The Michigan Animal Adoption Network (MAAN) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to animal care, rescue and adoption in the Metro Detroit area.
Our volunteers are devoted to finding new homes for displaced dogs and cats – animals who have lost their homes due to owner foreclosures, divorces, allergies, unwanted gifts, unwanted litters or found as strays. We engage in many special promotions and other fundraising efforts to further our efforts in spaying/neutering, our street rescue program, veterinary care to re-home animals and educate the public on animal welfare issues.
MAAN also has a special street-team division called The Animal Care Network (ACN). ACN is a group of volunteers who spend weekdays and weekends in low-income areas in suburban Wayne and Oakland counties, providing care and assistance to pet owners with both indoor and outdoor pets. Each year we provide a community service to pet owners and host low-cost animal vaccination clinics and spay/neuter clinics to protect the animals in our community. The Animal Care Network has won national acclaim and recognition for this unique program that “hits the streets” assisting animals in need of rescue or assistance.
