***** Important Update from Bowl-4-Animal Rescue Hosts*****
With our Yappy Hour, followed by our 3-month pledge drive and huge #B4AR 2014 event, we were able to raise $42,000 for the Michigan Animal Adoption Network / Animal Care Network and Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter! AMAZING!!!!!!
We have two more weeks to try to hit that $50,000 goal. If you would like to help, visit www.Bowl4AnimalRescue.org!
THANK YOU. ~Michelle and Aleta
This years Bowl-4-Animal Rescue was a huge success! Everyone had a great time bowling, eating, and winning prizes while raising money for the animals.We would like to thank everyone who came out to help the Michigan Animal Adoption Network and Friends For the Dearborn Animal Shelter raise money. All proceeds go directly to the groups to help the animals.We would also like to thank all the volunteers that work year round to make this event a huge success. So much is done behind the scenes leading up to the event and it couldn’t be accomplished without great volunteers!
The biggest thank you in the world goes out to Michelle Mullen and Aleta Sill for being the best hosts anyone can ask for. They go beyond the call of duty when it comes to animals and it shows in the energy and time they put in to make this event successful. Without them, this event would not be the great fundraiser that it is.
We would also like to send a big thank you out to Molly Masson and Alana Appel for joining us.
Molly brought her rescued dog Lettie to the event. Lettie was rescued from an abandoned home when she was a puppy. After a lot of love, care, and food, Lettie became a permanent family member in the Masson household.

Alana is a remarkable young lady. She raised over $400.00 by herself for the Michigan Animal Adoption Network by collecting bottles and cans and obtaining donations. What a great world it would be if all kids were that generous and kind!
Thank you again to EVERYONE that volunteered, donated, bowled, supported, sponsored, etc. Without you this event would not happen!
When we receive final totals on amount raised and the amount of food raised we will post it.

Spaying and Neutering is Important
Every single cat and dog that gets spayed and neutered makes a difference toward achieving EVERYONE’s goal of No More Homeless Pets.
Every single cat and dog that gets spayed and neutered makes a difference in the pet overpopulation program and the animal homelessness epidemic.
Every single cat and dog that gets spayed and neutered before adoption, before being rehomed, before being given away, before being sold MAKES A DIFFERENCE!!!

Thank you to JJ Fabre and everyone else at the World Animal Awareness Society for helping to bring the problems of animal abuse and overpopulation to the general public by making these videos.
We are truly grateful for all the people who volunteer their services to the Michigan Animal Adoption Network and to the Animal Care Network. Without them, we would not be able to accomplish the things that we do.
We would like to thank Jamie Kinnison for the wonderful, professional video that she created for the Michigan Animal Adoption Network and the Animal Care Network. She donated her supplies, time and knowledge to make this video a reality and we are grateful that she did.
We are very proud to be featured in The Best Friends Animal Society magazine. This article highlighted our Animal Care Network program.
__________________________________________________________ This is a poem written from the heart by Animal Care Network Manager Pam and also through ACN volunteers eyes. This is a very difficult, sad thing to witness. Unfortunately we are witness to it each day and it breaks our hearts!!! ACN does all that we can to rescue, educate, assist and make their lives better and more comfortable, if even for a moment. Even if our only option is to offer a humane and dignified euthanasia.
