Join the Michigan Humane Society on Sunday, April 26, 2020 as we celebrate the 31st Annual Purrfect Bow Wow Brunch, presented by Strategic Staffing Solutions, and hosted by Fox 2 morning anchor Amy Andrews!

Not only is this premier fundraising event critical to sustaining the programs that save and transform animal lives, but it also is an opportunity to meet those who share your passion for animal welfare: the MHS Leadership team, staff, volunteers and fosters that spend thousands of hours to care for all the animals that come through our doors. Guests will enjoy live entertainment, a three-course meal, an open bar, our new President’s Reception, sponsored by DTE Foundation, and much more.

If you are unable to attend, there are other ways you may make an impressive impact:

Your Bids Make a Difference

We cannot express our gratitude enough to the organizations, individuals and MHS staff that have donated hundreds of items to our impressive silent auction. Bidding starts online on April 13 at and ends promptly at 12:35 p.m. on Sunday, April 26.

One exception: bidding on four VIP tickets to see Jay Leno at the Fox Theatre during Forgotten Harvest’s 28th Annual Comedy Night will end on April 20 as that event will be held on April 23.

Here’s just a small example of the hundreds of amazing items you can bid on to help transform animals’ lives:

  • Participate in America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade as a Cool Cat or Disco Dog, plus four Hob Nobble Gobble Tickets
  • Pingree purse co-branded with MHS – one of a kind!
  • Step-Through Bike from Detroit Bike
  • Shinola Watch
  • Private Paranormal Tour for 10 at the Whitney
  • Your pet featured in the 2021 MHS Calendar
  • Rocket Mortgage Golf Classic 2020 Daily Pass with Lending Tree Lounge Access
  • Restaurant gift certificates
  • Pet-friendly hotel stays

And much, much more!

  • Donate to the Humane House: Every animal deserves humane care, and the cost to save and transform lives is staggering. Formerly known as the Dog House, this year’s Humane House features animals whose lives were transformed by your support.
