DETROIT —The Rainbow Child Care Center, a leading early childhood education provider, is teaming up with humane societies across the state, including the Michigan Humane Society, to collect essential pet supplies for dogs in shelters waiting to be placed in homes.
The Kids for Canines will launch on Monday 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.
“The Kids for Canines program gives our students an opportunity to support their community by assisting wonderful organizations, such as the Michigan Humane Society,” says Patrick Fenton, CEO of Rainbow Child Care Center.
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.
Fenton encourages those in the community who would like to join Kids for Canines in supporting dogs awaiting adoption to donate items directly to the Michigan Humane Society.
