Michigan Pet Alliance Better Together
Learn More Button

Michigan Pet Alliance (MPA) is a nonprofit professional trade association representing Michigan’s animal welfare organizations and pet advocates. We work together to ensure every Michigan animal shelter, home-based rescue organization and all other groups and organizations providing services to companion animals operate using industry best practices. Uniting our voices, we speak for those who cannot speak for themselves to create state and local laws and regulations that improve care and eliminate cruelty for all companion animals in Michigan.
