Mitten Mutts Dog Rescue: helping the most at-risk dogs in Michigan.
Mitten Mutts Dog Rescue is dedicated to helping dogs that are most at risk of not being adopted in high kill and over-crowded shelters. When a dog is able to get out of the shelter into a home, we are better able to see the dog’s wonderful personalities, work on their specific needs, and find the perfect forever home. In an effort to cut down on the homeless pet population, we educate and assist the public on spaying and neutering. We are run 100% by volunteers.
Our mission is to provide love, care, training, and homes to dogs at risk in high kill and over-crowded shelters.

What People (and pups) Say
"Everyone Truly Cares About Dogs"
"I Love Hoomans!"
“I love fostering with MMDR! I like that I can choose the dog I foster, and it isn't assigned to me. Everyone truly cares about dogs that many times get overlooked. The MMDR volunteers are amazing and I always feel supported.”
Stacey, MMDR Foster Since January 2020
"My life before Mitten Mutts was pretty scary. I lived in a not-so-nice house with a lot of other dogs, until one day a doggy police officer took us away. My foster mom always told me how much she loved me, even when I was naughty (I thought climbing fences and eating flowers was normal!). I was afraid of most humans, but not my mom. She was my best friend and she told me I had to be brave when I went to my furever home. I was scared at first, but now I have a big furry sister and I love my new mom and dad SO MUCH! I also really like skunks...and occasionally fence climbing outings. I guess humans aren’t so bad after all."
"We Love Her So Much"
“We adopted Skittles in July 2019. She fits right into our family perfectly, her favorite being is her pup-brother, Squeak. She has come a long way since adopting her, we love her so much!”
Ashley, Adopted Mom,
