Humane Society of Huron Valley Pet of the Month:

Meet darling Pippa! She has got a wiggly butt that simply won't quit! Her tail goes a mile a minute when she sees a friend coming her way. She has so much love (and so many kisses) to give! This happy girl would love to spend lots of time playing and cuddling with you. She is a high energy girl who will need a fair amount of exercise to stay happy and healthy. Her little wrinkly, squishy face is absolutely going to steal your heart! Come meet her today!

Last Chance Animal Rescue Pet of the Month:

Dinah is a very unusual looking cat with gorgeous markings. She is super tiny and petite. She has been in a foster with children and is very sweet with them. We believe she is about 18 months or so. To meet Dinah please call Nicky at (810)360-0224 or fill out a preadopt on our website at

K9 Stray Rescue League Pet of the Month:

Hello, I'm Lopez! I am a year and a half old Beagle mix boy! I am just over 20 pounds. I am a fun and go lucky kind of boy! I can entertain myself for hours with my toys. I am a vocal guy, I love to bark at my toys and at people and just to hear myself talk! I am spunky but I also really love to just curl up into people's laps. I do have a hound nose, so I will need a fenced in yard. I am a great guy, please come and meet me!

The Michigan Animal Rescue League believes that every animal deserves the highest quality of life. Each and every animal that comes through our door is given unconditional love and regard in the form of physical care, socialization and the day to day joys that an animal would receive in a home.


We do not euthanize our animals except when injury, disease or temperament make other options impossible. They have been around since 1953.

K-9 Stray Rescue League is a state and federally licensed non-profit group formed in 1990 primarily to save dogs on the euthanasia list at local animal shelters. Most of the dogs at county and local shelters are there through no fault of their own. All they need is a loving, understanding, and responsible new home. We strongly encourage you to give these dogs a "New Leash on Life" by adopting from a local or county shelter, a humane society, or an organization like ours.

Adoption fees are $125-$225

Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan

27796 John R
Madison Heights, MI 48071



A no-kill shelter whose mission is to find homes for as many adoptable animals as humanly possible. To educate the public on the importance of spaying and neutering to help control the pet population. To put an end to the needless and senseless killing by shelters of healthy adoptable puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.


The Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan ("AWS") was formed in 1982 by a group of concerned veterinarians and individuals who were alarmed at the rate of euthanasia performed on healthy and social cats, dogs, kittens and puppies. The goal of the organization is to secure homes for as many rescued animals as possible.  In the past 30 years, AWS has found homes for over 20,000 "unwanted" felines and canines. These puppies, kittens, dogs and cats are rescued from various pounds throughout Michigan and Ohio, some are strays, and some are owner surrenders.
