We are animal lovers raising money by selling groovy merchandise and hosting local fundraising events. Funds raised go directly back into our community to help with immediate medical needs and care for local animals.
We are 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 as we possibly could. There are so many animals in the Detroit area who need homes, medical attention, and love.
We decided that we wanted to do more to help these animals. We raise funds by selling merchandise, fundraising, donations, and supporting local community events. All funds raised are used to fund the medical needs of local dogs, care for the animals in our rescue, and find shelter animals their furever home.
Follow us on our journey to create a rescue that provides animals the love and care they need while finding their home. We will post updates on our social media of the dogs we can help and how your support made a difference.
