Jackson, MI: Cascades Humane Society (CHS) is proud to announce a partnership with Friends of the Animals to provide adoptions to local veterans free of charge.

“We are happy to be able to help our veterans find a loving pet. It is just one small thing we can do to give back”, says Executive Director, Heather Leszczynski. “Cascades Humane Society is grateful to be giving the gift of love to veterans who sacrifice so much for our country.”

Friends of Animals, a non-profit organization in the Jackson area, is sponsoring this event thanks to a grant from the Samuel Higby and Margaret H. Camp Foundation.

“CHS is a non-profit humane society that does not receive any government funding, so our partnership with Friends of the Animals is very important to us and is what makes this adoption special possible” states Leszczynski.

Veterans may visit CHS during the month of November to adopt one dog or two cats. CHS ensures that each animal is spayed or neutered, brought up to date on vaccines, and given parasite prevention. Veterans will need to provide their driver’s license or Michigan ID showing they reside in Jackson County, and a copy of their DD214 paperwork or their Jackson County Veterans ID card.

“Animals are known for their unconditional love and their ability to reduce stress. This is important for anyone, but especially a veteran. We can’t wait to watch our pets find their forever homes with our local veterans” adds Leszczynski.

Cascades Humane Society is open noon to 6pm, Tuesdays through Saturdays. To view current available pets, visit their website at chspets.org.
