Why We Care

The "Cannabis and Canines" event by butter Cannabis, in partnership with Rebel Dogs Detroit, combines community engagement with support for animal rescue. Rebel Dogs Detroit, a no-kill rescue collective, focuses on rescuing, rehabilitating, and rehoming abandoned and abused dogs in Detroit. Nationally, around 2.2 million dogs were adopted in 2023, yet 3.1 million dogs enter shelters annually, showing a significant need for increased adoption efforts.

Rebel Dogs Detroit's commitment to not euthanizing animals due to behavioral issues highlights a compassionate approach to animal rescue. Despite this, approximately 390,000 dogs are euthanized in U.S. shelters each year. Events like "Cannabis and Canines" raise awareness about these issues and encourage community involvement.

Hosting such events also promotes responsible pet ownership and supports the humane treatment of animals. Integrating local businesses with charitable causes can help address community challenges, making this a model for similar initiatives nationwide.
