What's New For 2018
A Message From Our Founder
2018 is going to be a great year - special thanks to those of you that chose us as your charity of choice - your financial support is always appreciated!
As we move forward, my goal is to become more financial stable and expand our community outreach and the services that we provide. It gives me so much happiness knowing that the residents in Redford Township, Inkster, River Rouge and Westland know they can count on us to keep their dogs/cats healthy with their yearly vaccines! All of these communities will have our "off-site" vaccination clinics available to them - at a reduced cost - without having to leave their own City!
We are working on two new fundaisers for 2018 - Cruisin' 4 Critters - our first motorcycle event AND Tail Waggers' Tuesday with Livonia's Blue Plate Diner. Our signature event - the 29th Annual Tail Wagger's Bowl will wrap up the year for us.
All of this is exciting stuff - follow us on Facebook and the webpage for details! Please spread the word - we love to meet new friends!
Always remember, anyone of any income level can use our services - there is no need to "qualify". Refer a friend anytime!

March 21, 2017 - In 2005, Laura Zain made the incredible journey back from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and Rita. With animal #79/Benny in her van, little did she know that #79 would not only steal her heart but would share her life until he was to rest at the approximate age of 16 years.
April 12, 2017 - Used as bait for a fighting ring, "Thumper" was brought into our care after wandering the streets of Detroit.

Now named Bud, he is in his forever home leaving a paw print on all our hearts!
