On Thursday, October 20th we hosted the

5th Annual Wags & Whiskers.

This spaytacular event raised more money than any previous year allowing us to expand our reach, helping more cats and dogs in West Michigan.


In addition to our sponsors, volunteers and Host Committee, we are grateful to our Planning Committee. 

When compassionate people come together, our community becomes a more humane place to live.


Planning Committee:

Co-Chair: Andrea Brandt

Co-Chair: Kris Nylaan

Members:  Kathy Freeman, Tim Plichta, Jennifer Pope and Jane Urbanski
