From March 13 -15 DeVos Place will be featuring dog themed events at its venue in an effort to promote the humane treatment and responsible care of animals. There will be a table in the Grand Gallery at DeVos Place for patrons to drop off pet supplies for the Humane Society of West Michigan before heading to one of these events.
The band Winery Dogs will perform on March 13, a children’s show, Paw Patrol Live, takes the stage March 14 and 15, and the annual gala/silent auction Paws, Claws & Corks on March 15 are all on the itinerary.
Those who donate items can enter to win tickets to see dog lover Kenny Chesney live at Van Andel Arena on May 6. The winner will be picked at random from all who enter on Friday, March 17 and contacted via email. Donations will also be accepted during this time at the West Michigan Humane Society location in Walker, 3077 Wilson Dr NW.
In 2021 HSWM was able to find forever homes for over 2,500 animals. As a 100% donor-funded nonprofit, support from the community is critical to providing food, water, shelter, and medical care to animals in need.
