Detroit Dog Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization. We are tax exempt for your generous donations. Our EIN is 27-5299891 for your tax purposes.

There are more thousands of stray dogs running loose in the streets of Detroit daily, and only 6 animal control workers to rescue them as of 2013. Over 90% of dogs picked up in Detroit are euthanized. There are simply not enough resources, funding, rescue workers, foster homes or people who are willing to adopt.

Detroit Dog Rescue was born in February 2011 after the City of Detroit refused to allow access to a network television series that would have documented the lives of dogs trying to survive in an urban environment. There is a stray dog epidemic in the city, just as there is in many cities across the United States that have had to deal with economic decline, dwindling populations and abandoned buildings. If other animal lovers around the world could see what we see on the streets of Detroit every day, we know that they would help us make a difference in this city, one dog at a time.

Detroit Dog Rescue is focused on raising awareness for the plight of these forgotten animals. We use our voices to tell their story.

At this time, as ordered by the Michigan Department of Agriculture, we are not permitted to take in stray or homeless dogs off the streets of Detroit unless called upon by Detroit Police & Fire. We currently work with local authorities, at their request, to ensure the safety of the communities of Detroit by rescuing homeless dogs, when called upon by local authorities, from the harsh elements of the urban environments where they roam. DDR's rescue operations also consist of assisting the Detroit Police and Fire Departments by recovering and rescuing abused & unwanted companions they encounter during their operations. Detroit Dog Rescue also takes in owner surrendered dogs by Detroit residents. Although, Detroit Dog Rescue does not have a shelter at this time we are diligently worki
