Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue has helped pets find loving homes since 2003. They are a non-profit rescue for dogs and cats that first began in a barn with the support of volunteers. Their mission is to protect animals and residents by providing a safe and healthy environment for all. By finding pets a forever home, they live out this mission statement each and every day.
The BISSELL Pet Foundation awarded a grant to the Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue to help support their Trap-Neuter-Release program for feral cats in their community by providing funds for spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, and adoption support. Not only did they use the funds to help 100 stray cats in the community, but they also provided adoption support to find 5 dogs loving homes.
Two of the dogs who benefited from the BISSELL Pet Foundation grant are Bitsey and Bea. These two Hound mix sisters were brought to Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue from local animal control. They were very malnourished and needed to be treated for internal parasites. This grant provided spay surgeries, vaccinations, and microchipping for both of these special pups. They also received more love from volunteers than they could have ever imagined. Bitsey and Bea were both quickly adopted into loving homes and are doing wonderful with their new families.
