Where does your money go?

Friends of Detroit Animal Care and Control strives to operate with maximum transparency. While you are always able to restrict what your donation is used for, general donations will go toward areas of greatest need in our organization, which may include funding the following programs.

pay n' spay

Our biggest focus right now is funding the sterilization of dogs in the shelter. Dogs that are sterilized are able to be adopted or fostered by the public, are more attractive to our transfer partners since that is one less expense they have to worry about, and are safer. Our Pay N' Spay program has paid out over $6,000 in 2018 alone for spay and neuter of DACC dogs. It's a constant need, with less than 5% of the dogs coming into the shelter altered. Like Bob Barker said, "Help control the pet population. Have your pets spayed or neutered."

couch surfers

Our foster program is focused on giving dogs two weeks to decompress in a home before they attend an adoption event. We supply food, treats, a crate, collar, leash, tag, front-clip harness, toys, and anything else a Couch Surfer may need. We have also pulled heartworm positive dogs into our Couch Surfer program so that they can get treated and sterilized before either being adopted out or transferred to one of our partner organizations.
