TMSG: Capital Area Humane Society Fur Ball

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, MI (WLNS) - When it comes to helping area animals in need a local organization's volunteer team takes top honors.

6 News Evan Pinsonnault takes us inside the Capital Area Humane Society as they prepare for the always fun Fur Ball.

Lori Homer loves volunteering at the Capital Area Humane Society in Lansing.

"We have a lot of fun here, some people just like the dogs, some people just like the cats," said Lori Homer, Capital Area Human Society Volunteer.

Reporter: "How about you?"

"I like it all, haha," laughs Homer.

Every week she and a few dozen of her fellow volunteers take two hours of their time to take care of the hundred plus pets on property.

"This way they're being played with all the time, they're going for regular walks, it's just good for the animals too," says Homer.

"It's amazing how people care about what we do and help us take care of little pets like Chino here," said Julia Palmer, CEO, Capital Area Humane Society.

Palmer says volunteers like Homer are the heart and soul of her organization. And not just for the work they do at the shelter.

This season they're designing the fun and frills of the Fur Ball fundraiser.

"We're doing the Great Catsby, so we're doing that roaring 20's Gatsby theme and obviously putting an animal spin on it. Without our voluteers we couldn't do our work daily," said Palmer.

If she could be there daily, Homer says she would, especially if it meant helping all her furry friends find new ones.

"From the senior dogs to the senior cats and all the puppies and kittens, they need their forever homes," said Homer.

Events like the Fur Ball can help.
