July 2020 has been an incredibly heartbreaking and expensive month for our organization. We rescued an alarming number of dogs that were either sick or extremely injured, several of which, despite our best efforts, did not survive. We are still mourning the loss of these innocent dogs, some of which were subjected to abuse, inhumane treatment and/or neglect beyond our comprehension. This past week I met with a detective and an investigator from the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office regarding several of these animal abuse/neglect cases. We will continue to fight hard to make sure that those who neglect or abuse animals are brought to justice and to speak for the voiceless animals that are victimized. Their lives are precious and they will not be forgotten.
We want to extend a heart felt thank you to everyone who has donated towards the care of our rescued dogs. During the first 3 weeks of July, our veterinary bills exceeded $20,000.00. Your tax deductible donations truly do allow us to make miracles happen for the destitute dogs that need us the most.
With sincere gratitude,
Executive Director, Detroit Pit Crew
