We are animal lovers raising money and awareness by selling groovy merchandise and hosting local fundraising events. Funds raised go directly towards the neglected and homeless animals in our care.
In 2020, we were three passionate, animal loving dog moms who met through various volunteer efforts at local rescues in the Detroit area. We continued talking outside of volunteering and quickly came to realize that we all had similar goals, to help as many animals in need that we possibly could. We wanted to do more to help these animals.
We raised funds through selling merchandise, fundraising, and donations to establish our 501c3 non profit status while helping families with their pet's emergency medical needs. Before we knew it, we were being called upon to pull animals from shelters and assist families with surrenders. We knew then, that the need for our organization in the community was more than we ever imagined. Our team has now grown to six and we are a powerhouse of women fighting for the voiceless. All funds we raise go directly to the animals in our care.
Please follow us on our journey to helping animals and creating a rescue that provides animals the love and care they need until they find their furever home. Make sure you follow us on social media to see updates on the animals we save and how your support made a difference.
