of the Month
Annabelle's Info...I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.
Miss Annabelle is a sweet, pretty, and petite lil lady, with a purr that is far bigger than she is lol!
As sweet as she is, Annabelle tends to be a shy gal when you 1st meet her, but once she warms up to you, she prefers not to share your attention hahaha! This sweet gal would do best in a home with either 1 other cat, or by herself, because that's when her true loving personality shines through. This tiny lady would love it if you consider her to be your new family member.

Diamond AKA Luna's Info...I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Diamond AKA Luna's Story...
I was born March 5th 2014 and now weighing in at 68 lbs . I'm hoping my perfect forever family will find me soon - i have been waiting a long time. I live with an awesome foster family, loving people that take great care of me. I live with fun foster dog siblings and my foster family have kids that come over to visit and play.
I'm the little tom boy in my family. I like to wrestle and romp . Playtime is my favorite time, but when it's time to relax and snuggle count me in! I've learned all the important stuff too; going potty outside makes my family happy, walking nice on leash gets me extra time outside and trotting next to my foster mom's bike gives her the exercise time she wants.
If you would like to be greeted at the door with a toothy smile and unconditional love I'm ready to be your baby girl. Go to providingforpaws.org and complete an adoption application. Diamond's adoption fee is $250, she will is up to date on all vaccines. micro-chipped, spayed and heartworm negative.

Foster Homes Needed
Rozzie was saved because a foster home was found for her in her desperate time of need. She was found as a stray, starving and cold in the city of Inkster. Clearly dumped with her long nails, we could tell she had not been on the streets as those who grind their nails from walking on cement for a long period of time. Obviously used for breeding with her teets being stretched as far as they could possibly be. She also suffered trauma to the right side with a ruptured ear drum on the right and an eye that is blind. Without having a home to go to, Roz may have ended up in a high kill shelter and likely euthanized. Thanks to our already maxed foster home, she was given a place to get her proper feedings every two hours, lots of love and TLC, while she gained back her strength. Because we are a no kill rescue, we do not euthanize for space as shelters sadly often have to do. We take only what we have room to take. Therefore, without foster homes to help us, more dogs like will likely have to die by having to go to high kill shelters if we do not have the foster homes to care for them. Please consider opening your heart and home for those in need of your help to live!
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. Help your new foster be loved and teach them basic training skills to be obedient for their furever home. Providing for Paws does pay the cost for our volunteers to take a training class at no cost to you. One class is a $450.00 value if you were to pay for this on your own. Another benefit that is good for fosters who already have animals in the home and can use this training information for their own pets.

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.
