How Detroit’s Financial Hardship Has Affected the City’s Dogs

Given the news reports over the past few days about the city of Detroit’s recent bankruptcy filing, I’ve been reminded of the four days last year I spent filming there with Detroit Dog Rescue.  I knew the city had been suffering for many years but I don’t think I appreciated quite how bad it was in some areas until I saw it for myself.  Entire communities were gone, streets upon streets of homes had been abandoned and there were stray dogs everywhere.  Mother Nature was gradually reclaiming what had been taken from her and in some areas I felt like I was in the countryside.

This short film about Detroit and Detroit Dog Rescue gives a taste of the devastation while highlighting some of the people that work so hard to help some of those affected.

    My dog Molly used to go out the doggie door, but now she will not go or pees on the porch or somewhere in the house.
    We are minding two Golden Retrievers for a friend daily, but Molly knows them, I just don't know what is the matter.
    Help, help!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks
