Capital Area Humane Society #65For65Years

The Rathbun Agency is excited to turn 65 this year! We were founded back in 1956 by two Rathbun brothers - Jack and Jim.The agency started with no customers and one company contract, but steadily grew through referrals as a result of exceptional customer service.

We value community. The Rathbun Agency has been successful because we have immersed ourself within the #LoveLansing community. All of our agents are involved within leadership in local nonprofits and we support organizations that make Lansing it's best. Through our Quotes for a Cause initiative alone, we have been able to donate over $35,000 to sixty six local nonprofits since 2014!

And what better way to celebrate 65 years than by continuing to give back? In honor of turning 65, each of our employees will be selecting a local nonprofit and sharing why that organizations' mission hits close to home. The Rathbun Agency will be donating $65 to each employees organization as we hope to spread the word about all the amazing nonprofits in our backyard.

For Jennie Six's organization, she selected Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS). They aim to promote the treatment of companion animals through protection, placement, education and example. "I chose this organization first and foremost because I have a deep and abiding love and respect for all animals large and small. They are unable to speak for themselves and they need humans to speak and advocate on their behalf."

CAHS is committed to animal safety and welfare and they offer several programs to educate the community to prevent animal cruelty.  They also offer hands-on opportunities for animal lovers of all ages to learn about and engage with animals in order to build lifelong relationships with animals.  CAHS also solely relies on private donations so they are very active in the community and community fundraisers.  To date, with the community‚Äôs support, they have performed 3954 spay & neuter surgeries and 2015 pets have been adopted which is a 96.3% placement rate.
