Grants for Michigan Certified Rescues
Judith Middleton Kroon loved animals: all types of animals, from those in the wild to those in your home. So it was not a surprise to her family, upon the premature passing of Judith in 2012, that she had asked them to distribute the majority of her estate to help the animals she loved. Several dozen animal welfare organizations benefitted from Judith’s estate, and the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance was one.
