Our Impact

We run the volunteer program at DACC. We host offsite adoption events and participate in BISSELL’s Empty the Shelters, Meet Your Best Friend at the Zoo, and help facilitate adoptions at DACC. We help keep pets out of the shelter by hosting free Pop-PUP clinics around Detroit with free microchips, free vaccines, and free exchanges of chains and prong collars for harnesses.



live release rate at dacc

With our combined efforts, Detroit Animal Care and Control has raised its live release rate dramatically in the past few years, and is still improving.



dogs and cats microchipped for free at pop-pup clinics

We have two Pop-PUP clinics under our belt so far, and both were a total success. Our second clinic also included free rabies vaccines and free city licenses.



animals adopted with the help of friends of dacc

Our board and volunteers have directly facilitated more than 200 adoptions since our inception in 2017, many at offsite events as near as City Bark downtown and as far as BISSELL HQ in Grand Rapids.
