We are a 501C3 non-profit organization that operates as an emergency street crew picking up stray dogs, of any breed, off the streets of Detroit that are severely injured or sick.

We are also an assisting agency to several police departments in the Metro Detroit area and we hold dogs on behalf of law enforcement that are part of animal cruelty or neglect cases.

We do not do the adopting out part of rescue as we have 21 partner organizations that adopt out the dogs that we rescue. We receive no state or government assistance we operate solely on donations.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to rescue stray, destitute, injured, or sick dogs in Detroit that need immediate and urgent medical care and to provide safe holding for dogs that are part of animal cruelty or neglect cases.
