OH, did I mention 100 Michigan puppies are in need of transportation and horses are waiting to be petted?
From the Detroit Free Press
"The Michigan Humane Society has a unique way for dog lovers to spend the holiday — by helping welcome 100 Chihuahuas to Michigan.
The dogs are coming from an overcrowded shelter in Fresno, California, where they face a high risk of euthanasia, according to Jenna Bartow, volunteer programs coordinator for the Humane Society.
They will arrive Feb. 14, 2019 to either an airport in Toledo or Willow Run Airport in Ypsilanti. Volunteers are needed to help safely offload the animals, who will be in crates, and get them into vehicles that will take them to local shelters." READ MORE ON HOW YOU CAN HELP
