No more homeless pets is our goal and our passion.
All About Animals Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, founded in 2005, dedicated to ending pet overpopulation. We are the largest high quality, high volume, low-cost to no-cost spay and neuter, non-profit animal wellness center in Michigan with clinics in Warren, Detroit and Auburn Hills. Our focus is on spay/neuter, pet adoption and pet wellness care in the pursuit of No More Homeless Pets!
- To date, we have safely spayed/neutered over 70,000 cats and dogs; 17,317 pets in 2012 alone
- We provide free health screenings, low cost vaccines and preventative care; helping over 33,000 pets each year
- Our mobile spay/neuter unit and transport vans allow us to bring low-cost to no-cost spay/neuter and wellness care to under-served communities within Michigan
- To help financially distressed owners keep their pets in the home, we operate a year round pet food pantry
- We utilize a network of foster homes to give unwanted pets a safe place until their forever home is found
- We have trained over 1,700 people through our comprehensive Trap Neuter Return program and stopped thousands of outdoor free roaming feral cats from reproducing and being euthanized in shelters
- We run the Spay Michigan hotline helping families all over Michigan find the low cost providers nearest them.
We are committed to helping animals.
We are a no kill rescue. Maddie’s Fund website has excellent information on the No-Kill movement, what it really means and how to accomplish it.
We are available for presentations/interviews about spay/neuter, adoption and animal care.
We are one of the few rescues in the State of Michigan that assists families with spay/neuter of their pets.

To adopt out every dog and cat, everyone would have to own 21 cats and 7 dogs. That simply isn’t feasible so aggressive spay/neuter programs are the answer. Nearly 100, 000 cats and dogs are killed every year in Michigan shelters. Across the nation, 6 out of 10 dogs and 7 out 10 cats don’t make it out alive. We will never shelter our way out of pet homelessness!
On average a sterilization costs $50, while adopting out a pet is around $500. To shelter a pet, that cost sky rockets to $5000. It is clear that building more shelters is not going to solve this problem. Spay/neuter is the most cost effective and quickest way to reach a day when there are no more homeless pets.
Just 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.”

Our Former CEO
We are very sad to announce that our CEO succumbed to renal failure. Many of you will remember her as she quietly surveyed all that went on at All About Animals Rescue. She was not only a cherished staff member, but a client favorite as well. CEO came to All About Animals Rescue when she was abandoned outside of the old Mound location. Through the years she brought joy and cattitude to the rescue. There will never be another that can match her spirit. CEO – we miss you.
CEO was found in pretty bad shape, she was dehydrated, very underweight and lethargic. We took her in and treated her, giving her lots of treats and love. Originally CEO was supposed to be adopted out but she quickly took over the office and established herself as contributor and taking over the operations. After establishing herself in the main office she then stole everyone’s heart and started running the place with a soft paw! She demands nothing but the best from her employees and volunteers! CEO will only eat prime cuts of chicken and other prime goodies deemed worthy of her attention. She adores cat nip and likes a constant supply of it.
CEO is not shy about letting people know what she wants – which is lots of love and hard work!
