All too often this happens. A lot of people say, “Kristina, as a no-kill shelter you get to choose your intake!”
That’s not true in Detroit.
We don’t get the full details of what’s on city trucks when they arrive at our door, this morning this sweet stray was waiting for us on the lawn, and in the winter the crates with animals start being left at our door. So, the thought of open or closed intake here in Detroit is well…different. It’s a challenge that we continually face.
So many challenges.
So, to lessen the burden on an overcrowded animal control that has faced health issues, we do the stray hold, look for an owner, perform medical and eat the costs of stray holds for the city of Detroit. The water, electric, medical and care all provided for by our non-profit at no cost to residents.
Even on days when we can’t get to the city shelter to pull, it still never stops and we’ve remained committed to finding solutions. I’m proud of that and I thank YOU.
