HomeFur-ever is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed in 1983 for the purpose of rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals and providing them with new adoptive homes. HomeFur-ever is a volunteer-based, 'no-kill' animal rescue group.
The non-profit organization is dependent upon volunteers and donations to continue its animal life-saving efforts. The group relies on a network of foster families throughout the Detroit Metro area who care for animals under the group's protection, and provide all necessary medical care (at the organization's expense), animal personality assessment, human and animal socialization, and behavioral training as may be required to insure the animals are adoption-ready so they may become a member of a new, loving family at the earliest opportunity.
HomeFur-ever takes in animals of various breeds, sizes, ages, and medical conditions, and they concentrate on saving as many animal lives as possible. All animals are provided with proper medical treatment including: shots, de-worming, neutering (to prevent additions to the existing over-abundant puppy and kitten population), heartworm testing, and preventive medication. The group is frequently required to expend substantial investments in major medical procedures for animals who have been rescued from abusive and abandonment situations in order to adhere to its 'no-kill' policy. These costs are all covered thru the receipt of donations and pet adoption fees. HomeFur-ever cares for an average of 90 animals at any given time.
