All 19 grants will help pets find forever homes by providing needed care to make them adoptable or by encouraging pet adoption. We are so grateful to our supporters for giving a second chance to thousands of homeless pets in West Michigan.  Thank you BISSELL Blocktail Party attendees, friends and donors for your part in these incredible results!
