I do not think I could get this involved or work as hard for any other cause. I think about those less fortunate animals out there every day and know that we can do more with our community of friends than we could possibly do ourselves to help them.

2021 MIAWF Food Drive

Aleta Sill’s Bowling World is an Official Drop Off Site to Accept Donations. The amazing volunteers of the Michigan Animal Adoption Network / Animal Care Network do street rescue on the weekend to feed many animals who desperately need our help.  The Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit need food and supplies while they provide a temporary home for animals until they find their forever home.  Cat Tail Acres needs food and supplies for all the feral and unwanted cats they feed and provide for every day.

The need does not end….we are ALWAYS happy to accept food donations for our furry friends who need us!

Remain a voice for those who cannot help themselves.
