DETROIT, MI – Backing up his belief that animals are an essential part of the family, Detroit attorney Mike Morse today announced a $100,000 donation to the Michigan Humane Society’s Cruelty Investigation Department. Morse announced his gift following a ride-along with the cruelty investigation team.
“I saw firsthand the work these dedicated professionals do,” Morse said. “They’re in the community every day educating and enforcing. And contrary to popular belief, their goal isn’t to take an animal away from its family but rather to keep it safe and with its family. Not only do they protect abused and abandoned animals, they also provide supplies for local families in need with pet food, straw and more.”
“This is an incredible investment in our cruelty investigation work in Detroit,” said Matthew Pepper, MHS president and CEO. “This gift will save countless lives and provide critical support to families. It shines a light on animal cruelty and our efforts to be a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves.”
Morse is no stranger to community involvement and initiatives. He is a champion for Detroit public school students, having provided more than 100,000 backpacks and other supplies in the past four years. Asked for a comment, Morse said, “It’s simple. You live in a community, you do your part. Maybe if I step up to try and make a difference, others will too.”
Today the Michigan Humane Society’s Cruelty Investigation Department, local families, and at-risk animals are Morse’s latest winners.
