We at Aleta Sill’s Bowling World and Your Bowling Coach began fundraising in 2006 upon a suggestion to get involved in the community in a charitable way. It awakened a deep passion to help animals in need.
Blessed to see growth in our fundraising efforts, in 2017 we created our own organization called Michigan Animal Welfare Foundation, now a 501c3 non profit, to efficiently process the level of funds raised.

ABOUT THE CHARITIES WE SUPPORT
The mission of the Friends For Animals of Metro Detroit (FAMD) is to provide loving care and sanctuary to animals, encourage adoptions and reunions, and promote respect, responsibility and compassion for all animals. Learn more.
The mission of the Michigan Animal Adoption Network (MAAN) is to provide proper housing, straw, food and supplies to animals living in outdoor conditions as well as offer assistance to families with animals living indoors. MAAN targets low-income communities by decreasing dog and cat homelessness and overpopulation through low-cost sterilization programs and other resources to families in need. MAAN also provides education on proper pet care to pet owners. Learn more.
Cat Tail Acres is a sanctuary for feral and unwanted cats. We are not a traditional shelter and do not accept socialized adult cats or kittens who are more adoptable. We believe all of God’s living and breathing creatures deserve a right to a good life. Learn more.
Join us to raise some fun – and funds – for animals in need!
We are passionate about helping less fortunate animals who need us. We strive to be a voice for them, to raise money and awareness to help them find a better life; a forever home. Together, we can do so much for than we could ever do ourselves. Join us for some fun and all for a great cause!

“I do not think I could get this involved or work as hard for any other cause. I think about those less fortunate animals out there every day and know that we can do more with our community of friends than we could possibly do ourselves to help them.” — Michelle Mullen
