Raising funds, resources, and awareness for life-saving
animal organizations in our community


Our 2024 Beneficiaries

We would like to welcome Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control to the family

The mission of Blue Star Service Dogs is to provide our military veterans diagnosed with PTSD and TBI another method of healing through service dogs and training. Through our programs, we seek to help heal visible and invisible wounds, provide families with new beginnings, and raise awareness about the potential of shelter and rescue dogs everywhere.

Cat Tail Acres

Cat Tail Acres is a sanctuary for feral and unwanted cats. We are not a traditional shelter and don’t accept socialized adult cats or kittens who are more adoptable. We believe all of God’s living creatures deserve a right to a good life.

Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control

Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control is committed to saving animals’ lives, ensuring equal access to companion animals for those of all socio-economic levels, and raising the level of care for animals living in the city of Detroit.

I do not think I could get this involved or work as hard for any other cause. I think about those less fortunate animals out there every day and know that we can do more with our community of friends than we could possibly do ourselves to help them.

2024 MIAWF Food Drive

Country Lanes & Aleta Sill’s Bowling World is an Official Drop Off Site to Accept Donations. The amazing organizations we benefit always need food to feed the animals in their care!!!

The need does not end….we are ALWAYS happy to accept food donations for our furry friends who need us!

Remain a voice for those who cannot help themselves.
