

I have a colony of feral cats that I have trapped had neutered and spayed , ear trimmed and now they live in my back yard and the woods behind me. I feed them twice a day and provide shelters in winter. I have gotten so much helpful information from the voiceless group. Also, they helped me get a new feral cat neutered. He came around causing trouble with the original feral group. By helping me with the TNR effort the neighborhood is a lot quieter and one more cat is not able to reproduce. The people that work for this organization are generous with their knowledge on feral TNR. They truly care about minimizing animal suffering. I appreciate all the advice and help I have received from them.

Voiceless is amazing!! I have 10 kitty's that just ended up in my pole barn within a 6 month period. Voiceless neutered all of these sweet little delights. They came to my home trapped and delivered the kitties for surgery and then brought them back home. The population in this country corner is now at a minimum. Thank you so much Voiceless of Michigan!!!

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.

A voiceless volunteer gave us advise and a special trap when we had a feral mother cat and her four kittens show up at our house in a country location. When the kittens were safely trapped (as soon as they were able to eat on their own) and taken to a proper shelter we trapped the mother and through the program she was spayed at no charge. Jan the volunteer helped us with any questions we had along the way. The mother cat now spayed is returned to our home area where we leave food out for her each morning. She is still feral and does not come close to us but has a chance to live out her life in the countryside without producing hundreds of offspring.

I needed a drop-trap and some expertise and direction. Holly Thoms provided all of that and more. Due to circumstances beyond my control, it took much longer for a successful trap than it should've , but Holly was very patient and understanding. From my experience, Voiceless-Mi. is an organization of major value and importance and should be supported any way possible.

I had wanted to trap and neuter a feral male cat from my neighborhood. He had fought with a racoon, so was missing hair in spots and had a wound and swelling on his leg. Two neighbors wanted to shoot him. I rented a trap (I didn't know that I could have borrowed one free from Voiceless!) but had failed to get him. Worried, I drove to the spay and neuter clinic to show them photos of his injuries. I was told to contact Voiceless. The videos and lengthy encouragement from this great organization stopped me from giving up on him. I pestered them often with emails and offered my frustrations. I got kindness and tips in return. Finally, he was trapped, treated, neutered, and put into my cattery cage, which was a foreign environment for him. Since his release, he has returned several times to eat and even to sit on my porch! Although it may be years, if ever, before I can pet him, he knows where and when there is food out for him, and this morning he watched me clean the barn. I plan to give him a special shelter for winter. Instead of pain and helplessness, he has a future, thanks to Voiceless! I highly recommend them!!!

There were 4 nursing mothers, one of them so protective of her litter that no human contact has been made yet. The other 3 mothers shared nursing duties and half of their kittens have already been adopted. One of theirs' was put up for adoption by Humane Society making it easier to spay 3 of the mothers (one of which was pregnant again.) The first cat neutered was an abandoned cat who has since been adopted along with a kitten. Just neutered one of the four remaining tom cats and hoping to have last nursing mother spayed as she is now pregnant again. Voiceless loaned me a trap and a medium sized dog crate. They gave vouchers for the 8 that have been neutered and spayed. They always responded promptly to emails and offered advice. Their videos about TNR are very helpful and the suggestion of a chart to show all cats to be spayed and neutered, keeping it organized was helpful.

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.

I searched the Internet to find just the right little feline companion and came across Voiceless-MI. I am so happy I did!

Listed on Voiceless-MI as "Tripp", I found a wonderful, cuddly male older (possibly 8 years old?) cat, Siamese (gray-point, short hair). When his foster "mom" found him in January 2016, he was emaciated, bitten, and had a mangled left front arm. Voiceless helped his foster mom & dad get the help Tripp needed right away. He got up to date on his shots, fed well, and had to have his arm amputated. Poor guy!

When I met him at his foster home in March 2016, he approached me right away, and ran around the house like he was very excited! Then, when I sat on the couch, he jumped up behind me and proceeded to make his way down to my chest, where he gladly lay down and purred loudly! He actually nudged my face with his! The more I pet him, the more he nudged and purred! I fell in love instantly! Yep, this was the companion for me. I have mobility issues and pain, so I have many "bad" days and end up at home all day, sometimes for two or three days consecutively. He and I seemed the perfect match!

After meeting "Tripp", which Dawn, the Foster Coordinator at my local Voiceless-MI had set up, I received many more emails and texts from Dawn as to my decision and wrapping up the adoption process. All the constant contact was great.

I was so happy that Dawn delivered Tripp to me because of my mobility issues! And after a few days of he and I getting to know each other, and "Tripp" meeting my adult daughter who visited, I decided to change his name. It has been changed to "Takoda." This is an Apache term for someone they consider to be "The Friend of All." He certainly is!!! Takoda greets everyone that visits, and he LOVES to be held, hugged, petted, and cuddled; he especially likes to be talked to, whispering with loving tones while holding him close is one of his favorites. He even enjoys being held & loved on by children, as you can see by one of my photos below--that little girl is my friend's daughter.

