No more homeless pets is our goal and our passion.

Our focus is on spay/neuter, community cat management, pet adoption and pet wellness care in the pursuit of No More Homeless Pets!

To adopt out every dog and cat, everyone would have to own 21 cats and 7 dogs. Last year, over 20,000 homeless pets were killed in Michigan shelters. Nationally, 5 out of 10 of the healthy adoptable cats and dogs entering shelters are killed each year.
If a pipe bursts and the house is flooding, turn the water off. If your house was flooding because the water was on, would you turn off the water first or start bailing out water? Spay/neuter is like turning off the water.
Sterilization is the quickest and most cost effective method available to reduce the number of homeless pets. On national averages, adopting out a pet costs $500, while keeping a pet in a sanctuary is $5,000. Yet, a simple spay/neuter procedure, costing around $50, prevents multitudes of homeless pets.
Our society cannot effectively adopt or shelter our way out of the homeless pet problem. Continued low-cost care and high volume sterilization is critical in alleviating the present animal welfare burden.
Are we seeing proof? Yes! Take for example the city of Warren which is the third most populated city in Michigan; the number of cats and dogs brought to the county shelter was nearly the same every year. But then a high-quality, high-volume, low-cost spay/neuter clinic named All About Animals Rescue opened in the city, providing low-cost spay/neuter 5 days a week. Can you guess what change has occurred in Warren over just a 6 year period? A 67% reduction in the number of cats and dogs entering shelters!
One example of a pet we’ve helped:
Moses who came to us underweight, wondering outdoors, with a sign tied with twine around his neck that said “My name is Moses. I am a good boy. Please take care of me.” We were able to take Moses into foster care but it turned out he also needed surgery on both his knees. Thankfully we were able to help him get his much needed surgery so he can live a pain free life and has been adopted into a wonderful home. Here is an update from his new family:
“He is doing wonderfully. He is so loved by this family and spoiled to much some days. He is all one color now and running and having a blast with other dogs in the family. He is so great with kids that the neighbor kids love to play with him, they say he is so soft and can’t stop touching him and he loves it. He had his first bath last month and enjoyed it so much that now he tries to jump into the bath with me. My brother loves to take him to the beach to run on the sand and also enjoys all the attention he gets from the girls. He is still a Detroit red wings fan but we are trying to convert him to a Canadians or Maple leaf fan and he will not have anything to do with it. He truly loves hockey it is very funny to watch. He also loves the snow so I think he starting to become a true Canadian.
We as a family can not thank you enough for the love and support you gave him during the rough times in his life and we want you to know that you are heroes to us.”
