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 the reason this event was such a success is due to for wonderful people that were our 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 sponsors.

Thank you to all who made monetary contributions or donated silent or live auction items. Thanks to Cheeky Cheese Cake 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, it's corporations, businesses, and private individuals, allows us to have saved 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 in and follow that up with being named them most outstanding shelter in it's class with a save rate of over 99%, the highest save rate in any class.

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