On behalf of the Humane Society of Midland County we would like to thank everyone that attended or supported our Ties and Tails Gala, held on October 21st, at the Midland Country Club.

A large part of one of the reasons this event was such a success is due to the wonderful people who served as honorary chairs, Melanie Kalmar, Lynn & Larry Looby and Dr. Blake & Tammy Bergeon. Thank you to our auctioneer, Mike Furlo, our entertainment, Brett Mitchell & the Giant Ghost and our Emcee Sara Simnitch of WNEM TV 5.

Of course none of this could happen without the support of our graciuos sponsors.

Thank you to all who made monetary contributions or donated silent or live auction items. Thank you to Cheeky Cheesecakes and Cottage Creamery for dessert, Rachael of All trades for Décor design, Studio 137 for capturing the photos and Poochies Pit stop for hosting the dog spa.

The support of this community, its corporations, businesses, and private individuals, have allowed us to save over 15,000 animals in five years. It also provides us the platform to be named the most improved shelter in the state of Michigan and follow that up with being named the most outstanding shelter in its class with a save rate of over 99%, the highest save rate in any shelter in the state.

Thank you for your continued support. Please save the date for the 8th Annual Ties and Tails Gala to be held October 20, 2018.
