Join Detroit Dog Rescue for our Fourth Annual Walk To Rescue 5K!!! All funds raised for the walk will be used to support Detroit's First and ONLY No-Kill Animal Shelter. All members of the family are encouraged to attend, especially the four-legged ones! If you bring a four-legged family member, make sure they are dog/people friendly and stay collared/leashed at al times. In ensuring that the walk remains a fun and safe environment, we may ask that a non-friendly dog leaves if we feel it is a liability.

Come join the staff, volunteers and - most importantly - the supporters of Detroit Dog Rescue for this fun-filled event! For the first time ever, we will be sponsoring official Detroit Dog Rescue walk teams. Whether you are walking alone or with a group, participants will be able to raise money on behalf of one of our dogs to see which dog comes out on top!

To raise money, create a team or donate to the Detroit Dog Rescue team on our fundraising website.

So sign up, join a team and help change the lives of hundreds of Detroit dogs! With helpful tips and videos being posted to the Detroit Dog Rescue Facebook page leading up to the event, it will be easier than ever to raise money for your teams!

Make sure you download the “Walk For A Dog” mobile application. Once you download the application, you will be able to raise money for Detroit Dog Rescue every time you take your four-legged best friend for a walk!

Make sure you select Detroit Dog Rescue as the supported organization; the application is fully customizable, easy to use and lets you raise money just by walking! Just log onto the app every time you go for a walk and watch the fundraising happen!

After you've finished walking, feel free to join us in the activity center for lunch! Also, if you've had your eye on some Detroit Dog Rescue merchandise but haven't had the chance to get it, we will be on-site with all the shirts, hats, and hoodies you could ever want! 

We can't wait for you to walk with us!!!
