    Capital Area Humane Society

    TBT to when WIELAND teamed up with the Capital Area Humane Society to construct an animal adoption shelter in Lansing, MI. This shelter can house up to 400 animals at one time. In 2020 an average of 16 animals went home per day – or, one animal going home every 26 minutes the shelter is open! This is thanks to a hard-working staff and volunteers that donate about 36,000 hours of their time each year. WIELAND completed this project in January of 2017.
