I own Samuel V. Macias Realtors a bilingual Real Estate Company in Lansing,Mi. that employees people from Cuba,Mexico and various other Latin American contries. Voicless-MI has not only helped with nutering,spaying and shots at a low rate but, explaining to these people why these things are necessary to keep their animals safe and healthy.They are used to street animals and roof dogs.Mostly strays that you throw a few scraps to. Education is a wonderful thing ! Being a Large Breed person myself I am happy to see all of the Large and Giant Breeds such as Mastiffs that they have taken in and found good homes for. Voiceless-Mi being a newer rescue can really use this money to help start new programs for aal of the animals in the state of Michigan. The president Holly Sauve is quite personable and has worked for and helped other rescues plus has great plans for the future of Voiceless-Mi. Please help her acheive these goals !

As an animal lover, I've been following Voiceless MI and their concern and dedication to the welfare of our pets. I donate to their low cost spay/neuter program which does so much to help pets and owners right here in our community. Also, I've learned so much about animal legislation thru their emails.

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.

Voiceless is dedicated to helping all animals in Michigan, particularly shelter cats and dogs who reside in shelters that engage in pound seizure (giving cats and dogs to research) or that are euthanized by gas chamber. Voiceless os dedicated to end pound seizure and has assisted in taking action on the 2009-10 Michigan anti-pound seizure bill, motivating local advocates to support the bill, and educating others about the practice. Their advocacy efforts have helped, and will continue to help, countless shelter cats and dogs.

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.

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.

My husband and I had been looking for a cat for our daughter. I think its a good thing to have your kids grow up with animals. We had been looking on line and a number of adoption sites and on craigs list when we found Kit. She had a very touching story, she was a stray that had been taken in and had lost a litter of kittens to some feral cats. The young woman who had her was apart of the voiceless group and told us how much the re homing fee was. That was what had decided it for us, we couldn't afford to buy all the things we needed for a new cat and 150.00 adoption fee. Kit had been fixed and had all her shots up to date. We decided to think on it one night and give her time to say goodbye. We spent the day buying stuff for Kit, all the essentials and a few things to hopefully make her feel at home. The next morning we picked her up and brought her home. It took her a few days to get used to her new home but now she is part of the family.

A plea was sent out to help the cats and dogs at Eaton County Animal Control. The cats didn't have any litter and the dogs were sleeping on cement floors. Voiceless-MI (previously FICAS) board members solicited for donations and delivered enough kitty litter to last an entire year. They also provided Kuranda beds for every kennel for the dogs. This group is very dedicated to the cause of helping animals in need.

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 came to Voiceless-MI looking for help and guidance on what to do with a pregnant stray cat. Voiceless-MI called vets and asked questions and helped me make a decision on what to do. The cat went to the Voiceless-MI low-cost spay/neuter clinic. They also helped me find a home for her and another stray cat that I had taken in and was trying to adopt out on my own. When Voiceless-MI heard that there were many more abandoned cats in my neighborhood, they stepped up and wanted to help. With their help the stray cats in my neighborhood are getting the medical attention they need and some are getting homes. I came to them with one cat in need and they have saved the lives of so many other cats in my neighborhood.
