Humane Society of West Michigan Receives Lowe's Hometowns Grant

Lowe's Hometowns is an initiative by the company to give back to communities across the country.

They've committed to donating $100,000 over the next five years to "help restore and revitalize spaces that serve as the hubs and heartbeats of communities, including neighborhood housing, parks, community centers and much more – positively impacting millions of Americans."

The Humane Society of West Michigan is one of this year's grant recipients!

You can check out all of the Lowe's Hometowns project partners here.

There is another partner in Michigan! In Detroit, Aunti Na's Village was also selected. The community development organization purchases abandoned homes and vacant lots, then transforms them into community centers, complete with outreach programs.

In 2021, three Michigan organizations were chosen to Lowe's Hometowns grants, including Battle Creek's Binder Park Zoo.

New Medical Care Facility Coming to Humane Society of West Michigan

The humane society of West Michigan will be using the funds from Lowe's to completely rebuild their medical isolation room.

The room is used to treat animals with serious infectious illnesses. They say their current isolation room is out-of-date and in need of upgrades:

This grant will allow us to build a new and cleaner, more modern area, with much better equipment and more comfortable housing for our sick animals.

How awesome! You can get updates on the project by following the Humane Society of West Michigan on Facebook.
