Lighting Supply Employees Help Local Animal Welfare Society

Support for a local no-kill animal shelter and rescue

Ferndale, MI – March 19, 2015

As one of their several annual charity efforts, employees of Lighting Supply Company in Ferndale spent the last month raising funds and gathering needed supplies for the Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan.

Lighting Supply Company is one of the largest commercial lighting suppliers in the nation, and many of its employees frequently come together to give back to the community. "There's more than one way to spread the light," said Allecia Boscarino, a customer service representative who heads up the company's Spirit Squad. "Besides the company's own corporate donations, our employees want to make a difference as well. Several times a year, we provide help to a meaningful cause."

Their help often includes military care packages. Each year during the holidays, they also support Turning Point, a domestic abuse shelter in Mount Clemens, MI. Now they're supporting what they consider another beacon of light for society: pets.

"So many animals are euthanized because they don't have homes," said Boscarino. "The Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan is a no-kill non-profit committed to finding homes for animals so we can avoid this problem. And it helps people find new homes for pets that they feel they can no longer keep."

According to its website, the Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan has found homes for more than 20,000 unwanted dogs and cats since its founding in 1982. The pets are examined by participating veterinarians, given vaccinations, and spayed or neutered as needed before they're settled into new homes, making it easier for animal lovers to take on a new pet.

The society also helps to educate people on responsible pet ownership, and offers a free pet food program for those needing help in caring for a new pet.
