The Mega March for Animals is our biggest event of the year – with three locations and thousands of animal lovers coming together to support the work of MHS. This event could not be possible without the support of our walkers, but also our corporate sponsors that have the same ideals and feel passionate about helping the animals.
We are very grateful for all of our sponsors, and proud to say that not only do we appreciate their support but we highly recommend their products and services as well!
Purina not only is a recurring Mega March supporter, but feeds all of our sheltered animals as well. Our veterinary staff is thrilled to have such a high quality food for all of the animals in our care, and we are able to send a bag home with new adopters. Purina has a significant shelter partnership program that we are grateful to be a part of.
Buddy’s Pizza is not only delicious, they are dog lovers and wonderful supporters of animal welfare. They created “Buddy Bones” with the guidance of our veterinary staff, which are delicious bone shaped dog treats that are good for your furry friend – plus the proceeds go to MHS!
While MHS has our own veterinary centers, we recognize that we are not in the perfect location for all of our adopters, so we have partnered with VCA Animal Hospitals to expand our reach. VCA not only provides high quality health care, they have many convenient locations. They are also proud supporters of the Mega March and will be attending all locations this year.
US Mattress is where many of our staff members get their own mattresses, and have had nothing but great experiences. They also have excellent dog beds in addition to their awesome customer service. US Mattress has been a great supporter of MHS in many venues and we are so excited to have them as part of the Mega March once again.
We all love Taco Bell, especially since they have been such great supporters of the animals! Many local Taco Bell locations feature donations boxes for MHS, and they have been a repeated sponsor of the Mega March for Animals.
American Textile Recycling Services (ATRS) places bins in multiple locations around metro Detroit where they collect old clothes, shoes and toys and recycle them. Then they give MHS and other charities part of the profits. We are lucky to have their support of the Mega March for another year!
The Petco Foundation is a major supporter of animal welfare across the country and we are grateful to have them as Mega March sponsors this year. They have also sponsored our annual animal welfare conference, the annual Telethon and even donated beautiful new kennels for our Petco adoption center.
We love and utilize many PetSafe products with the animals in our care. They are a great supporter of Mega March and have many great treats and toys that our dogs love. One of our favorites is the Busy Buddy Magic Mushroom.
While we all love our pets and wish we could spend all day with them… sometimes we have to go to work, or go on vacation and they need somewhere to stay! That’s where Canine College comes in. They offer daycare, boarding and training services for your canine friends and are a safe and dependable place for your dog to go when they can’t be with you. Their staff and customers are enthusiastic supporters of the Mega March and we love their great team spirit!
Comerica has been a repeated supporter of the Mega March, as well as great participants in the event. They have multiple teams for all their locations and they are always some of the best fundraisers!
Jim Riehl’s Friendly Automotive Group has been an awesome supporter of many MHS events – the Mega March and Telethon among them. We love them and their bulldog, Rocco!
Strategic Staffing Solutions has been a supporter of many MHS events for years. Chief Financial Officer Paul Huxley serves on our board of directors, and adopted a great dog from MHS who often joins them at the Mega March events.
MHS has multiple offsite adoption locations at area PetSmarts, and we are grateful for the support of PetSmart in this way in addition to sponsoring many of our events. In addition to hosting adoptable cats on a daily basis, they also host adoption events with dogs on the weekends.
Palmer Moving and Storage is joining us as a first time Mega March sponsor at the Belle Isle location!
We are always grateful for our media sponsors as well. Channel 7 WXYZ Detroit has been an awesome supporter of MHS and is out bright and early the morning of our events to broadcast the Mega March. Our radio sponsors 97.1 The Ticket and AMP 98.7 are awesome hosts at the events!
