Irma (now Isla) was first rescued from the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. She was adopted in 2017.

She’s the happiest girl and we don’t remember life without her! She loves her cat brother Ozzie, cuddling, walks/exploring, boat rides, pup cup ice cream cones, & playing in the snow. We’re so grateful to you for all of the work you do to protect the animals of Detroit. Isla (and we) thank you!!

Detroit Dog Rescue

Detroit Dog Rescue is Detroit's first no-kill shelter. Founded in February 2011, DDR helps between 80 to 120 dogs at any given time. Our rescue is known for taking animals in trouble that most regard as unadoptable and investing the time and training needed to rehabilitate and re-home these dogs. Detroit Dog Rescue is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and licensed by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and holds a Platinum Award of Transparency through GuideStar.
