To use direct-outreach methods: to identify and reach animals of ALL species in need to prevent companion animal neglect and suffering by offering free pet supplies and services to assess, humanely capture and mobilize wildlife that are injured/orphaned and transport them to highly-qualified licensed rehabilitators &/or wildlife vets that have a specality in the given species rescued; this includes transfers to accredited facilities out of state to educate pet guardians and the general public about companion animal issues and wildlife concerns to advocate for the enforcement of local animal ordinances to implore a change in human values and behaviors as they relate to the treatment of companion animals; this is the underlying foundation of our direct-outreach programs
Transforming human values and behaviors one family at a time; when A.S.K. first started people did not know what "straw" was. Now, nearly every dog we find outside has straw and the requests for straw pour into our hotline! At minimum 600 24/7 outside dogs are reached annually. At minimum 500 wildlife calls are assessed and responded to.

Reviews for All Species Kinship
No doubt the best animal rescue in Michigan. Always respond promptly phone calls and emails. All kind of animals are given the same treatment without discrimination.
They do more for all animals than you can ever imagine. This city is blessed beyond measure to have them. I applaud them for being willing to go in all areas to help dogs that no one else would. Thank you ASK
ASKs outreach program is one of a kind in the area. Their dedication to animals of every species is commendable. I don't have any doubt that every contribution made to this group goes directly to help the animals. Great organization run by even greater people.
I was around when ASK started, and had the pleasure of working with the organization in the veterinary side of things. They have continued to grow and do great things over the years, and I would help them out in a heartbeat. Great people doing great things for animals. I can't thank them enough for what they do.
No organization or person is more dedicated to helping animals in crisis 24/7 than ASK and Sophia DiPietro.
Very serious about their work, especially with birds. Very well connected to best vets and specialists in this region and beyond. Very aware of best policies and practices, and works harmoniously with people (pet owners) and officials in a way that ensures the best outcomes for animals.
I see all the stories of the animals helped by this organization and I think the work they do is AMAZING!!!! They help all animals and I think the people who are able to volunteer their time are a blessing to them all.
ASK is one of the greatest nonprofits ever. You can be assured that your donation dollars are going to a very good place. ASK is on the front lines caring for animals that the city would let languish and suffer. ASK is out there making a difference every day. Whether it be offering on the spot improvement in chained dogs' lives, or educating others in how to care for and respect animals. Even encouraging people to take their dogs off of chains and bring them inside. ASK is a shining example of what a nonprofit should be, and I wish I could help more.

All Species Kinship does phenomenal work liberating chained dogs, educating the public about the problems with urban farming, and provides incredible individual care to an array of domestic and wild animals. Their compassion does not extend only to "companion" animals, but also to those animals traditionally seen as food. Love the dedication they have!
Outstanding and trustworthy service! When contacted for situations that affect wildlife, Sophia (A.S.K.) always responds back promptly to provide invaluable advice and guidance. Her dedication is inspiring!
