A Message From Our Founder
Join the excitement as we gear up for Cruisin’ 4 Critters – our first motorcycle fundraiser!! This event brings a lot of excitement to our Organization - awareness about the work we do for animals in our community will be noticed and heard!
Starting at Dick Scott’s Freedom Power Sports in Livonia, registration goes from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with kickstands up promptly at 11:15 a.m. Registration costs $25 per rider, or $35 with a passenger.
To ensure a safe ride for everyone, The Wayne County Sheriff Department will escort the riders along with Road Captains from the Motown Harley Owners Group. The route will take them out to the South Lyon Hotel for a brief stop, munchies and refreshments. While pre-registration for the ride is recommended, ride-ins are welcome up till 11:00 a.m.
Following the cruise, a picnic-styled after-party featuring pulled pork and sloppy joe sandwiches, potato salad, cole slaw and watermelon. Cookies, brownies and non-alcoholic beverages are included in the registration fee and is provided by the Blue Plate Diner of Livonia. A 50/50 drawing and classic rock music, will make for a perfect day!

The Wayne County Sheriff Department suffered a tragedy on Tuesday, August 14th, when my beloved friend and one of their own, Sgt. Lee Smith was killed in Hines Park.
"Sarge" had a lot of pride and passion and loved the four Wayne County Mounted Police horses that live in Livonia - Touch Up, Ace, Rosie and Hogan - and all of them feel the loss of their best friend, all of them know he is gone.
I wanted to turn my own grief into something positive so together with Volunteer Sue Robbins, we turned to our supporters and the local businesses to help bring a little sunshine to the Mounted Unit! Thanks to Sue , she was able to find a gently used, full-sized, refrigerator for the Mounted Officers!
Being on a mission, we made it public the needs that we wanted to fulfill for the Mounted Unit and are excited to report that the following businesses and supporters donated the following items:
Push Brooms, Shovels, Garbage Cans, Work Gloves, Extension Cords, Light Bulbs, Box Fans, Buckets, Garbage Bags, and Paper Towels. Six CASES of apples, many bunches of carrots and peppermint candies were all specifically for our Mounted Horses!
PLEASE CONTINUE TO HELP US: We will CONTINUE year round to collect the following: apples, carrots and bags of individually wrapped peppermint candies (a treat for the Horses).
We are desperately looking for donations of these items:
Box Fans and Space Heaters (winter is coming) If you have gently used ones at home, we gladly accept them!
If you think you can help us, or want to make a gift card donation, Visa, Mastercard, or Meijer gift cards will be put to good use to help the Mounted Unit and the Horses.
