Red Wings Gifts $3,500 to Cherryland Humane Society; Prospects Take a Tour

Red Wings prospects enjoyed their time off the ice Sunday in Traverse City.

The group went to the Cherryland Humane Society as part of the Hockeytown Cares program.

The tour kicked off Saturday.

That means Red Wings hopefuls will go to cities all over the state over the next three days.

Their first stop was touring the humane society to play with dogs waiting to get adopted.

After the visit, the Red Wings presented Cherryland with a check for $3,500.

One of the players told 9&10 News the guys are thrilled to be part of this.

“Maybe there’s families that want to adopt a dog but don’t know about some programs and for us to be here and do our best to promote the humane society, it’s just such a great cause,” said Red Wings prospect Ryan Kuffner.

The Wings also gave the humane society gift bags to give to people who adopt certain dogs.
