Founded in 2023, Rescue Pets Inc. is a volunteer run, foster based, 501(c)3 pet rescue in South East Michigan. We strive to rescue and rehabilitate; when they're ready, our pets are rehomed to their perfect forever family.
After years working in animal rescue (each with various organizations), we are determined to pave the way with what we believe is a new kind of rescue.
What is a "new kind of rescue" ? To us, rescue should not be motivated by money. All of our members are volunteers. This means that all donations go directly to the animals, not paying any form of salary!
We firmly believe that rescues should be honest, passionate, and friendly! We strive to make personal and meaningful connections with our community and continue to build upon those relationships.
Our pets are not just animals to us, they become part of our family! We look forward to expanding our RPI family as we love updates and staying connected!

Hi my name is Justina and I have been an animal lover as long as I can remember. I dove fully into rescue in 2019. I am a wife, a mother to 4 amazing children and have quite a few pets of my own.. not including the endless cycle of fosters coming and going through our home. My husband is my biggest support and dove head first with me into the craziness that is rescue/foster life. It brings our whole family so much joy and teaches our children many wonderful life lessons. We strive to do our very best for these dogs be it Rescue, Recovery or Re Home and then we Repeat!
Hi! I’m Molly! I am an engineer at General Motors and currently pursuing my MBA at Kettering University! I began working with rescue dogs in 2017 by volunteering at a local shelter. I started fostering in 2020 and joined full force with a local rescue group! I was very eager to help! As we grew the rescue, my passion to help flourished. I decided to venture into a new space and partner with Justina to make an impact! I have fostered a variety of doggies of all ages and sizes. I love working with the dogs and the people! I have always had a passion for animals and love to see them thrive in their perfect forever homes!
Where do our animals come from?
Animals in our care come from many different situations. Some examples are:
Local Animal Control Facilities
Transfers from other rescue groups
Non-local Animal Shelters
We do not discriminate where our pets come from! We partner with local and national groups to try and help stop the overpopulation of homeless animals!
Rescue Pets Inc. was formerly known as "At Home Dog Rescue"! In 2023, we decided we needed to revamp, rebrand, and reimagine the rescue! We got together and as a team, created what is now known as Rescue Pets Inc. With new leadership, more resources, and a new mission; Rescue Pets Inc. was born!
