The mission of Missaukee Humane Society (Lake City, Michigan 49651) is to benefit animals by providing education, guidance and shelter as needed in order to support a safe, healthy and nurturing environment for animals. Our commitment is to serve as a partner in creating and sustaining this environment for animals both in the shelter as well as in the community.


Our goal is that each animal lives in a healthy and safe home that is most capable of meeting that animal’s needs. We will provide shelter for each animal in our care until such a home is found. We will provide ongoing support as needed throughout their lifetime.

We assist the adoptive owner in preparing for the joy and responsibility of adopting an animal by providing education and guidance on successfully meeting the challenges that are a natural part of the adoption process as they arise throughout the animal’s life.

Sasha Farm (Manchester, Michigan 48158) is the midwest’s largest farm animal sanctuary. At our shelter, not only do we provide food and water, veterinary care and a roof over their heads, we also give the animal residents affection, social interaction with others of their own species, and a sense of security.


SASHA’s founders, Dorothy Davies and Monte Jackson, started saving animals a couple decades ago. Among the first bunch was a nine-month-old pet shop puppy that a family had purchased, but couldn’t appropriately care for. A female Border Collie/Spaniel mix with a white tip on the end of her tail, she quickly worked her way into Monte’s and Dorothy’s hearts. She was the farm dog in charge of it all, keeping tabs on every other animal that came to live at the farm over the years.

Sasha was a wonderful canine companion, a true friend, who lived and loved for 17 years. In honor and in memory of this beloved dog, her caretakers chose to name their sanctuary “SASHA Farm.” The name SASHA is also an acronym for the animal rescue operation – Sanctuary And Safe Haven for Animals.

The sanctuary currently shelters over 200 animals, each with its own story to tell. Some were dumped and discarded, some left to die. They have come from unhappy circumstances, often mistreated or neglected, but now have a safe, permanent home at SASHA Farm.

Home Fur-Ever (Detroit, Michigan 48210) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization formed in 1983 for the express purpose of preventing cruelty to animals. This includes picking up and caring for abandoned, neglected, and unwanted so-called “disposable” animals. Home Fur-Ever also provides educational instruction and opportunities to school children and adults in the proper care and treatment of animals.

The rescue relies on volunteers and donations to keep its efforts going. The rescue also relies on a network of foster families who keep pets for adoption in their own homes while they care for existing medical issues, assess their personalities, provide socialization with humans and other animals, and often provide behavioral training.

Home Fur-Ever takes in all kinds of pets of various breeds and ages, concentrating on saving as many lives as possible. The rescue provides all of the animals with proper medical care, such as shots, deworming, neutering (to prevent the addition of unwanted puppies and kittens), heartworm testing, and preventative medication.
