What our dogs and supporters are saying!
I'm the most spoiled! It's me, Jefferson! Detroit Dog Rescue took me in after I was found in an abandoned house. I was starving, I hadn't eaten anything in so long! Now, I live with DDR's shelter manager and I love cheese pizza! I'm living the best life!
Did you know that the Detroit Dog Rescue team works really hard to improve Detroit? Their dedication to Detroit Animal Care and Control has saved hundreds of dogs from euthanasia and I am one of them!

Detroit Dog Rescue says, SENIOR DOGS ROCK! They took me in when I was nine years old with all kinds of health issues and still found me a home. I'm happy and smiling now! Thanks DDR!

I remember the day my human mom passed away from cancer. There was so much noise, so many people, and I didn't know where I was going to go. I heard them talk, I heard them say, no one could take me.
Thank you, DDR, for loving an old dog like me and helping me live out my last days with so much compassion!
Mike the Dog

We've had Zeke for about six weeks and he's been a wonderful addition to our home.  He is gentle, well behaved, and gets along well with our older dog and two cats.  He walks three miles every day and just completed an extensive dog training school. We love having him.

It's me, Jax! Someone tied to me to a fence in Detroit...and well...they never came back. As soon as Detroit Dog Rescue heard about me, they came right away to rescue me. I was adopted by the best mom in the world and we snuggle every night. Thanks DDR!


It was cold in the abandoned house.Thankfully, Detroit Dog Rescue came for me. Their friends at the doctor fixed me up, fed me, and DDR found me my forever home in Farmington Hills, Michigan. It's amazing what a little love and food can do! Thanks Detroit Dog Rescue!
