Southfield (CW50) – During the COVID-19 Pandemic, an increase in the number of animals being fostered has helped Detroit Dog Rescue find homes for animals. With the Stay-at-Home order lifted and Michigan entering Phase 4 of reopening, it is expected that a lot of people will go back to work. This leaves a lot of questions about whether or not the fostered/adopted dogs during the pandemic will be returned.
