Michigan Humane Society
“We’re the largest and oldest animal welfare organization in the state, and we care for tens of thousands of animals each year. Our Mission: To end companion animal homelessness, to provide the hightest quality service and compassion to the animals entrusted to our care, and to be a leader in promoting humane values”
Home FurEver is a non-profit, no-kill, foster based canine rescue that takes in all dog breeds. The group was officially started in 2003 and has rescued, rehabilitated and re-homed almost 4,500 dogs and puppies. We do not discriminate against any dog or any breed; we give everyone a chance to live a normal healthy life.
Our dogs primarily come from the rough streets of Detroit. We find some as strays running the streets or in abandoned houses or automobiles. There are occasions when a dog rescued is in very poor health. Other groups may humanly euthanize the dog, but our dedicated vets do everything they can to save our dogs so they can start their lives over with a loving family. We also take in dogs periodically from kill shelters, other rescues and owner surrenders. All of our financial support for food and veterinary care is from generous donations and fundraising. At any given time, Home FurEver could have anywhere from 150-200 dogs that are in foster care. That makes us one of the largest foster based rescues in the metro area. That also means that we are always looking for more donations, more volunteers and more foster parents. Our mission is simple; give every dog a chance to find its FurEver home.
(We fostered then adopted our little cutie Bear from here. They were all saints)
Mission: To create a state-of-the-art, no kill animal center in Detroit.
Detroit Dog Rescue is focused on raising awareness for the plight of the forgotten, homeless and stray dogs of Detroit.
There are more than 50,000 homeless and stray dogs running loose on the streets of Detroit. With only twenty-three City of Detroit Animal Control Officers to perform rescue operations, nearly 90% of dogs picked up by the city are euthanized. With limited resources and funding allocations to humane animal rescue operations, Detroit Dog Rescue is a small group of highly committed individuals dedicated to help make a difference in the city, one dog at a time.
Detroit Dog Rescue focuses on raising awareness of the mounting homeless and stray dog problem in Detroit, along with advocating for humane rescue alternatives such as no-kill sheltering, foster care and adoptions, pet identification and healthy pet population control through spay and neutering. 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. We also respond to calls to assist the Detroit Police Department, Highland Park Police Department, Hamtramck Police Department, Fire Departments, the City Administration, as well as hundreds of residents who have asked for our help.
Detroit Dog Rescue is a 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 Detroit, and we need your help.
