We are creating this page as a resource for owners.  We get many requests from people to turn in dogs, and the reasons/issues are truly "fixable".  Some owners may need financial assistance for vetting, spaying/neutering, others may need places to find food or guidance about certain issues they are encountering.  This page will be set up by geographic location throughout Michigan, so owners can find resources in their area.
