Little Traverse Bay Humane Society will continue to find ways to help animals who cannot help themselves. We hope you will be inspired to help, whether it’s by renewing your membership or adopting one of our shelter animals.

Animal hoarding, neglect, and abuse are not new topics. However, it seems with social networking, email and 24-hour newsfeeds, these problems are on the rise. Truthfully, thanks to technology and the ability to communicate instantly, more awareness is being focused on these issues. The result, regardless of your political affiliation, is that there are more laws to protect our animals and awareness is being heightened about the importance of their humane treatment.

Unfortunately, for a lot of animals who have been rescued from a hoarding, neglect or abuse situation, there is a long, upward battle. Animal victims typically suffer horribly from severe malnutrition, untreated medical conditions including open sores, cancers, and advanced dental and eye diseases, and severe psychological distress. Not only that, their misery can go on for years.

At Little Traverse Bay Humane Society, we have experienced first-hand the need for organizations like ours to rehabilitate these special needs animals. While we want to do everything we can to help these innocent victims, the time and expertise required for rehabilitation strains the resources needed to help our other adoptable animals find their forever homes.

Realizing that this problem will only continue to grow as restrictions get tighter, Little Traverse Bay Humane Society has committed itself to researching ways to be a leader in the animal welfare movement and we will continue to find ways to help these animals who cannot help themselves. We hope you will be inspired to help, whether it’s by renewing your membership or adopting one of our shelter animals.
