Looking to get your children involved in a good cause? Kids can help out at the local animal shelter

There just might be a furry friend waiting for you at Michigan Humane

Pet of the Week - How kids can help animals in need on Live in the D

It’s no secret that most kids love pets, and there’s a way they can take that passion and help local animals up for adoption.

Anna Chrisman from Michigan Humane explained that kids can care for pets by creating a craft for their furry friends, and they can look within Michigan Humane for volunteer opportunities, as well.

For those who are part of a scouting troop, Michigan Humane would love to help you earn animal-focused badges.

Chrisman came on “Live In the D” to talk about all this, and she was joined by this week’s Pet of the Week, a 10-month-old cat named Swiss Miss.

Chrisman said Swiss Miss is very social, and would work well in a house with kids or other pets.

As the Pet of the Week, Swiss Miss’s adoption fees will be covered by the Mike Morse Law Firm.
