A Detroit, MI 48219 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.

All of Michigan and as room permits, we do take dogs from out of state.
Michigan Coonhound Rescue was officially incorporated in 1998. We started rescuing dogs about 20 years ago, and decided to focus exclusively on the Coonhound varieties in 1990. We are Federal Nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization.
Michigan Coonhound Rescue is dedicated to the rescue and placement of Coonhounds in permanent family homes. We work with the Treeing Walker, Redbone, Bluetick and English varieties. We make a lifetime commitment to the dogs we rescue.
• Physical Rescue. This includes providing foster care, temperament evaluation, medical treatment, spay or neuter, and basic training to abandoned, stray and abused coonhounds, in order to find permanent family homes for them.
• Foster Homes are provided by Rescue volunteers. They provide loving homes until a permanent home can be found. We are always in need of good Foster Homes around the country. Foster families housebreak, crate train, socialize and start basic obedience training for the fostered coonhounds.
• Medical Treatment. When a coonhound is accepted into Rescue, a veterinarian immediately evaluates it. All dogs are vaccinated, heartworm checked, spayed or neutered and given any other medical treatment as necessary.
• Placement Services. We maintain a National Listing of coonhounds available to homes and a list of persons seeking coonhounds. These lists are updated and checked daily for possible matches.
• Education. Members of Michigan Coonhound Rescue are always available to provide help and assistance to coonhound owners. While we do not always have room in a foster home, we can provide advice on finding a home for a coonhound. We are happy to advise on nutrition, health care, behavior problems and other needs.
• To Promote Coonhounds as Pets and Companions. We also provide public education regarding coonhounds as pets. While coonhounds are not for everyone, these true American breeds, make wonderful pets and companions.
How we do it
We are a small all volunteer organization and receive no public funding. We work strictly from the generous donations from caring people like you.
Our dogs are all cared for in private homes by volunteers. We are always in need of foster homes.
We are hoping to find a permanent home for our rescue and really need a grant writer. If you or someone you know has the time and skill to help us out, we'd be thrilled!
We do occasionally show our pets, but prefer private family meetings. You can email us for information on our next adoption event.
