Welcome to a special Friday edition of the Brothers Leather Supply Co. blog! What could possibly be going on that would call for us to create a blog post on a Friday? How about a unique donation that Brothers is making; dog collars! This past week, Brothers has donated ALL of our excess dog collars to the Humane Society of West Michigan, leaving only the few in our flagship store as the remaining dog collars that we are carrying.
Many of us have heard of the Humane Society of West Michigan, but what exactly does the Humane Society do? Founded in 1883, the mission of the Humane Society of West Michigan has been to increase proper treatment and responsible care of animals through placement and education. They are not a small operation either; last year, the Humane Society of West Michigan found homes for nearly 3,800 pets. Truly an amazing feat!
So why did we decide to donate all of our dog collars to this wonderful organization? Because that number of 3,800 adopted pets is up 700 animals from 2015, and there’s no sign of slowing down. To add to that, the Humane Society of West Michigan operates purely off of donations, an amazing feat considering how large the organization is. We will be helping collar over a hundred dogs as they eagerly wait for their new homes.
If you would like to adopt from the Humane Society of West Michigan, visit their adoption page or stop in at their address of 3077 Wilson Dr. NW in Grand Rapids. If you are interested in volunteering with the Humane Society of West Michigan, visit their volunteer page.
Make sure to check in next Wednesday as I talk a little bit about men’s grooming products….
Until next time.
