Help add the human element to the mission of the Capital Area Humane Society

Happy tails make happy stories.

For more than 80 years, the Capital Area Humane Society has provided care and comfort to adoptable pets in Greater Lansing until they can make the transition to their permanent homes. Now we are asking the public to help us continue to tell these success stories.

The “Create Hope, Complete Families” fundraising campaign allows the organization to expand the work done to protect and heal unwanted, homeless and abused animals in our region. The campaign is now in the final weeks of its public – and final – campaign phase: a $ 500,000 effort to reach the overall goal of $ 2.5 million by November 19.

The first phase of the campaign was open to local foundations, businesses in the region and community donors. It has enabled the renovation of puppy and dog adoption areas, as well as the creation of a cruelty prevention center, which is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.

Following a fundraiser “paws” due to the pandemic, the final phase of the open campaign in support of the community at large has begun. It will fund renovations to the shelter, including dog and puppy-like adoption suites at home; improvements to flooring to reduce the spread of disease; expansion of food preparation and laundry systems to accommodate the size and scope of the establishment’s operations; as well as the expansion of the space for animal enrichment, exercise and play, which is important for the health and welfare of animals.

Once completed, these renovations will ensure a quality experience for our pets, adoptive families and the many volunteers to help with our mission.

However, the work of CAHS cannot be delivered without the unwavering support of the human element. Your continued compassion will allow us to stem the suffering and abuse of animals in our community and advance our efforts to ensure that every animal finds the loving and welcoming environment it deserves.
