FRIENDS FOR THE DEARBORN ANIMAL SHELTER wrote -
After 20 years of providing shelter to more than 45,000 animals and offering high-quality service to the community, we are embarking on a campaign to build a new Animal Adoption & Education Center. Please join us in our efforts to “Build a Home with Heart.” We’ve always had the heart . . . now we need a new home.
A new facility will benefit both two- and four-legged friends in Southeast Michigan in a myriad of ways. It will strengthen our commitment to better serve our animals, our adopters, our volunteers, our staff, the community, and supporters like YOU.
- Offer a healthy, soothing, low-stress home for animals in our care
- Significantly improve the level of experience for adopters, volunteers, and all community visitors
- Employ sustainable ecological design (“Green Building”) and innovative housing, equipment, and practices
- Provide the opportunity for robust community involvement, education, and enrichment
- Be conveniently located to fully integrate with other public services (Dearborn Administrative Campus on Michigan Avenue; Amtrak site)
- Create a best-in-class work environment for staff, volunteers, and visiting veterinarians