Takoda seems to really need to be touched in order to be happy--I do, too--I've always loved hugs. Since he is a vocal little guy, Takoda lets me know when he needs a cuddle. I have to admit he's very hard to resist, because, well, I love to cuddle too! We're perfect for each other and I couldn't be happier with our match. Thank you Voiceless!!!!

Takoda is pretty smart; he comes when I call him; he knows what "come, come" and "come here", and what "no" means. Takoda even knows what it means when I tap my hand on my leg without me saying come here! If his water bowl is getting low, he vocalizes to let me know. So, I guess I've been trained to check his water bowl in case it's getting low; but usually his vocalizing means he wants a cuddle. Such a cutie!

Everyone I dealt with at Voiceless-MI was caring and wonderful. I highly recommend anything you need pet-wise, go to Voiceless-MI.

Was at my wits end trying to figure out how to get my pets their rabies shots as Spectran will not let me bring pets to the veternarian. Voiceless-MI found a solution to the problem for me finding a volunteer, Jan, to take me and our two pets to a vet. Even finding a program to pay for the care as well.

Voiceless came to our rescue when they helped us trap, neuter and spay several feral cats we had been feeding. If it had not been for Voiceless, there would have been another dozen kittens born outside with no home. They are a wonderful organization.

This organization is great! With their help and support, so many animals are helped and saved through their generosity and financial support. Without their help, I would of been unable to afford to get my cats and dogs fixed, which would help them health-wise and help prevent further overpopulation of animals. Their vouchers are a financial lifesaver. Thank you and keep up the fantastic work! Hopefully someday we will fix the overpopulation of unnecessary animals so no animal is put down because of space limits.

We are disabled senior citizens that live on a small fixed income. Because we live in the country, people feel it's OK to drop their unwanted cats here. As a result, we have many cats that need to be fed, spayed and neutered. Voiceless helped us out with the last three cats. It has made a tremendous change in the behavior of these cats and the way they interact with the cats we already had. I am very grateful to Voiceless for this help.

If it weren't for voiceless, the feral cats that live around my house quite simply would not have gotten spayed and neutered and there would have been an even worse cat problem. I cannot imagine what would have happened to them and future cats if it weren't for voiceless. Thanks to voiceless, I was able to get all four of the feral cats fixed and they are happily living in the neighborhood! Here's a picture of two of the kittens that were neutered. I was impressed by the prompt and friendly interactions with the voiceless staff. It was a great experience and now I tell anyone with outside cats about the group.

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 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.

Voiceless-MI is an incredible organization. We had an out of control feral cat population on our street and they helped us in four important ways. First, they listened to our situation and gave us advice on how to do trap/spay/neuter/release. Second, they gave us the tools (traps and kennel for post-op care). Third, they gave us financial support through vouchers at the CAHS Spay/Neuter clinic. Fourth, they gave us resources and information to help us and also to help educate our neighbors. They are an excellent example of how a non-profit can give financial support and training to get important work done.

Voiceless, totally saved my cookies when it came time to get my big fella neutered.

I found a kitten in my yard out in the country. I kept her because the shelter might put her to sleep. She was feral when found. She had to be fixed and I could not afford it. Voiceless MI came to the rescue with a voucher for a major discount. She can't make anymore unwanted kittens. She is now 8 years old and lives indoors only.

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!

We were looking for a companion for our older black lab who was home alone most of the day. A quick internet search led me to Voiceless Michigan's website, and then to just about the best dog anyone could hope for.
He and his two brothers were surrendered to the River Rouge shelter at about four years old with obvious emotional damage from some sort of abuse.
Voiceless Michigan did such an amazing job working with him and getting him the emotional and physical support he needed to begin to feel comfortable around people again and being on a leash.
I'm certain that if Voiceless Michigan had not been there providing the services they do (which are many), our wonderful dog, Remo, and countless others would not only not be living the life of a loved and loving family member, they would not be living at all.
I cannot thank them enough.

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.

I was going thru a very difficult time fighting for disability and Voiceless-MI provided me with the assistance I desperately needed to get Akasha, my pit bull, her rabies vaccine, her other shots, and for her to be spayed! Without their voucher, there's no way I would have been able to afford to keep my furbaby up to date on the necessary vaccines or to keep her from reproducing more puppies I couldn't afford at the time, not to mention to keep from adding to overpopulation of her breed. With so many of them already needing forever homes or being put down, I wouldn't want to see any more animals suffer the same fate because I simply could not afford it at the time. Thank you Voiceless-MI for helping me to keep Akasha healthy and to keep her licensed in our county!

I find this organization to be extremely helpful in getting animals spayed and neutered at low cost which is beneficial to everyone especially the animals. They are willing to go the extra mile to help someone who needs it concerning their animals. I do not drive but have been willing to donate dog/cat food and other items and they more than willing to pick the items up. I also bake for them in fundraisers and they pick up the goodies as well. If I had a problem I feel I could call this organization and they would direct me in the right direction for finding out an answer if they did not know it themselves.

