Hospice of Michigan

Hospice of Michigan is a nonprofit hospice, and we work to ensure quality of life, comfort, and peace for our patients, and provide support for their loved ones during their end-of-life experience. We serve patients wherever they call home.

We are working to build a group of volunteers in the Downriver area who are interested in visiting with patients in their homes, senior living communities, group homes, or hospitals. Visiting with a hospice patient could mean reading to them, watching TV, talking with them and sharing stories, playing music, visiting with your pet, or something unique to the patient's and your interests. The impact that you can make to assist in reducing stress for both the patient and the family can be huge, and the impact on you can be huge too.

We ask volunteers to commit to volunteer for at least one year, and 4 times/per year. Our schedule is flexible, around your availability. Volunteers must be 18 or older to visit patients, and must undergo a background check, fingerprinting, TB testing, and attend an orientation class. Apply online here.

 

P.A.W.S.

P.A.W.S. (Precious Animal Welfare Society) of Michigan is a 501 (c) (3), all-volunteer group that promotes the humane, compassionate, and responsible treatment of all animals. It is our mission to protect and care for homeless animals by placing them with loving foster families until compatible permanent homes can be found, and to engage in benevolent and charitable activities to support this goal. We are dedicated to lowering the number of animals needlessly euthanized each year in our community by promoting the spaying and neutering of all companion animals and in educating the public on the importance of responsible animal guardianship. Working in alliance with other rescue groups and animal welfare agencies we seek to develop a network of like-minded individuals who strive to eliminate animal suffering and create an animal-friendly community.

All of the animals in our program have received age-appropriate vaccines, and are surgically sterilized prior to adoption. All cats/kittens are tested for feline leukemia and FIV, and dogs are tested for heartworm if they are old enough. The adoption fees for our animals help defray the cost of these, as well as any other required, veterinary services.

Volunteer assistance and foster homes, as well as tax-deductible donations of cash and supplies, are always needed and gratefully accepted.

WAG Animal Rescue

WAG is an all-volunteer, non-profit (501c3), domestic companion animal rescue organization dedicated to placing homeless dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens in permanent, loving, responsible homes.

These very special volunteers are responsible for providing love and attention, as well as transporting the animals in their care to veterinary appointments and adopt-a-pet events. WAG pays for all necessary veterinary care, working directly with several local veterinary clinics. WAG is always in need of additional responsible foster care providers.
