PARL Parters with Detroit Shelter to find homes for dogs in Rhode Island

When Detroit Animal Care and Control put out a public plea for new transport partners, our Dog Coordinator, Jill, knew that PARL could help. Their shelter was extremely overcrowded and needed some relief. We set up a transport for three dogs, Pixie , Debo & Johnny Knoxville. They arrived in Rhode Island one January morning, driven all the way from Detroit by a board member of Friends of Detroit Animal Care & Control. These 3 dogs were social, healthy & more than ready to find their forever homes. We saw no reason that they would have sat for 3 months in a Detroit shelter, other than the sheer volume of dogs. Within a little under 3 weeks, all three dogs went to loving homes here in Lil Rhody. With more dogs entering DACC daily, PARL hopes to continue lending a hand in finding these resilient Detroit Specials their forever homes.
