Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) is a 501C3 non profit “no-kill” rescue in Macomb County, Michigan.

We are foster based and composed of over 100 volunteers. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home animals in need.  Our pets come from local shelters, owner surrenders and strays. We focus on Saving the Stray’s of Detroit through our Detroit Outreach Program and hold regular outreach missions to take in injured, starved, neglected and abused animals. Every animal is provided a loving home, full veterinary care including; spay/neuter, age appropriate vaccines, fecal, heartworm test, feline leukemia/FIV test, de-worming, and microchip placement in addition to any other medical needs. We accept all breeds and species including farm animals and wildlife. 

Community education is paramount with the focus on volunteers teaching proper animal care and awareness to dog fighting in Detroit.  Low income residents are provided with housing, food, straw and transport to spay/neuter appointments.

If you are interested in adopting, fostering, volunteering, or donating to help us save as many animals as possible PLEASE contact us or submit an application. Thank You!
