DDR Bottle Drive Feb 9th

The Detroit Dog Rescue (DDR) has been very supportive of our community and getting to be known throughout the country.  There are too many dogs abused, neglected, or let loose in the Detroit area.  This is a fantastic non-profit that can use your help any time of the year.  Last fall they held an event called "100 Roofs for Woofs" which included donations of lumber and talent to make and paint 100 dog houses for dogs with no shelter in Detroit.  Check out The DDR FaceBook Page.

DDR is holding a bottle and can drive February 9th from 9am-3pm at the Blarney Stone Pub.  27253 Woodward Avenue, Berkley (North of 11 Mile).

Other ways to help: volunteer, give blankets, food, connections to vets, connections to media coverage, or money.  Check out their website and tell your friends.  DDR Website
