Detroit Dog Rescue stands out among the pack
In 2017 alone, Detroit Dog Rescue — this year’s Best Local Charity — saved almost 300 homeless animals from Detroit Animal Control and provided free vaccination and pet wellness clinics to 2,000 homes.
“What keeps us going is the promise that one day, though education, outreach, collaboration, and dedication, we can make Detroit the no-kill city we know it can be!” says the organization’s executive director, Kristina Rinaldi.
With a team of more than 150 volunteers and fosters, the nonprofit cares for up to 125 dogs at a time at its Detroit facility, and works around the clock to train traumatized animals, provide programs for dogs in hospice care, and offer pet services to low-income Detroiters.
Rinaldi says a larger DDR facility will open in 2019, meaning even more “happy tails” are to be expected. But, in the meantime, donations, fostering, adopting, and volunteering, is always appreciated.
“We welcome everyone’s support,” Rinaldi says. “Our dogs need friends!”
