The Animal Care Network outreach program visits the streets of Pontiac and Inkster every single day rescuing dogs and cats, doing wellness checks and offering assistance to pet owners with indoor and outdoor pets. Volunteers make 100 to 200 stops every week, install straw in dog houses for dogs living outdoors and offer public education. The organization also provides financial aid for spaying and neutering.
"When the economy is struggling, non-profit organizations are directly affected and these are some of the programs that are vital to the community in such tough times," said Pam Porteous, Animal Care Network manager.
