BENEFITING: DETROIT DOG RESCUE

EVENT DATE: Jan 09, 2014

THE STORY:

In Detroit, thousands of wild dogs are roaming the streets, many abandoned because their owners could no longer afford to keep them.

"Every day, an owner is calling to surrender an animal," rapper Dan "Hush" Carlisle, who started Detroit Dog Rescue in 2011 with Monica Martino, told The Huffington Post. "Struggling financially makes it hard for them to keep their animals. It's very sad to see. That's where you really see the impact of what's going on in the city."

There are more than 50,000 stray dogs running loose in the streets of Detroit, and only 23 animal care workers to rescue them. Over 90% of dogs picked up in Detroit are euthanized. There are simply not enough resources, funding, rescue workers, foster homes or people who are willing to adopt.

These numbers break my heart. You don't have to be a pet owner and animal lover like me to understand how painful it is to lose a loved one simply because you couldn't afford to keep him/her.

For my 30th birthday, I hope you will help support my goal of raising $500 for Detroit Dog Rescue, the city's first no-kill shelter. Detroit Dog Rescue is focused on raising awareness for the plight of the forgotten, homeless and stray dogs of Detroit.

It started in February 2011, after the City of Detroit refused to allow access to a network television series that would have documented the lives of dogs trying to survive in an urban environment.

For more information about the organization, check out: http://detroitdogrescue.com/

You can also donate supplies, which they desperately need:

All funds raised on CrowdRise are sent directly to the Detroit Dog Rescue by the  payment processor Network for Good.  

Thanks so much for your help.

With gratitude,
Jenn
