Delays in 2020
Please note that there are delays with reviewing Michigan Rescue Certification Program applications due to COVID-19 as well as re-organization within Michigan Pet Fund Alliance. Acceptance of new applications was closed as of 9/2/2020 and will resume in 2021. We appreciate your patience during this time.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. They are reviewed by the certification committee within 30 days of receipt and the applying organization is contacted.
The certification committee schedules a video chat with the applying organization to better understand the organization and its policies and for the organization to get answers to specific questions that it may have regarding the program.
Follow-up questions are asked or the applying organization is asked to agree to items that may be missing within their organization.
Approval or Denial
The application with commentary from the certification committee is sent to the Board of Directors of the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance for final decision. Applications can take 1-3 months for processing.
