EAST LANSING, Mich. — Finding “furever” homes for companion animals living at the Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS) is not easy. That's why MSU Federal Credit Union (MSUFCU) decided to help.


In partnership with CAHS, MSUFCU offered a special promotion called Get a Home, Give a Home. Participants who received mortgage financing through MSUFCU could adopt animals in need from CAHS with the Credit Union covering the adoption fee or making a donation in their name. This resulted in a $2,000 total donation for the organization.


In addition, Credit Union employee, Kieran, recently named MSUFCU’s Volunteer of the Year for 2018, was given the opportunity to choose a local charity to receive a $500 donation on behalf of the Credit Union. Kieran selected CAHS, bringing the donation to the organization to $2,500. Finally, a team of MSUFCU employees chose to donate $250 to CAHS, bringing the grand total to a $2,750 donation made to the organization.


“We are pleased to continue our support of the Capital Area Humane Society,” said Deidre Davis, MSUFCU’s Chief Marketing Officer. “Our partnership with this great organization goes back many years. We embrace the role we play in strengthening our community, and are proud to help our members find homes as well as help some furry friends find homes, too.”


CAHS promotes the humane treatment of companion animals through protection, placement, education, and example. In 2018, 3,724 animals were placed in forever homes. For more information about CAHS, visit cahs-lansing.org.
