C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc.

Join C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc.’s Team and start fundraising today!

C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc.’s mission is to get each outdoor chained dog off the chain, one dog at a time.

We enhance the lives of 24/7 chained/outside dogs by providing life enhancing supplies & services including: insulated dog houses, straw, safe fenced yards/kennels, spay/neuter assistance, vaccines, heartworm prevention, treats, toys, love and most importantly… owner education and resources. Correcting the problem where it originates decreases the number of homeless and neglected animals.

Every dog is worth saving and this is our way of saving them!Since 2011, C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc. volunteers have assisted:
2,897 dogs/puppies (some cats/kittens too)
880 igloos/barns given to outside dogs
648 spay/neuter
347 surrendered/rescued
84 adoptions
68 freedom kennels built

Life-saving #PlungeForPaws donations will allow C.H.A.I.N.E.D. Inc. to purchase over 800 bales of straw for outdoor dog house insulation. Donations will also provide outdoor chained dogs with warm shelter and food for the winter. We plan to purchase insulated outdoor igloo dog houses, warm heating pads, heated water bowls so water doesn’t freeze over, dry kibble food, comfortable collars and lightweight leashes. Most importantly, we will provide pet owners with educational materials on how to keep their dogs safe and healthy during Michigan’s brutal and deadly cold winter weather. We encourage all pet owners to bring their dogs indoors during the coldest nights so we provide indoor crates.

NBS Rescue

Please join NBS Animal Rescue’s Team and start fundraising today!

NBS Animal Rescue’s mission is to Foster, Love, and Adopt homeless dogs, one-by-one, until there are none.

Specifically, we focus on pulling small breed dogs from Michigan shelters. We take the seniors and medical needs dogs that are least likely to be adopted, and are at a high risk of euthanasia. All necessary medical care is provided for them until we find them a loving home.

Since 2011, even as a smaller foster-based rescue we have proudly adopted out over 600 dogs. We are a 5-star rescue certified by the Michigan Pet Fund Alliance, by always going above and beyond the best standardized rescue practices. Since 2011, we have been successful in securing grants that help fund our senior medical needs program, emergency medical outreach program, and post-adoption training programs. We proudly operate a pet food pantry that often supplies other rescues and outreach groups with dog food when the need arises. To date, we have supplied over 40,000 lbs. of dog food to animals in need.

Life-saving #PlungeForPaws donations will replenish one of our 3 main programs: Senior Medical Fund, Emergency Outreach Fund, or Post-Adoption Training fund. All of these programs are geared to help the neediest dogs receive the care they desperately deserve and keep them in loving homes.

A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue

Join A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue’s Team and start fundraising today!

A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue’s mission is to help all the homeless, neglected, abused animals and find them forever homes and educate the public on how important spaying and neutering is.

A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue is a no-kill, foster-based cat and dog rescue. We are a non-profit charity located in the Metro-Detroit area. All of the animals that come into in our care have been rescued from one place or another. We pull from high-kill animal shelters, we take in the sick, unwanted, aggressive, abandoned, abused and neglected animals. We place them in a foster home with someone who will understand them, rehabilitate them and show them what it is like to be loved again. We feel that all animals deserve better and we strive to give them a life full of love and happiness.

Each animal that comes into our organization is a part of someone’s family until they find their forever homes. Fostering is probably one of the most rewarding experiences ever! To see an animal come to you that is helpless, lonely, lost, abused and neglected go from underdog to wonderdog is the greatest feeling in the whole world. While in a loving foster home, it is easier to determine a pet’s as they receive the one-on-one attention that they deserve.

A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue also runs a community outreach project, helping 24/7 chained dogs, stray/feral cats and more. We provide medical care (including TNR), food, treats, toys, bones, proper tie outs, collars, shelter, straw and more!

Our volunteers are essential to aid in fundraising, follow-ups, fostering, event planning, administrative work or just say a prayer for the babies we are trying to save. If you want to volunteer we can always use your help. It does not matter if you can devote as little as 4 hours a week or 40 hours a week. Please visit our webpage here to learn the ways you can volunteer, or make a life-saving donation and become an integral part of an animal’s second chance at life!
