AuSable Animal Shelter earns grant

GRAYLING – The Michigan Pet Fund Alliance, with the generosity of a $5,000 grant from the Humane Society of Macomb Foundation, announced a competitive grant to fund the launch of a new Community Cats program.

Much to the delight of MPFA, 21 grant applications were submitted including seven from Animal Control shelters. “I wish we had the money to fund them all.  The applications are so good”, commented MPFA board member Michelle Spranger. 

After three committee meetings and much review and discussion the grant was awarded to AuSable Valley Animal Shelter. Their application rose to the top as they stated their local newspaper and radio station would partner with them to help educate and engage the community.

After such a tough decision process, the application review committee approached the MPFA board of directors and asked for an additional $5,000 to supply 5 traps and 2 dividers or equal resources to the following applicants to help get their programs started:

  • Clare County Animal Shelter
  • Lake County Animal Control
  • Northeast Michigan TNR Inc
  • Roscommon County Animal Shelter/Control
