New Shelter Donations

After 20 years of providing shelter to more than 42,600 animals and offering high-quality service to the community, we are embarking on a campaign to build a new Animal Adoption & Education Center.  Please join us in our efforts to “Build a Home with Heart.” We’ve always had the heart . . . now we need a new home.

How You Can Help

If you are interested in donating to the new animal adoption and education initiative, or for more information about assisting with the public phase of our campaign, contact our Development Director Kelle Sisung at 313.303.1770 or ksisung@dearbornanimals.org.

We want to thank everyone who has already committed to the dream of a new shelter.

Why A New Shelter?

For more information download our Capital Campaign Statement

A new facility will benefit both two- and four-legged friends in Southeast Michigan in a myriad of ways.  It will strengthen our commitment to better serve our animals, our adopters, our volunteers, our staff, the community, and supporters like YOU.

Our vision:

  • Offer a healthy, soothing, low-stress home for animals in our care
  • Significantly improve the level of experience for adopters, volunteers, and all community visitors
  • Employ sustainable ecological design (“Green Building”) and innovative housing, equipment, and practices
  • Provide the opportunity for robust community involvement, education, and enrichment
  • Be conveniently located to fully integrate with other public services
  • Create a best-in-class work environment for staff, volunteers, and visiting veterinarians
