Rainbow Child Care Center Introduces Kids for Canines Program to Support Animals in Need | Pets
Each year thousands of animals are surrendered to local Humane Society shelters in Michigan. These Humane Society shelters rely solely on donations to sustain their operations, making the need for essential pet supplies substantial.
To aid these animals in need, Rainbow Child Care Center, a leading early childhood education provider, is introducing its Kids for Canines program. Rainbow is teaming up with humane societies across the state, including the Humane Society of West Michigan locally, to collect essential pet supplies for dogs waiting to be placed in their loving forever homes.
Kids for Canines will launch May 4 during the Humane Society’s Be Kind to Animals Week, and run through mid-June. As part of the program, the Humane Society and a special four-legged guest will visit Rainbow Child Care Centers across the state to raise awareness about animals in our homes and communities, and to celebrate the unique bond between humans and animals.
“My wife and I have a great passion for working with children and animals,” says Patrick Fenton, CEO of Rainbow Child Care Center. “The Kids for Canines program gives our students an opportunity to support their community by assisting wonderful organizations, such as the West Michigan Humane Society.”
During the campaign, Rainbow is seeking to collect pet supplies such as blankets, puppy training pads, dog food, and heavy duty dog toys for donation to the humane society.
Rainbow encourages those in the community who would like to join Kids for Canines in supporting dogs awaiting adoption to donate items directly to the West Michigan Humane Society. For more information on your local humane society, visit www.hswestmi.org.
