Come pawty with us!  Shelter Slumber Pawty 2023

Come pawty with us at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society as we participate in this national event to raise awareness for shelter animals!  Join us for a 24-hour event taking place Saturday, March 25-Sunday, March 26, 12 p.m. to 12 p.m. with fun shelter events and the goal to raise funds for a new transport van to help us rescue more animals in need.

Through the Shelter Slumber Pawty, we are fundraising for a very important need for our organization: a new transport van. We are launching our intra-state Movin’ On Up Program through Molly’s Transport Fund. Together with our coalition of shelter partners that currently includes Bark Nation, Dog Aide, Michigan Anti-Cruelty Society, and Detroit Animal Care and Control, the program aims to rescue animals in at-risk situations and transport them to northern Michigan to find new homes. Our old van is no longer safe and reliable for long trips downstate and beyond. A new vehicle will allow us to increase our efforts to save more animal lives through transport. In 2022 alone, we rescued 372 animals directly through our Transport Program. A new transport van will allow us to save even more!

Our goal is to raise $45,000 to purchase the van. We are SO very excited to announce that we have the opportunity to participate in a matching gift campaign through Best Friends Animal Society who will match every donation, dollar for dollar, up to $22,500. Right now, you can double your impact by making a gift to this campaign.  Make your gift TODAY.
