Reaching Out to Help Those That Rely On Us
Papa Joe’s Appliance Repair is an official sponsor of The Howell Nature Center. They believe, as we do, that nature is for all of us to enjoy and maintain, including the wildlife that rely on it.
But beyond that, we also spend much of our efforts helping The Humane Society of Livingston County and The Last Chance Rescue. Whether in the wild or domesticated, animals play a vital role in our lives.
But all of these fine organizations need your help to continue the excellent work they do. That’s why we are reaching out to you.
Make a donation to any of these organizations and Papa Joe’s will match it!
Or if you prefer, you can donate any unused, working appliance that you have and Papa Joe’s will pick it up for free and donate the proceeds to whichever of these two organizations you choose. If you do not designate either organization, the donations will be divided evenly between them.
We would like to send out a special Shout Out to the following to thank her for their donations for such a wonderful cause, The Last Chance Rescue in Howell.
A Message From The Howell Nature Center
This Owl was rescued on Friday morning, 1/12/17. His leg was caught in the trap shown. You can only imagine the pain and suffering this poor animal went through. He is recovering at the Howell Nature center and will soon be able to rejoin his friends in the wild. NEVER use a trap for any reason!
The Howell Nature Center
For 50 years, the Howell Nature Center has provided a comprehensive education, recreation, and wildlife facility to individuals and groups from all over the Midwest. Situated on 270 acres between Howell and Pinckney, offerings include retreat and meeting facilities, summer camps, Christian camps, wildlife rehabilitation and education programs, a nature zoo, team building, high-adventure challenge programs, Heifer Global Village, overnight group accommodations, and special events. Owned and operated by the Presbytery of Detroit, the Howell Conference & Nature Center is a non-profit organization funded primarily through programs, private donations, and special events.
Humane Society of Livingston County
Our mission is to assist the community by providing pet adoption services, lost and found assistance, and education on humane treatment, responsible pet ownership and overpopulation of companion animals.
Our Goal – Saving Lives!
There are many reasons animals end up in shelters. Financial hardships, personal health problems, or death of an owner often leave very few options for people to keep their pets. The majority of animals coming into our shelter are surrendered by owners who can no longer care for their pets. Our shelter provides peace of mind for these pet owners as well as a safe haven, compassion, and medical care for lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals until we can find a suitable, loving home for each one.
Last Chance Rescue
All animals deserve the right to a happy, healthy environment. Last Chance Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization committed to saving the lives of animals that otherwise would be destroyed.
We have been a licensed 501(c)3 non-profit organization for over 17 years, and have rescued over 27 thousand animals. Most from kill shelters or from research lists. We are diversified in taking in all types of dogs/cats/birds/rabbits – including providing medical, spay/neuter and giving them a chance at life and love.
