of the Month
Charlie's Info...I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
I am Mr. Charlie Baker . . . you can call me Charlie or Charlie B. I was very lucky and adopted many months ago to a wonderful mama, but she got sick. She couldn't remember to take care of herself and me. Mama had to move to a place where people could take care of her. I moved back to my rescue and I am staying with a foster family. The humans are really nice to me, but the other cats don't like me. They didn't like it cause I needed a place to stay.
I am a happy go lucky, friendly dude. I get along with everybody and anybody, two legs or four. . young or old. My foster family tells me I could be the purrfect addition to a family . . . old enough to not be crazy and young enough to still be fun. I am really hoping a nice family will want me to be part of their family forever, I have lots of love to give.
I am fully vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and tested negative for both FELV & FIV. Remember I'm CHARLIE BAKER and I'm ready to meet your family.
My adoption fee is only $100 . . . . I'll pay you back with loads of snuggle time.

Adoptable Pup of the month
Olive's Info...I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
I was born February 2017 and at 7 months old only weigh about 30 pounds! I'm not gonna be a big girl!
My life started out pretty tough, when I was rescued with my sister Sage, I was really sick. But my wonderful foster Mommy knew something was wrong and got me right into the vet! Now I'm 100% better and ready for my forever family!
I love being the pillow for my sister Sage, its fun to snuggle! There is nothing BETTER then belly rubs from every human I meet! I love to chew, and make sure its always on MY toys (furniture looks delicious but I don't like to get in trouble). Playing with the ball in the backyard is so much fun, and I'm learning to bring it back!
Go to providingforpaws.org and complete an adoption application. Olive's adoption fee is $250, she is up to date on all vaccines. micro-chipped, spayed and heartworm negative.

Foster Homes Needed
This BEAUTIFUL, fun, water loving girl is not only up for adoption, but also in need of a foster home!
Mary came to us in very bad shape. She was found as a stray with a very severe ear infection. After her vet check we were given sad news, she is heart-worm positive. Thankfully with treatment, she is doing wonderful!
She is about 6-7 years old and we are looking for a foster or forever home with older children (she is a BIG girl and a little clumsy) and no other pets.
ALL the volunteers LOVE ME! They say I'm goofy and bonkers for water. I mean who doesn't like the water!!! I enjoy short (cause I am still recovering from heartworm) walks and I am great on a leash. Please consider ME as your next FURmember.
We provide everything for our foster's bed, crates, toys, collars & leash, food, treats, bowls, vaccines & preventatives. You supply the love and care they need..
Requirements to foster are:
All animals in the home must be up to date on Rabies, Distemper and Lepto vaccines (Lepto for medium to large breed dogs only). As well as to be on Flea, Tick and Heartworm preventatives. We also as that you take your foster animals to very flexible vet appointments when needed and are asked to bring the foster animal to one event per month or find transportation for that animal to attend one event.

UPDATE: BRUCE HAS BEEN ADOPTED!
Bruce pictured above and his video story below, also needs a new foster home. He has been in and out of our kennels and placed in three different foster homes since coming to us in the spring of 2015. None is by any fault of his own, just simply bad luck. We initially thought Bruce might not be able to be placed with other dogs, however he has been retested again recently and is doing better around other dogs now. We also cat tested Bruce and with a firm cat that will put him in his place, he is afraid of them. Please watch Bruce's video below and consider opening your heart and home for him. He was found just outside of River Rouge Animal Shelter as he walked up to the facility still wearing the heavy shackles that were wrapped around his neck and legs. Bruce must have known he would be helped by going to the shelter doors unexpectedly. Bruce was used for bait in fighting rings and someone took a pair of scissors to attempt to crop his ears on their own, which required surgery to repair the infected areas of the ears from this type of torture he endured. However, you couldn't find a more loving and sweet boy inside this dog despite the abuse and neglect that he sustained. He also suffered from MRSA, which he was treated for, as well as some pretty bad allergies, which we are working on helping him with and is still struggling with. Every foster that has had Bruce simply loves and adores him. They just haven't been able to keep him due to the fosters current living situations and having to move to homes that don't allow bully breeds.
