The Rescue Project!

Team Rockford

Humane Society of West Michigan adopts out over 4,000 animals annually and is ENTIRELY donor-funded. With our shared love of animals, the idea of shining a light on the organization's important work was born, and we are proud to present The Rescue Project! The Rescue Project is a colored pencil collage of animals who have been helped, or are still awaiting, their "forever home". Our hope is that as you gaze into the eyes of these beautiful animals, you will be moved to adopt one for your own, give it a home, and allow it to enrich your life. Or, if so moved, that you would consider making a donation to such a worthy organization. As a gift to thank all those who adopt one of the animals portrayed here, the portrait of that animal will gratefully be given to the rescuer.
