I have believed in Voiceless MI's mission and have been a supporter for a long time. I have a friend, who has very low income and could not afford to get her dog spayed. Thanks to Voiceless MI, they worked with her and she was able to get her sweet dog taken care of. All could not be better for them! I truly believe in this organization and all they accomplish!

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!

I have donated to Voiceless MI several times and they are always one of the first on my list. Not only do they rescue dogs n need giving them the care they need and find them great homes, they work at the source of the problem by funding spay/neuter programs. As the old saying goes 'an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure'. This is something the shelters and humane societies need to take note of. It is far less expensive and humane to prevent the birth of unwanted pups and kittens than to kill them because there are no homes. We need to educate and help people and this group does a great job! They are on the front lines working to make Michigan a truly humane state. Also, they don't waste a DIME of any donation. No salaries or benefits here. The volunteers are truly dedicated.

These guys are awesome. Many rescues only try to find homes for the many unwanted unloved pets in the area. Voiceless-MI goes a step further. They fund many spay and neuter programs to help reduce the unwanted pet population and they work hard with the Michigan Congress and Senate to get them to pass legislature that will protect the voiceless animals of Michigan from inhumane treatment. They also raise money for worthy causes like getting comfortable pet beds for animals already in shelters.

Voiceless-MI is a comprehensive animal rights and rescue organization. They are key in the sharing of timely and critical information on legislation affecting our pets in Michigan. Even if they are not directly involved in something, I have been able to get answers to my questions through them and their willingness to find out the answers for people. It is that dedication that made me want to be a donor. They also helped me with a personal "pet" project to find rescue for a pet that had been dumped at 11 years old. They recently took in a lovely pit bull with heartworm and are committed to his treatment and recovery. In other words, they really focus on what they can do to help regardless of the breed. The volunteers in this group work days, nights, weekends on behalf of this cause. They are effective, quick, responsive and organized - all of the hallmarks of a great non-profit!

Voiceless-MI provides a much needed voice for those who cannot speak. Not only do they help animals in need and assist with low cost neuter/ spay, they also encourage others to help animals by speaking up for a change in the laws. They provide timely information to help voters contact their elected officials and let their voices be heard on behalf of animals and the people who care for them. I plan on donating to them again and truly appreciate what they do for the dogs and cats in this state.

Wonderful group of dedicated people. They offer low fee/free spay and neuter programs, and low cost vaccinations. They do rescue work and fostering, helping homeless pets find forever homes. They also work to stop selling of pound animals to class B dealers.

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.
