In November of 2015 we were awarded an amazing grant from the Wayne County Foundation. With this grant we were able to move the dogs out of crates and into spacious kennels with attached food and water bowls and comfortable beds. Thank you to the foundation for this amazing opportunity


Fostering saves 2 lives: the new foster you bring home and the homeless pet who now has room to stay in the shelter. Even if you can’t commit to becoming the lifelong companion of a homeless cat right now, you can still make a huge difference for the better! Consider fostering an animal for a few weeks or months, just until a permanent home can be found.

Our Animals need YOU
You can help in many ways. We always need money for vet bills and for spay/neuter. We also have a wish list shown below. If you are unable to help financially, or if you would like to be directly involved with animals, we would love to have you as a volunteer! If you would like more information about our volunteer opportunities, please fill out our volunteer application below. We will contact you soon to discuss how you can help! (Remember, we are all-volunteers, so please be patient with us!)


We are always looking for volunteers.
