Thirty-nine local Wendy’s restaurants helping to raise critical funds


The Michigan Humane Society (MHS) is teaming up with Wendy’s – The O’Brien Foundation to help save more animal lives. When you visit one of the 39 participating Wendy’s locations during the month of March, a $1 donation to MHS will get you a dollar off any full-sized combo meal or full-sized salad on your next visit. The dollar off coupon is in the form of a “trading card” that features a real heartwarming Detroit animal rescue story showcasing MHS’ work to find forever homes for the many animals in need. There are 16 “trading card” versions showcasing animal rescue stories.


“Wendy’s – The O’Brien Foundation is proud to have been a part of Detroit and the surrounding area for many years,” said Lisa O’Brien, marketing manager for Wendy’s – The O’Brien Foundation. “We are animal people at Wendy’s, and I have personally adopted two pups who were abandoned in Detroit. The Michigan Humane Society is the reason our pups and thousands of other homeless and abused animals are alive today. We are thrilled to partner with MHS to raise critical funds, while sharing stories that highlight the wonderful work they do for animals.”

“With this fundraising effort during the month of March, not only does your appetite win, but you will help MHS change the lives of animals in great need,” said Mike Robbins, MHS Chief Marketing Officer. “We are grateful to Wendy’s – The O’Brien Foundation for their support.”


The Michigan Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state. MHS works to end companion animal homelessness, provide the highest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values.

    Saw this on your kitty’s page the other day and think it is a great idea. We saw a documentary on Wendys a while back and it seems like they are a real nice company.

  12. It’s great that they are animal people too at Wendy’s. I thought this time I can do a good thing for animals too, but sadly the Wendy’s in my area isn’t listed as participant. I cheered too soon…
