Charity of the Month for October 2012

Every month on the site we will highlight a charity that is dear to my heart on many levels, either
personally or because I know of someone who is dealing with a difficult
situation, an illness, or a disaster. Also, because I care. I care about
people and animals and I truly want to help in any way that I can to make
life better for them. At times we all need help. Maybe it’s difficult to ask
for it or maybe we don’t know how or can’t, but we can all stand up and reach
out a helping hand in whatever way works for us. Again, thank you for reading
and considering to help someone in need.


Huron Valley Humane

1998 I have supported the HVHS in Washtenaw County. We found our first kitten
there, tiny body with these tall ears and a pewter colored nose. She captured
our hearts at first sight. Tabitha, who is now into her teenage people years,
has been through everything in our home. From bringing home a new baby, to a 5
year old rescued dog, to a kitten (which came from HVHS too). She is now very
content laying on our bed all day, soaking up the sun. Her knees and teeth are
giving out on her, which causes her to cry out when we pick her up. Because of
this, she has obtained the nickname of “Cranky”…but we love our old girl very
much. The work that they do at HVHS is wonderful. They are a no kill facility
and will do everything to find a home or rescue shelter for every animal that
comes to them. If you are in the area, you should walk through their wonderful
facility. Who knows, maybe you will find your perfect family member!
