About The Team

Please JOIN OUR TEAM to start fundraising today!

The Michigan Animal Adoption Network (MAAN) is a Metro-Detroit non-profit organization founded in 1994 with a mission to decrease dog and cat homelessness and overpopulation. 

MAAN works very hard to provide proper housing, straw, food, supplies and sterilization to animals in need. It also provides important pet-owner education on proper pet-care.

To date, MAAN has impressively adopted out more than 6,500 dogs/cats through the Adopt-A-Pet program, and assisted nearly 145,000 family homes through the Animal Care Network (ACN). ACN has rescued nearly 19,000 dogs/cats and spayed/neutered nearly 9,550 animals. These programs have proudly received national recognition from Nickelodeon News and Best Friends Animal Society. ACN even received an Animal Planet award nomination! This organization survives solely on donations from the public to continue lifesaving efforts.

MAAN frequently engages in special promotions and fundraising in an effort to grow their supporter base. The Michigan Animal Adoption Network continually strives for unique ways to fundraise, educate the public, and continue their street rescue efforts and low-cost spay/neuter program.

#PlungeForPaws donations will provide life-saving pet-food and pet-supplies for MAAN’s street rescue efforts for animals in need living in Pontiac, Michigan. Donations will provide straw for outdoor doghouse insulation, and much-needed winter pet supplies.

Please make a life-saving donation today, and help bring warmth to an animal in need this winter! Each dollar raised through the #PlungeForPaws will give a pet in need a second chance at life and the Christmas miracle they deserve. Thank you!

#PlungeForPaws, 2019  

Fundraiser and Event Weekend Details

Every dollar (and goosebump) raised through Bark-A-Bout's #PlungeForPaws Fundraiser will give your favorite pet rescue the ability to continue their mission to bring warmth and health to animals in need this winter!! Money raised will help pay for critical life-saving pet-care supplies and owner education. Without intervention, unfortunately many abandoned and chained outdoor pets will die a very slow and painful death this winter of hypothermia, dehydration and starvation.

Bark-A-Bout invites all 2-legged and 4-legged supporters to raise donations. Each dog or human registered plunger who raises $100 or more can #TakeThePlunge in Bark-A-Bout's indoor pool alongside other supporters of their favorite pet rescue! Whether dog our human paw'ticipants go knee-deep, waist high, take the full plunge, or stay dry, each dollar raised will help keep local pets warm and healthy this winter!
