Reaching out

Helping those that rely on us

Like many of our customers, the staff at Papa Joe's Appliance Repair believes that nature is for all of us to enjoy and maintain, including the wildlife that relies on it. Whether domestic or wild, animals play a vital role in our lives.


Papa Joe’s is an official sponsor of the Howell Nature Center and supports the Humane Society of Livingston County and Always Hope Animal Rescue. Each of these organizations needs our help, and that’s why we are reaching out to you. If you can lend support to the excellent work they do, Papa Joe’s will match your donation. Or, if you prefer, donate a working appliance you no longer use, and Papa Joe’s will pick it up at no charge and donate the proceeds to one of these fine organizations.

 

Papa Joe's supports these fine organizations.

Dwarf Rabbit

Humane Society of Livingston County

Their mission is to provide pet adoption services, lost and found assistance, and offer education on humane treatment, responsible pet ownership, and overpopulation of companion animals. Their goal is to save lives!


The majority of animals arriving at a shelter are surrendered by owners who can no longer care for them. Financial hardships, personal health problems, or the death of an owner often leave few options for keeping a pet. The Human Society of Livingston County Shelter provides peace of mind for pet owners forced to leave their pets. It’s a safe haven, offering compassion, and medical care for lost, abandoned, abused, or neglected animals until a suitable, loving home is found for each one.

Always Hope Animal Rescue

Always Hope Animal Rescue is a foster-based animal rescue group from Livingston County made up solely of volunteers. Established in 2009, Always Hope has no facility as all of their animals live in pre-screened foster homes. Their animal rescue volunteers and fosters have a great deal of experience and often collaborate with other animal rescue groups. They operate entirely on donations, with no government support. All donations and adoption fees go towards the care of the animals they help place.
Always Hope finds loving forever homes for cats and dogs that are saved from high kill shelters or are no longer wanted by their owners. All animals are spayed and neutered, vaccinated, tested, and microchipped prior to adoption. They give the unwanted a new chance at life. There is Always Hope!
