Please join us in acknowledging the distinguished career of Ron Blauet, Senior Educator for the Michigan Humane Society's Humane Education Department. This summer, Ron is retiring from MHS after 45 years of dedicated service to MHS and the welfare of animals.
Originally a science teacher, Ron’s career with MHS has been multi-faceted. It began as a part-time rescue driver, helping save animals from dangerous situations. Later, he worked for MHS full time and eventually managed the MHS shelters in Detroit and Westland, as well as the former MHS “north” location. He also served as interim Operations Director. For 25 years, Ron has reached approximately 10,000 schoolchildren annually through his humane education presentations and MHS shelter tours. Assisted by his dog Noodles, then Chip and now Poco, he has taught children of all ages about respect for animals, responsible pet care, and safety around animals. For decades, Ron has been a well-recognized face in the community, having represented MHS in regular television and radio segments, most recently including Tuesdays on WDIV Channel 4 and Magic 105.1, but going back decades to WWJ and WJR Radio. Ron also has played a key planning role on one of MHS’ much-loved fundraisers, the Mutt March, since its inception in 1989. In all these ways and more, Ron has truly made a lasting difference for animals within the organization and extending widely throughout the metro Detroit community!
MHS would be grateful for your help in extending Ron's legacy of compassion through a Tribute donation given in Ron's honor to the charity he has long served with unwavering passion and conviction. Thank you!
Please give what you can!
While the needs of every animal the Michigan Humane Society cares for are different, on average it costs MHS $156 to transform the life of an animal in need. Please consider sponsoring an animal today!
YOU make it possible for animals to get a second chance at life.
Whatever you can give will be appreciated, and everything helps. Thank you for your support.
