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

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!

A.S.K.'s direct outreach program is a godsend for all animals. So many animals would have continued to suffer and die had it not been for the services that this group provides! They are selfless in their mission to reach these animals no matter the weather conditions or challenging situations and follow through with what ever is needed to give these animals the chance or betterment in the life they deserve!!!!!!!

I follow ASK's exploits on Facebook. I like that they go "all out" for all animals and birds. They spend money on things that other rescues would regard as wasted--and make lives better in the process. I was particularly struck by their tenderness toward the old hen with the frostbitten feet, Henna. They spoiled her until the end, and then saw her gently "home". There needs to be more kindness like this in the world.

A.S.K is always there when an animal is in need. No matter the day or time. It's such a relief to know that an organization such as A.S.K operates in a community such as Battle Creek. However, don't let that fool you as they will travel all over in order to save/rescue an animal in need. If you come upon an animal and are not sure what to do, just A.S.K.

Fabulous things from these people! Working double time in their community helping wildlife as well as chained up forgotten dogs.
And from various posts by Sophia, I have learned a great deal in regards to wildlife issues.
Always helpful:)
