Michigan Pet Fund Alliance

The Michigan Pet Fund Alliance (MPFA) is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax exempt charitable organization. MPFA was formed to end the killing of healthy and treatable homeless cats and dogs in Michigan animal shelters. The MPFA vision is to collaborate with Michigan animal shelters and rescue organizations to achieve No Kill through training, technical assistance, education, and advocacy.

To achieve these goals, Michigan Pet Fund Alliance:

* Provides consultation and resources to individuals and advocacy groups attempting to effect changes at animal shelters in their communities.

* Produces the biennial Getting to the Goal,  Michigan’s only No Kill conference.  Often on non-conference years, specialized workshops are offered. See prior years’ events here).

* Publishes annual Michigan Save Rate Report for Shelters, using Michigan Department of Agriculture Reports to determine save rates for each licensed shelter.  See reports here.

* Presents annual awards to shelters based on Save Rate Report. See categories and winners here.

* Developed and administers the Michigan Rescue Certification Program which recognizes rescue groups committed to using best practices and a code of ethics, facilitates collaboration between rescues and shelters thereby saving more animals, and assures that a certified rescue organization is reputable.

* Provides keynote speakers to No Kill community workshops throughout the state.

* Upon request, assists shelters with securing grants for specialized programs, such as Trap Neuter Return programs for feral cats.
