I wish the Stiles family all the best and I hope they can help many many animals. This is a great cause.

I hope that there's a kindly lawyer out there who will help them, for FREE, get their 501 (c)(3) status set up as well as other legal protections they may need.

What a great program, and I am so happy to see people trying hard to help pets. Animals don't get a bailout, they don't get a stimulus package, and they are usually left behind in times of need. This is a really great program, and my wife and I will be donating to help.

It is so refreshing to see people giving back to pets in need. They love us unconditionally and MANY times we do not reciprocate that love back because "they aren't human". My pets are my children and I love them. Thank you to the Stiles family for helping out. You are angels in disguise.

They are not just giving back to the pets. These animals mean so much to the families, especially the elderly. Sometimes that is the main reason they get up in the morning. Same thing with some of the unemployed who are starting to get really down in the dumps. This family is doing a great job for the pets AND the people who love & need them. I agree - you are angels in disguise. Bless you - keep up the good work. And to anyone who can, DONATE!

Is it really that difficult to spell out "Spring" for Spring Lake. Who invented "Sp." short for Spring, geez.

I don't know if you saw on Fox 17 News on Tuesday night there is also a program starting next week in Kent County called the Kibble Konnection and is a division of Humane Society of Kent County (all volunteer) that will be kicking off next week with the first distribution to begin in March. Hopefully we can get all the counties on board to feed all the animals in need.
