WARREN — A new Warren Police Department endeavor aims to make sure animals aren’t slipping through the cracks when household budgets are tight.

Organized by Warren Animal Control, the Animal Outreach Program provides a conduit through which resources and donations from residents and businesses flow to those who need them to care for pets and stray animals.

Unopened pet food can be dropped off at the Christopher M. Wouters Warren Police Headquarters, located at 29900 Civic Center Boulevard; Pet Valu, located at 13828 E. 14 Mile Road; and Pet Supplies Plus, at 26230 Hoover Road. Cash donations used to pay for medical care, including vaccinations, wound treatment or flea and heartworm medications, can be made online through the All About Animals Rescue website at www.allaboutanimals.org, along with a notation in the comment section earmarking the donation for Warren Police Department Animal Control.

“All About Animals is an incredible asset for us, and without donations, we can’t keep taking care of injured, stray or owned animals,” Warren Animal Control officer Lisa Taylor said. “They help us with whatever the animals need.”

Assistance through the program is only available to Warren residents, and proof of residency is required. Support is dependent upon donations received and will be distributed as resources become available.

“As pet owners, both Mayor Fouts and myself recognize that pets are equal members of your family, and being able to supply them nourishment and the healthcare they need is important,” Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer said.
