The Belleville Area Humane Society is committed to innovation and has a proven track record of growth, serving the region for over 63 years. It has worked closely with partner organizations to achieve a countywide save rate of over 98%. Other services include a special lost and found pets program; community outreach programs such as spay/neuter, vaccines, trap/neuter/return, a compassionate care fund, and a robust pet food and supply pantry; and foster and adoption programs.
A Grey Muzzle grant will help the Belleville Area Humane Society launch a new initiative within their Wonderdog program focused specifically on senior dogs. Wonderdogs are beloved and deserve a forever home, but need some extra help (e.g., training, marketing) because of their age, breed, or temperament. These dogs receive individualized care plans designed to provide a range of support tailored to their specific needs. Casha, the first Grey Muzzle-supported Wonderdog, is currently in a specialized foster home and will undergo a full medical check-up and dental treatment to get her ready for adoption.
