We rescued Penelope when she was just a puppy in 2018 and she was adopted shortly after.

Attached is a picture of our Penelope (on the right). We adopted her from DDR in September 2018. She is sassy and playful but so loving. She continously annoys her older brother Dock but he still allows her to snuggle up with him once in awhile during his many naps. She loves to go to daycare and when we go to the dog park, she loves running so fast from one end to the other. We are so blessed to have her in our family.
Thank you so much for everything you all do. It does not go unnoticed.
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.
