Because of all the time that we must spend on the streets of Detroit rescuing and trapping the destitute, injured, and pregnant dogs we find, it is difficult to serve as a dog adoption organization, too. So in November of 2015, in an effort to find safe placement for all the dogs that we rescue, we partnered with some of the best shelters and rescues around the state of Michigan and beyond who were willing to accept our rescued dogs and arrange for adoptions.
We care about the long term well-being of our dogs. To determine who the best shelters were, we pulled every shelter report from the entire state and went through each one, picking only the shelters with the best records. We found that these shelters were happy to help us and were supportive of our efforts. We are continuing this effort to find more well-run shelters and rescues throughout Michigan to partner with to ensure that all of our dogs have a safe place to land.
We are extremely happy about the immediate success of this project. Since the project began, “Straight Outta Detroit” has transferred many dogs to our shelter and rescue partners throughout the state of Michigan. If you are located in or around the state of Michigan, or can provide safe transport to your location, please contact us below to inquire about a partnership. Please be aware many of the dogs we rescue as bully breeds and therefore cannot travel to states or provinces with breed specific legislation.
