Detroit Dog Rescue Receives $1.5 Million Gift

A local resident's non-profit group has gotten a big boost.

Detroit Dog Rescue, co-founded by hip-hop artist Daniel "Hush" Carlisle of Grosse Pointe, received $1.5 million in valued stock options from an anonymous donor.

Carlisle and Monica Martino established the Detroit Dog Rescue with a mission to build a no-kill animal shelter and rescue more than 50,000 homeless dogs in the city.

They said the donation, made by a woman who is suffering from a life-threatening illness, will help the organization's efforts to achieve that goal.
