Dear Friends of Make a Difference Rescue,

At this time of year, reflections of the year are common.

MADR is a Michigan shelter. As a shelter, we take in all types of injured and unwanted dogs, including dogs on death row from other shelters. Our foster based rescue works at full capacity to have as many dogs in our care in the foster homes versus the shelter.

This year has been especially challenging with all of the COVID adopters, now turn-ins. In addition to being available 24/7 to pick up and rescue stray and unwanted dogs from the City of Detroit, we are daily getting requests from kill shelters to rescue dogs on last call lists that are set for euthanasia that very same day.

Our shelter is staffed from morning until 10 o’clock at night so that our shelter dogs have their play groups, walks, peanut butter bones, and all of the necessities to provide the dogs in our care the absolute best care that can be achieved. We are a no-kill shelter. There is no time limit.

But, as a Michigan non-profit and federal tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization, you know we can’t do it without you. Your donations are critical to the ongoing mission of the operation: to save dogs. That is what we do, we save dogs.

We also save medical dogs that no other groups will take as the expense is beyond the donations in most cases. This makes the annual giving even more critical. We want to continue to grow and continue to rescue. Please give. Your donation is a holiday gift for the dogs.

Donations can be made here. If you prefer to send a check, it can be sent to P.O. BOX 890 Birmingham, MI 48012. 

On behalf of all our dogs, we appreciate your generosity and wish you a Happy, Healthy, and Peaceful Holiday Season! 

With gratitude,

Make a Difference Rescue
