(WXYZ) - It's one of our favorite events of the year!
WXYZ will once again host the Michigan Human Society's Valentine's Telethon Thursday, February 13.
Our own morning anchor Alicia Smith will host the telethon, and it will air during the commercial breaks Thursday between 5 a.m. and 11:30 p.m.
It will feature adoptable pets and stories that show how your support can make a lifesaving difference for area animals.
"So many animals in our community rely on the Michigan Human Society, and this extremely cold snowy winter only increases the need for our care services," Michigan Humane Society Chief Cruelty Investigator Debby MacDonald said.
Donations can be made February 13 online at www.michiganhumane.org/telethon , or by calling (855) MHS-GIVE (647-4483) 24 hours a day.
