Rescue Partnerships

An adoption or “pull” to a rescue group frees up limited cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, and killing, and improves a community’s rate of lifesaving.  Because nearly 20,000 cats and dogs are killed in Michigan shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

Certified Rescue Organizations have demonstrated their ability to properly care for the animals and conduct business as successful not-for-profit organizations.
