Theresa’s Story: Rescuing Innocent Dogs on the Streets of Detroit

Theresa Sumpter is the founder of Detroit Pit Crew Dog Rescue. Theresa and her incredible network of volunteers answer calls, anytime day or night, to rescue innocent dogs in need. DPC partners with a local veterinary clinic to make sure that each dog gets the medical treatment he/she needs and then works to find foster homes for these sweet animals until they find their forever home. In a few short years, Detroit Pit Crew has saved over 2,100 dogs.