Voiceless is a top notch non-profit organization that should be in every city in the U.S. They volunteer hours of their time, gas and their own money to try and help as many owners of pit bulls that can't afford to get their dogs spayed and neutered. In the long run it saves our local shelters from having to euthanize so many unwanted pit bulls. They also help educate people as the many benefits of spaying and neutering. Our shelters nationwide are filled with unwanted pets with the majority being pit bulls. Unfortunately, the majority of the public are not willing to adopt a pit bull due to the reputation they have. They can then fall in to the wrong hands and used as bait or for fighting. This organization does more to stop this over breeding of pit bulls then any other I have ever known in my 64 yrs of rescuing dogs. I know many of the volunteers personally and can't say enough great things about these people that give up their personal lives, time and money to take on other people's responsibilities because of their loving, caring nature. It would be wonderful if everyone that is able would donate to this non profit organization so they can reach out even further in their dedication to stop the over breeding and abuse.

A few years ago the farm where my clients work was overrun with feral cats and kittens. We had recently heard of Voiceless MI and their Trap, Neuter, Release program for feral cats. We contacted them, and shortly thereafter they loaned us several live traps and we began the process of trapping the cats. We spent much of that summer completing this endeavor. Altogether 29 adult cats were trapped, spayed and neutered and released back to the property. 13 kittens were also caught, and were successfully able to be fostered by us, spayed and neutered, and adopted into loving, indoor homes. The property owner was thrilled and is to this day, very grateful to Voiceless MI, and us for helping to successfully end the constant breeding and repopulating of the farm. The cats that were released, are mostly still residing there, are much healthier, are keeping the barn free of mice, and there have been no litters born there since we started the program! Last summer we worked once again, with Voiceless MI, and successfully trapped 14 cats and kittens from a North Lansing Neighborhood. Only four were feral, and were spayed and neutered, and released back. The other 10, and eleven kittens that they graced us with, shortly after arrival in our home, were all able to be spayed and neutered and adopted into homes! Through our involvement, and greatly in part, to Voiceless MI, we were able to foster and adopt out 52 cats and kittens in 2015. We currently have two females, one who has 4 five week old kittens, that we are fostering. They will soon be attending Voiceless Mi sponsored adoption events, and hopefully all be placed into wonderful homes. Voiceless MI is, as you can tell, by the testimony I have given here, a truly wonderful organization that is doing amazing work to help control the feral cat overpopulation problem. I cannot thank them enough for the help and support they have given us in our efforts, and ALL the work that they do on behalf of our voiceless animal companions! I look forward to continuing to work with all of the awesome people associated with this organization! VOICELESS MI ROCKS!!! ❤️❤️❤️

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.

I love this charity! I believe that it is made up of a lot of folks who used to belong to the now defunct FICAS, or Friends of Ingham County Animal Shelter. Years ago, the new shelter director disbanded FICAS and many of the gals (and guys?) formed Voiceless-MI. They are instrumental in getting no- and low-cost spay/neuter to animals in and around Ingham County. They also used to run a HUGE rummage sale every summer to which I would donate a box or two of goods collected 'round my home each year. Well, the sale got so big that they can no longer have it. Sure wish they could find time. I loved donating to them and this was a big fund-raiser. Small groups like this REALLY need your help. So ... give local!

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 .

Voiceless rescures dogs and cat from kill shelters often hours before that animal will be put to death. The only reason these animal were on the kill list was because of over population at that particular shelter. Each animal is taken into the home of one of voiceless member and provided with loving care and any medical treatment the animal requires. I have gotten two great dogs from them and I love them dearly and I am so greatful that Voiceless rescued these animal for me. Thank you Voiceless from the bottom of my heart.

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.

They are amazing. I believe all the neighborhood kitties live in our barn. Voiceless got the kitties spayed and neutered. What greatness from this nonprofit.

Voiceless not only advised and lent me humane traps to catch the 15 feral barn cats , they also financed spaying , neutering and initial immunizations. It is a great organization.

Last summer nine kittens showed up on my porch. This year, zero. Why? Voiceless-MI trap/neuter/release program. I could not have afforded to help these kittens on my own given my limited income. With their help, I was able to trap/neuter/release several cats, plus get their vaccinations. Some of the friendly ones were able to be tested for FIV and feline leukemia and then placed in homes. All were given rabies shots, and I was able to pay the small amount necessary to give them the rest of their vaccines.

Voiceless MI has helped me twice to manage a feral colony in East Lansing! Helen came to help with the process twice and they always keep us updated on the status and how many they have helped TNR. I love being able to make a difference in reducing the number of feral and stray kittens and cats humanely! This charity is the best in my opinion!

I started with Voiceless Mi when I noticed a momma cat had kittens they were living wild and the mom cat was pregnant again. Voiceless help me get started trapping and rehoming them. What started out as one cat with kittens turned into 3 colonies of cats and many many litters of kittens that Voiceless educated me on how to socialize and get rehomed. I was very new to this and stumbled with my attempts many times but Voiceless was always there lending equipment and knowledge. Also with their help I have been able to get a few low income families in to get their pets spayed or neutered. I always tell people with pets to visit their website for help !

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.
