RepairClinic employees and their furry friends help the Michigan Humane Society

From Great Danes to Chihuahuas and every breed in between, last weekend’s Mega March for Animals was a memorable time for all. A group of employees and their furry friends were among thousands of pets-loving people and their dogs at a scenic metro-Detroit park. The Mega March for Animals is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Michigan Humane Society.

This year, the Mega March for Animals raised $370,000 for the state’s largest and oldest animal-welfare organization, which works to care for Michigan’s homeless animals. Last year, the non-profit organization cared for 100,000 animals.

In addition to participating in the walk,’s Outreach group made a considerable monetary donation, which included funds raised by employee bake sales held at the company’s headquarters.

The Michigan Humane Society is one of several causes’s Outreach group is supporting this year. Here are our favorite photos from the event: staffer Jim Palson’s pet Pico earned fans at the walk.
