Review for Michigan Anti Cruelty Society, Detroit, MI, USA
One star is too high of a rating, but zero stars isn't an option. Do not let the name fool you. This organization does not investigate nor prosecute animal cruelty. In fact, they are perpetrators of animal cruelty at the worst level. They deceive the public, donors and volunteers into thinking that they are in existence to help and protect animals, which is the furthest thing from the truth. This organization kills more animals than they save. BY A LOT. In 2017, they killed 400 cats in just the first few months of the year. They do not believe in 21st century animal sheltering. They take in healthy cats just to kill them, rather than neuter them and return them to their homes where they are healthy and thriving. They practice breed discrimination. They are dishonest. When pet owners call for help, they are lied to and told that their animals will be helped. In truth, the animals are killed as soon as they reach the shelter. Join the movement to shut them down. Cut off their funding and do not bring animals there under any circumstance.
Review for POUND PALS DOWNRIVER, Wyandotte, MI, USA
This group has repeatedly advised adopters that they do not have to spay or neuter their rescued pets. Every legitimate animal rescue knows that spay/neuter is a critical component to ending the pet homelessness crisis. To advise otherwise is irresponsible. You can't and shouldn't call yourself a rescue when you have no care of concern for the plight of homeless pets.
Review for Detroit Dog Rescue, St. Clair Shores, MI, USA
If I could give them ZERO stars in this review, I would. They don't deserve one star. This is a fraudulent organization whose mission is to deceive the public in order to bring in the most amount of income possible. They falsely advertise themselves as a No Kill shelter when they do not meet the definition of a No Kill shelter. To be a No Kill shelter, they must be open admission. They are not. They are limited admission, which means they turn animals away. By definition alone, they are NOT a No Kill shelter, and they know that. But the term brings in half-a-million dollars a year, so lie, lie, lie to the public.
