Improving the welfare of companion animals in Wayne County.

We are a dedicated group of passionate individuals, united by our commitment to improving the well-being of companion animals within our community. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, our mission revolves around the core values of providing and promoting access to vital resources, education, and programs that elevate the lives of our furry friends.

Our multifaceted approach to animal welfare includes raising awareness, promoting responsible pet ownership, and advocating for spaying and neutering programs. We offer grants and community outreach to support local animal welfare groups, collaborate with shelters and rescues, and advocate for stronger animal protection laws, all in pursuit of a safer and happier world for animals.
