    Thank you for attending the Filing Animal Neglect Complaints webinar and learning more about our Michigan Laws. I hope everyone all learned a few new things.

    I and wanted to make sure you have the presentation for reference, as well as, the flyers The files are posted to our Meetup. You can follow this link.­

    The flyers are a great reference or “Checklist” for someone that either purchased a sick dog or needs to file a complaint against a bad breeder. Please join our next webinar on February 4th “Pet Friendly Pet Store” and learn how to ensure your local store stay humane by pledging not to sell cats and dogs.­
