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

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.

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.

All Species Kinship has been a great part of our community. They not only focus on helping animals but also they focus on the education of the human factor. They have come to our classrooms and spoken to our youth and they continue to educate out on the street every day without being rude. The volunteers understand the area they provide aid and they are always willing to help any type of animal out. I have been volunteering with animal rescue for over 10 years and no other rescue in the area values the education piece as much as they do.

As a member of an animal rescue/welfare organization in their region, we have collaborated on numerous occasions with successful results. ASK is highly responsive to their community's needs and plays a MUCH NEEDED role in the community. Their methods and policies are responsible and always provide the absolute best for both domestic animals and wildlife. They are comprised of a highly dedicated group of animal advocates. As a member of the animal welfare community, I am proud to recommend them!

I am a state and federally-licensed wildlife rehabilitator that has known Mike & Sophia of All Species Kinship for years.Their dedication to all species of animals,wild or domestic,has earned the respect of everyone that knows them,including me. If they don`t know the answer to a question about wildlife,they ask me or other rehabbers so that they are certain as to whom to take a particular species to.They then will drive hours away to make certain an orphaned or injured creature gets proper care at the right facility.All of this at their own expense or whatever donations come their way. They truly are heros to any creature that needs help.Their organization is a God-send,for sure!

I`m a federally-licensed wildlife rehabilitator who has called AllSpecies Kinship a number of times over the years for help in rescuing or transporting various species of wildlife either to me or other wildlife rehabilitators. No matter what the species is,I can count on them for help when needed.Their professionalism and compassion towards animals and birds is excellent. They go out of their way,driving hundreds of miles to rescue or transport.They are indeed worthy of donations to help cover their costs.

Liscensed rehabilitators, like you, that spend all hours of the day and a considerable amount of money out of their own pockets to give an animal a second chance at life, are great colleagues to work among!
