Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Animal Protection & Welfare, Animals

Mission: 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

Results: 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.

Geographic areas served: Southern Michigan

Programs: Creature Comfort Program Fix-it Blitz Service Wildlife Assessment and Mobilization Service Duck and Goose Refuge; Animal Sanctuary

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.

Awesome group! There are very dedicated individuals involved who go to great lengths when they respond to urban and rural situations. They have proven to be dynamic when dealing with not only domestic cases, but also with cases involving wildlife.

This group is amazing as they are out in all kinds of weather in the worst parts of town. This does not faze them a bit in their work as it is where they are needed. Providing food,water,and toys to chained dogs and educating people to see the reasons why their dogs should live inside. Taking on injured wildlife knowing what is needed to be done and do it. They are amazing people and many animals have survived and were given a better life due to their work.

I have called A.S.K. in the past when I found an injured gosling. They were amazingly helpful and super prompt in getting back to me, especially since it was on a Saturday. Someone came out to pick up the goose as soon as they could and kept me updated about his health. I love this organization and all that they do for so many different animals!

A.S.K is the definition of a top-notch organization. They are all about the animals and will do anything they can to help. They have helped me personally more times than I can count on two hands! The world is a better place because of A.S.K!

I came across All Species Kinship about a month ago.  I had found 2 domestic ducks at a local park, one of which had a broken bill that I was afraid wouldn't be able to survive the winter without assistance.  I called numerous people/organizations in my area for help without any luck.  I called All Species Kinship and left a message- not really expecting to be called back after the luck I had up to that point.  I was wrong!  They not only called me back that same day, they said they would take both ducks, no questions asked!  They even met me half-way (I live about 2 hours away from the sanctuary) to pick up the ducks and take them to the sanctuary.  They took both ducks to an avian vet the very next day and have provided updates as well as pictures of the two ducks for me.  This is just one of MANY great stories of A.S.K.  All Species Kinship has changed and continues to change the lives of SO many animals thanks to your donations and the wonderful A.S.K volunteers. 100% of your donations go directly to the animals.  The All Species Kinship volunteers do all of the work they do out of the goodness of their hearts because of their love for animals.  We need more organizations like All Species Kinship.  They truly are angels and do amazing work!
