MISSION STATEMENT
There are 50,000 - 100,000 stray dogs running loose in the streets of Detroit, and only 23 animal care workers to rescue them. Over 90% of dogs picked up in Detroit are euthanized. There are simply not enough resources, funding, rescue workers, or people who are willing to adopt.

Detroit Dog Rescue was born in February 2011 after the City of Detroit refused to allow access to a network television series that would have documented the stray dog situation. There is a stray dog epidemic in the city, just as there is in many cities across the United States that have had to deal with economic decline, dwindling populations and abandoned buildings. If other animal lovers around the world could see what we see on the streets of Detroit every day, we know that they would help us make a difference in this city, one dog at a time.

Detroit Dog Rescue is focused on raising awareness for the plight of these forgotten animals. We use our voices to tell their story.

We also rescue and place abused, unwanted and abandoned companion and stray dogs. Detroit Dog Rescue does not have a shelter at this time, and we need to raise a significant amount of money in order to open one. Without a shelter, Detroit Dog Rescue must rely on a network of foster homes and friends to house the dogs we rescue. Detroit Dog Rescue also specializes in community outreach, and we work closely with local, city and statewide organizations in order to educate and involve people in this cause. Detroit Dog Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are tax exempt for your generous donations. Our EIN is 27-5299891 for your tax purposes.

Detroit Dog Rescue's mission is to open the first no-kill shelter in the detroit, and we need your help.


We want to raise $1,000,000 to open Detroit's First NO-KILL Animal Shelter
