The Kalamazoo Humane Society is happy to offer assistance to Van Buren County Animal Control. On June 29th, 2016, 117 animals were removed from the home of a couple in Lawrence. During the course of the investigation and recovery of these animals, caring for them will be an enormous burden on the staff and resources of Van Buren County Animal Control.
Immediate needs include: Towels, Dawn dish soap, puppy food both canned and dry, Clorox wipes, and baby wipes.
Through our Emergency Pet Food Bank program, we’re able to donate 10 bags of puppy food, with Pet Supplies Plus matching that donation for a total of 20 bags to be delivered today.
KHS will be accepting donations of supplies at our office at 4239 S. Westnedge and deliveries will be made on Friday July 8th and Friday July 15th with any donations collected.
Feel free to deliver the donations yourself to:
Van Buren County Sheriff Dept.
205 S. Kalamazoo St
Paw Paw, MI 49079
Van Buren County Animal Control
58040 CR 681
Hartford, MI 49057
Thank you for all of your help during this time! This is definitely an emergency situation that will require the help of our local communities while Van Buren County does what they can to house, evaluate, and care for these victims or hoarding.
It will be a long time before the outcome of these pets is determined. Please, do not ask about the adoptability of these pets. The staff at Van Buren County Animal Control are extremely busy, working to care for all of these pets. Potential adopters should wait until adoption information is released to find out what is available. Until then, please offer them your support while they work through this case.
