We appreciate everything that you do, and thought we would send a little “pupdate” on Marmaduke – especially when we see you are participating in the Bissel “Empty the Shelters” program again.

We adopted Marm from DDR in February 2021. DDR took a chance and took care of him, and he had some amazing foster parents who fostered him until we adopted him.

We are so glad we did.

Marmaduke is a a big, gentle soul. He is a big boy – (he tips the scales at 85 lbs these days). He beat heartworm (it was tough, but he made it through) and he never complains. He loves to play and makes us laugh every day.

We know you see a lot of sadness, and wanted you to know that what you do really does make a difference.

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.
