Rescue Certification

The Michigan Rescue Certification Program is designed to:

  • Save more lives and maximize the capacity of animal shelters
  • Establish best practice and a code of ethics
  • Encourage more collaboration between rescues and shelters
  • Advance Michigan to become a no-kill state

This wholly voluntary program was launched at the 2012 Getting to the Goal No Kill Conference.
