At MBC we’re dedicated to making a positive impact in our communities by helping individuals and families in need. We do this through our commitment to help support charities that make an enormous impact in the lives of many throughout our Michigan communities. One of the ways we raise money is with Friday Casual Days. Every month MBC employees can pay monies for the privilege of wearing blue jeans or other casual attire on Fridays.
Our spotlight charity for February is The Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue
The Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue is a 501 ©(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to rescue destitute dogs in Detroit.
Because of all the time spent on the streets of Detroit rescuing and trapping the destitute, injured, and pregnant dogs they find, it is difficult to serve as a dog adoption organization, too. So, in November of 2015, in an effort to find safe placement for all the dogs that they rescue, they partnered with some of the best shelters and rescues around the state of Michigan and beyond who were willing to accept our rescued dogs and arrange for adoptions.
They care about the long-term well-being of dogs. To determine who the best shelters were, they pulled every shelter report from the entire state and went through each one, picking only the shelters with the best records. They found that those shelters were happy to help and were supportive of their efforts. They are continuing this effort to find more well-run shelters and rescues throughout Michigan to partner with to ensure that all dogs have a safe place to land.
They are extremely happy about the immediate success of this project. Since the project began, “Straight Outta Detroit” has transferred many dogs to the Detroit Pit Crew dog shelter and rescue partners throughout the state of Michigan. If you are located in or around the state of Michigan, or can provide safe transport to your location, please contact them below to inquire about a partnership. Please be aware many of the dogs they rescue as bully breeds and therefore cannot travel to states or provinces with breed specific legislation.
