Dilly is very excited to have a team back in this year's Mutt March 2017!
Hi - my name is Dilly, and I was picked up off the streets of Detroit by the wonderful MHS Rescue Team. I was very hungry and looking for food, when I ended up getting a pickle jar stuck on my head - *sigh*. Some nice folks saw me & called in MHS rescue who responded. I was very scared at first...I kept running from them - but fortunately they were persistent and after a few days finally caught me! Whew, even though I was still scared, I couldn't have been more grateful to them once back at the shelter for saving me. They had food and water and gave me lots of love every day as I healed and got better.
Finally, I was well enough to be placed up for adoption. While waiting for my forever home, I participated in the Pawsitive Start program. Volunteers trained me on basic thinking skills and behaviors, like to focus and wait patiently for my next cue, to go lay down on a blanket, to touch a target such as a nail file board that helped trim my nails, and my favorite... touching the Easy Button. That one is the most fun for me!
Then, it happened - I finally found my forever home! Life couldn't be better right now - I have soft, cushy beds, lots of toys, and lots of love. I also have a part time job now, too - I'm the Greeting Committee at my people's store in Canton - Wild Birds Unlimited Nature Shop (it's only part time, because I like to nap in the sun!!). I get to say Hello to everyone that walks in the store. It's a good thing I learned all my manners back at the shelter, even though they do help remind me the rules when I get a little too excited. But, hey... I'm loving life now, so can you blame me??
I do hope you'll support my efforts for my friends still at the shelter - MHS is the best! Hope to see you at the Mutt March, or sometime walking through the Grosse Pointe neighborhood, or in Canton at the store!
Please give generously!
Please consider giving in support of my efforts to help homeless, injured and neglected animals in our community, like Dilly.
Every day, dozens of animals arrive at the doors of the Michigan Humane Society with nothing more than hope for a better future. The MHS Cruelty Investigation and Rescue team often finds animals locked up in foreclosed homes, or wandering the streets, scared and hungry. With the economy struggling, it is no question that when people suffer, animals can suffer. But MHS is there to take these animals in, and provide them with food, shelter, medical care and love.
On average, it costs MHS $192 to transform the life of an animal in need. But with no state or federal funding, and no affiliation with any national humane organizations, it is solely the support of the community that keeps the organization going. Please, help me in supporting this critical work that helps homeless animals find warmth, comfort and unconditional love with a forever family. Any amount you may be able to give will help tremendously - it all adds up! Or, come join me at the Mutt March to show your support for animals in need!
Thank you for your support!
