Meet Franklin, the star of our new community driven beer project. He's a charismatic Pitbull mix that we rescued and is cherished member of the Petoskey Brewing Family. In honor of Franklin we are proud to donate 10% of all proceeds of Rescue Ale to Michigan- Based humane societies. Raise a glass (or can) to Franklin and all the other amazing furry friends that bring joy and inspiration to our lives!

The Humane Animal Treatment Society (HATS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization that is independently operated, serving the Mid-Michigan area. HATS is contracted to be the sole provider of all animal care and adoption services at the Isabella County Animal Control facility.

Bark Nation (Detroit)

The largest part of Bark Nation’s daily expenditures and volunteer hours is dedicated to our #PitnessProtection program. This program encompasses dogfighting investigations, seizure, live-evidence sheltering and #LifeAfterDogfighting placement. Our P2Shelter is state registered, and provides reprieve and healing to up to 100 amazing survivors of dogfighting at a time. We uphold strongly humane sheltering, enrichment, force-free handling and are insanely generous with our swooning and kisses. While some dogs have longer or shorter stays with us, the average stay as live-evidence thus far is 4.5 months.

Capital Area Humane Society (Lansing)

The Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS) was founded in 1936, with a mission to promote the humane treatment of companion animals through protection, placement, education, and example. We serve the tri-county region of Eaton, Clinton, and Ingham Counties in Michigan and beyond. CAHS has formed many partnerships with local rescues and animal controls. We currently transfer animals in for adoption from over 50 organizations. Most of these organizations are in our local region, but we also transfer pets, especially puppies, from the southern states. In addition, we partner with local animal control agencies on cruelty investigations.

U-Paws (Upper peninsula)

We are a local non-profit organization run and staffed by your neighbors.  We make decisions on caring for homeless, unwanted, abandoned and abused domestic animals based on what we believe is best for them.  We have no affiliation with any larger group and we receive no funding from any larger group that might influence our decisions or actions. We advocate only for the animals in our care to help them find their forever home with you. UPAWS does not receive operating funds from any governmental agency. We rely on donations from our neighbors and friends to make our efforts possible.  We save consistently 98% of the animals who come to us – which is an award-winning success story.   We want to educate everyone on proper animal care so there soon won’t be the three percent who come to us too sick or wounded to be saved.  It’s your support that makes this dream possible.

Humane Society of West Michigan has a long history of promoting humane treatment and responsible care of animals in West Michigan.  The organization, originally known as Humane Society of Kent County, is one of the oldest animal shelters in Michigan and was first organized in 1883 by a group of citizens who shared a concern about abused, neglected and homeless animals. The Humane Society of West Michigan is serving Kent County, other counties in Michigan, and other states overpopulated with companion animals in need of homes. We at Humane Society of West Michigan have a vision to build a healthy, safe, and compassionate community where all animals receive the care they deserve. We strive to build strong, long-lasting bonds between animals and people through adoption, humane education, and services to keep pets and families together. Our commitment to further advance diversity, equity, and inclusion, in all facets, is something we aspire to do each and every day! Through education, example, placement, and protection, we strive to provide companion pets and those that care for them with the expertise, and resources to ensure the highest quality care for our region’s animals.
