TODAY IS GIVING TUESDAY. A CHANCE FOR YOU TO GET BACK TO NONPROFI IN WEST MICHIGAN. WE HAVE TAMMY FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF WEST MICHIGAN TO TELL US ABOUT THE BIG EFFORTS THEY’RE PULLING OUT TODAY. WHO DO YOU HAVE WITH YOU? THIS PRECIOUS PUPPY IS NORMAL. CHOOSE THREE MONTHS OLD. SHE WAS AN OWNER SURRENDER. SHE DECIDED TO TAKE A LITTLE NAP. SHE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION AT HUMANE SOCIETY OF WEST MICHIGAN. NORMA IS ONE OF THOUSANDS OF PETS THAT HOPEFULLY WILL BE ADOPTED THIS YEAR. YOU ARE A NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION WHICH MEANS YOU PRETTY MUCH DEPEND ON DONATIONS TO KEEP YOUR DOORS OPEN AND KEEP THE ANIMALS FED AND CARED FOR. WE ARE 100% DONOR FUNDED. WE DEFINITELY RELY ON THE GENEROSITY OF THE WEST MICHIGAN COMMUNITY FROM IT IN-KIND SUPPORT TO SPONSORSHIP TO INITIATIVES LIKE HAVING TUESDAY. ONLINE GIVING PLATFORM WHERE DONORS CAN DONATE FUNDS FOR ANIMALS AND GET THEIR DOLLARS MATCHED. WHAT KINDS OF ANIMALS WOULD YOU FIND AT THE HUMANE SOCIETY? DOGS, PUPPIES, CATS, KITTENS. RABBITS. WE CAN ADD A COUPLE SNAKES. IGS, BIRDS. OVER 3500 PETS ADOPTED EACH YEAR. YOU HAVE A COUPLE LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE REALLY COMING OUT AND IN THEIR MATCHING DOLLARS FOR YOU AND THAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT BECAUSE THAT’S GOING TO HELP YOU BIG-TIME WITH THE CARE OF THESE ANIMALS. IT DOES TAKE A LOT OF FUNDING TO FEED, SHELTER CARE. WE PROVIDE ENRICHMENT AND SOCIALIZATION FOR OUR ANIMALS. GIVING TUESDAY IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY AND OUR FRIENDS MATCH UP TO $10,000. EACH GAVE $5,000 FOR US FROM THIS INITIATIVE. IF YOU GIVE $100 IT INSTANTLY BECOMES $200. IT’S NICE TO KNOW WHEN YOU ARE GIVING TO SAY THAT MONEY IS GOING TO GO THE EXTRA MILE. HOW IS IT BEST FOR PEOPLE TO MAKE THE DONATION? PROBABLY THE BEST WAY IS TO GO ONLINE. IT IS GIVING TUESDAY. AN ONLINE GIVING PLATFORM FOR OUR DONORS. OR IF THEY WANT TO STOP BY AND HAND US MONEY, THAT’S FINE. WE WOULD NEVER SAY NO TO THAT. I CAN ALSO MAIL A CHECK INTO IT HUMANE SOCIETY OF WEST MICHIGAN AND JUST DESIGNATE IT TO GIVING TUESDAY. WE SEE PUPPIES LIKE NORMA HERE. OBVIOUSLY A JACK RUSSELL TERRIER MIX OF SOME SORT. JUST A PRECIOUS SWEET DOG. WHEN YOU DO ADOPT FROM THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF MICHIGAN YOU PRETTY MUCH KNOW THAT THE ANIMAL IS GETTING A CLEAN BILL OF HEALTH BEFORE IT ACTUALLY COMES TO YOUR HOME. WE MEDICALLY AND BEHAVIORALLY SESS EACH ANIMAL. WE GET THEM UP TO SPEED ON THEIR SHOTS AND WE ALSOAND NEUTER. JACK RUSSELL’S TYPICALLY AREN’T THIS CHILL. SHE HAS HAD A BIG MORNING. IT’S A LOT OF WORK BEING ON TV. SHE WOULD MAKE A GREAT PET. SHE COULD USE ANOTHER DOG IN THE HOME TO SHOW HER THE HOPES AND TEACH HER THE WAY OF WHAT BEING A DOG IS ALL ABOUT. COMING UP ON SATURDAY, YOU HAVE A HOLIDAY OPEN SE. IT’S YOUR REGULAR HOURS OF 11:00 TO 4:00. WHAT HAPPENS AT THE HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE? PEOPLE CAN COME INTO THE SHELTER AND IDENTIFY A PET HIM I BE INTERESTED IN ADOPTING. THEY GO THROUGH OUR ADOPTION PROCESS. AN ADOPTION COUNSELOR WOULD TAKE THEM BACK AND LET THEM MEET THE ANIMAL. IF IT’S A GOOD FIT FOR THE FAMILY AND THE ANIMAL THAT ANIMAL COULD GO HOME. PUPPIES ARE IN HIGH DEMAND. THERE’S A LOT OF OTHER ANIMALS YOU SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE THE COST OF ADOPTING ON EVENTS LIKE THIS. YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO TAKE A PET HOME FOR A FRACTION OF THE COST. EXACTLY.
