WJR-AM, MERCURY PAINTS HELP PAINT DETROIT'S LARGEST DOGHOUSE

 WJR-AM, MERCURY PAINTS HELP PAINT DETROIT'S LARGEST DOGHOUSE
 DETROIT, June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of Detroit's oldest businesses, WJR Radio (760-AM) and Mercury Paints, have donated their services to help put a fresh coat of paint on the Michigan Humane Society's Detroit animal shelter. The announcement was made live on WJR's Great Weekend morning show Saturday, May 30. The date selected to "Paint Detroit's Largest Doghouse" is Saturday, June 13.
 WJR features the Michigan Humane Society's "Pet of the Week" as part of the Saturday morning show. During last Saturday's segment, WJR's Jimmy Barrett asked the Society's director of education, Ron Blauet, what his listeners could do to help the animals at the MHS shelters. Blauet made a comment regarding the exterior condition of the Detroit shelter building and how it needed a fresh coat of paint. Seconds later, a representative from Mercury Paints contacted the radio station and offered to donate paint, brushes and everything the Society will need to paint the building.
 WJR has offered to assist the Society by recruiting volunteers interested in painting the building on June 13. Several WJR air personalities will be present, including one of the new voices of the Detroit Tigers, Bob Rathbun.
 Those interested in volunteering their time to "Paint Detroit's Largest Doghouse" can sign up for one of five painting shifts by calling Lori Kane at the Michigan Humane Society, 313-852-7420. The Society's Detroit shelter is at 7401 Chrysler Drive, just east of Woodward Avenue and north of East Grand Boulevard.
 Like both WJR-AM and Mercury Paints, the Michigan Humane Society is committed to remaining in the heart of Detroit. The exterior painting of the building is just the first of many renovations the Detroit shelter will undergo in the near future.
 The Michigan Humane Society is a nonprofit organization serving animals since 1877, with three full-service shelters and charitable animal hospitals in the metropolitan Detroit area.
