Detroit’s No-Kill Mission

Your tax-deductible gifts make a direct impact in the lives of the dogs we save every day.

Abandoned, abused, orphaned and alone, YOU can give them a life.

Celebrating 10 Years as Detroit’s First No-Kill Shelter

Detroit Dog Rescue, founded in 2011, is known for taking in Detroit’s dogs and investing the time and training needed to re-home them.

Our nonprofit organization focuses on raising awareness of the mounting homeless and stray dog epidemic 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.
