About MCTV's Organization of the Month
Charitable behavior can lead to psychological, spiritual, and emotional well-being benefits for the giver. Besides helping the community and being a part of a greater good, charitable donations are tax deductible, can give you a sense of purpose and can help keep you informed about issues of social injustice. Each month, MCTV highlights two local non-profit organizations. We have donation boxes set up in our lobbies and have information on our websites about each charity, along with links to their respective websites. MCTV’s commitment to charitable causes creates new ways for you to find, learn about, and support local charities. We try to make a bigger difference in the causes you care about the most and become partners with the organizations in order to bring about change. Donate with confidence to these organizations. They are low-risk organizations, have targeted goals, function with good governance and have transparency policies. To learn more, visit our community involvement page.
About the Wayne County Humane Society
The Wayne County Humane Society, Inc. exists to provide compassion to animals, to measurably reduce companion animal overpopulation and to take a leadership role in educating and promoting humane values. A quality, functioning shelter is a pillar in our county’s animal welfare efforts and adds value to the quality of life in our community. It is a joint venture between the humane society and the municipalities it serves. The Wayne County Humane Society strives to maintain a place of safety for healthy adoptable animals; a temporary home for the lost or homeless; a haven for the mistreated, and neglected or abused animals of the Wayne County area.
