The holiday season is a time for giving and helping those in need, which includes homeless and stray animals. There are more than 50,000 stray dogs in Detroit alone, and the Detroit Dog Rescue (DDR) is on a mission to save many of those dogs.

DDR’s mission is to create a state-of-the-art, no kill animal center in Detroit and to raise awareness of the growing homeless and stray dog problem. They work closely with the city of Detroit and specialize in community outreach, which includes educating and involving people in their cause.

Chef and owner of Mabel Gray, James Rigato, is one of those people who believes in DDR’s cause. A dog dad to a DDR rescue himself, he was recently moved by the death of a dog named Jack who passed away after multiple bullet wounds. After realizing that there are too many dogs suffering in the Detroit area, he wanted to help DDR in any way he could.

That’s when he came up with the idea for Hot Dogs for Dogs. The weeklong event will start this Sunday and go through Sunday, December 3. Over 30 restaurants and bars will be featured and money raised will help the rescue center out.

Adventure starts with a vehicle that’s up for anything. Trailblazer combines comfort you want, the versatility you need, and the technology to make every moment count.

Each restaurant will feature a unique hot dog creation and every hot dog sold will benefit the Detroit Dog Rescue. Just a few of the long list of restaurants include Grey Ghost, Gather House, Wright & Co., Lady of the House, and of course, Mabel Gray.

All proceeds for the event will go towards DDR and all of their noble causes. If you cannot make it to one of the restaurants next week, be sure to visit the DDR website or their Facebook page to see how you can help this holiday season.
