At MBC we’re dedicated to making a positive impact in our communities by helping individuals and families in need. We do this through our commitment to help support charities that make a huge impact in the lives of many throughout our Michigan communities. One of the ways we raise money is with Friday Casual Days. Every month MBC employees have the opportunity to pay $20 for the privilege of wearing blue jeans or other casual attire on Fridays.
Our spotlight charity for January is the Humane Society of Huron Valley
The mission of the Humane Society of Huron Valley is to support the loving, responsible care of all animals in our community.
Since 1896 the Humane Society of Huron Valley has been serving the community, saving animals and helping people. HSHV is still the only animal shelter in Washtenaw County, taking in all types of unwanted, injured, lost, stray, abandoned, and abused animals. Today, they help over 14,000 animals and their people every year. HSHV is governed by a board of directors and is supported by generous individual and corporate donors.
Humane Society of Huron Valley has the highest “save rate” among all similar animal shelters in Michigan? And they are classified as a “no-kill” shelter, as defined by Maddie’s Fund, a leader in the no-kill movement? And Michigan Pet Fund Alliance consistently recognizes HSHV for their save rate. Don’t take our word for it; see Michigan shelter statistics on their website. They also regularly help other shelters, too, as we need to all work together for a no-kill nation!
