I won't sign this petition because it's not based on fact, but rather based on the media hype that Hush and DDR have created. Yes there is a problem in Detroit, but there are several rescues that are doing awesome work - Detroit Bully Corp, C.H.A.I.N.E.D, and All about Animals, along with several other rescues who take in MI dogs, including dogs from Detroit. DDR is all about raising alarm and taking in donations, but they are not respected in the rescue community. I won't sign anything that glorifies DDR.

You could not be more off base. Detroit is suffering and broke. I saw this on the news tonight. Poor babies are living in the houses where their humans have left them. There are only 4 animal control officers in Detroit now due to bankruptcy. Are you as out of touch as you sound?

Yes, Detroit is suffering and broke, but this petition refers people to DDR, and I won't support them. I've been fostering dogs in SE MI for over 4 yrs, so I know there is a problem, and dogs are suffering, and more should be done, but DDR is not the answer. 2 yrs ago DDR was given a donation of $1.5 million to build a no kill shelter in Detroit, and they don't even have the plans for a shelter at this point, and they won't be upfront about where the $$ is, or what they're doing with it. ...

So read what I said, yes there is a problem, but signing this petition is giving DDR credit/support and I won't do that. I'll keep working with reputable rescues/people and keep saving dogs.

I would sign this petition, BUT, it would mean a "catch and kill" policy would be bought in, which would be totally against my principles

meanwhile the dogs and cats suffer b/c now no one cares for them/ how f'n dare these communities raise dogs for fighting and protection and then cast them aside when life doesn't go their way omg, these people will suffer terribly from leaving pets homeless to suffer and die / also we must fine people heavily who refuse to neuter or spay/

yes it's humans who are culpable here and certainly NOT jewish folks who have always take animal welfare very seriously/ and YES to the amish who don't seem to give a damn about animal suffering

this is a very, very bad situation! what needs to be remembered is, IT IS NOT THE DOGS FAULT. i,m not totally blaimimg the owners, but they are responsible for thier pets. Detroit can set the example here. lets do this the right way. there are many folks who are willing, i,m sure, in this city that care about the pups. ask for thier help and i bet they will.

Well,they are slowly fixing their crazy problems in Detroit.But,they also need to work on the animal problems too.People,keep your animals in your house or yard dont let them run free,get your pets fixed,and care more about them.But,I know Detroit has a big animal problem.Hope things work out.

This petition calls for humanely dealing with the problem...their idea of humane will be to go in and KILL all the homeless animals...this is against my principles and I do not support it...

I live in Detroit. Yes, we do have a problem with strays. But I'd just like to point out that over the past couple of years we've had several rescues pop up and they're doing a miraculous job of trying to get this under control. Detroit Dog Rescue and Detroit Bully Corps are just two that come to mind. We are not a national disgrace, and I'm offended by the wording. We have fallen into very hard times and there are lovely people here fighting for hope and resurrection. Detroit's...

Detroit's government has definitely had a hand in its downfall, but shifty politics is not unique to Michigan so let's not pretend that it is. Personally I'm proud of our local heroes who go out every day and rescue as many lost souls as they can. Things are happening here for the good of the stray population and I invite you to take that into consideration. Please pick your words with a little more care.

As there are so many empty buildings,couldn't they be turned into dog kennels/ shelters ? The dog population is just going to rise so there needs to be spaying/neutering
