Thank you for your interest in the Michigan Animal Adoption Network (MAAN) and Animal Care Network (ACN). All of our operations can only be successful through volunteer efforts and donations.

Fostering animals entails bringing unknown animals into your home, maintaining all medical care, working hard on socialization and training, and generally treating them as your own pets so that they are ready to be pets in someone else’s home. Most animals available for adoption in our Adopt-A-Pet program are housed in our foster care system. Foster caregivers are encouraged to maintain a relationship with adopters. After all, you’ve put a lot of work into making these animals ready for placement into permanent homes. Foster caregivers must also agree to take the animal back into foster care should the placement not work out. Fostering an animal can be a most rewarding endeavor.
Please contact Chris Wisswell if you feel you could offer an animal a temporary home.
Low-Cost Vaccination Clinics
The Michigan Animal Adoption Network schedules several Low-Cost Protect-A-Pet Vaccine Clinics each year. If you are able to volunteer, please contact our office to sign up! We are looking for 20-30 volunteers to assist us. Check events page for scheduled clinics.
Testimonial: “Dear Chris, The vaccine clinic on Saturday was amazing. It was by far one of the best organized events I have ever taken part in. It was very satisfying to be able to help so many animals and to meet owners who love and care for their pets. Please keep me on your list for next April.” ~Marilyn
Animal Care Network
The Animal Care Network is an endeavor consisting of teams of volunteers who visit low income areas in suburban Wayne and Oakland counties each weekend to provide supplies and attention to strictly outdoor animals who have been neglected. We are looking for volunteers able to cope with the often harsh conditions we see.
These animals spend their entire lives outside, often under miserable conditions. ACN volunteers visit approximately 10 to 30 locations each weekend and are there to provide doghouses, clean straw, fresh food and water in clean bowls, tie-out chains, collars, and a little attention to animals and owners in need of assistance. ACN runs are not always pretty and volunteers have encountered some awful situations. But knowing that we are easing an animal’s suffering is all we need to keep us going. We also work to educate owners about proper pet care and have developed an aggressive spay/neuter campaign in these areas. If you have a few hours each week or each month, this program could be right up your alley!

Unauthorized ACN activities will result in immediate dismissal of the volunteer from both the ACN and MAAN.
Throughout the year, we have bowling and Texas Hold ‘em fundraisers. We always need volunteers to help us make these events a success! Please contact Chris Wisswell if you would like to help with any of these types of events.
