*2/1/13 UPDATE: LuLu started having seizures shortly after being rescued and is now doing great on her Veterinarian prescribed medications. She will need to remain on medication for the remainder of her life, but her monthly medication costs are low/very affordable.

Original Posting: LuLu was on the streets of Detroit. A lady called us and said that their was a little dog in front of her house, and that her neighbors pit bulls had gotten out of their yard and were chasing her. When our volunteer arrived, LuLu was running away from the bigger dogs, and ended up on Hayes (a fast moving street) dodging traffic. She was so scared at that point, but our volunteer was able to corner her against a fence and rescue her. On the way back to the car, another neighbor came out saying she had been her next door neighbors dog, they had moved out a few days prior. They left poor LuLu behind, outside, in Detroit, to fend for herself. She's quite friendly with people, does NOT like cats, and only likes other dogs who are older and relaxed.She's house trained thanks to her foster mom's diligence. She has been over bred as well as over fed!! Please contact us if youre interested in LuLu - 586 690 2808

About Mutts of Motown

About Our Rescue Group...

Mutts of Motown is a very small Detroit based rescue. Our goal is to save dogs and some cats who are in danger, abused, abandoned or neglected. Because we are so small and due to lack of funding and foster homes, we work with many 501 c-3 non profit groups who often take in many of our Detroit rescues. Sometimes we provide care, spays, neuters, straw, dog houses and even dog food to those who need it and cannot afford it, or refuse to provide it for their pets. Because of the great numbers of animals being killed in our shelters nationwide we urge you to fix your pets and urge your government officials to change laws about backyard and basement breeding as well as passing spay and neuter laws nationwide. We believe with these laws in place shelters wouldn't be needed in a few years. California has some of these laws in place now. We should follow this example and stop allowing our tax dollars to go towards the killing of unwanted animals.

All monetary donations must go to our Vet - Rakestraw Animal Hospital (20241 Van Dyke St, Detroit MI 48234 (313) 366-8853)) to the Mutts of Motown Rescue account.

Our Adoption Process...

Please click on the pet you're interested in and read his/her profile and requirements prior to calling us for a phone consult. If the pet's profile states no children, a fenced yard, etc. these are requirements, not suggestions. All requirements will be verified during application screening and at the time of the required home visit. Please be patient when waiting for a call back as we're all volunteers. The number to call can be found in each pet's profile. Regrettably, we cannot do rescue business via text, facebook or email, so a volunteer who knows the dog in question will return your call at their earliest convenience. All of our dogs are fully and thoroughly evaluated in foster homes prior to being available for adoption. WOOF!
