Humane Society of Huron Valley Pet of the Month:

Do you want a dog who will be your best friend? Then Morgan is waiting to meet you! Morgan has a wiggly butt that won't quit wagging! She absolutely loves people and will shower you with unconditional love. She might be a sixty pound Pit Bull, but she thinks she is a lap dog and will surely make herself quite comfy getting nice and close to you. She loves going on walks around the town, but she would also love to snuggle up on the couch and take a nap. She is looking for a home where she can have some fun, but things are generally fairly calm. If Morgan sounds like the dog for you, come meet her today!

Morgan is currently living in one of our wonderful foster homes. Adopting from foster is easy! Please email or call (734)662-5585 to arrange to meet Morgan today!

Last Chance Animal Rescue Pet of the Month:

Last Chance Rescue currently has no pets available for adoption - which is great news!

K9 Stray Rescue League Pet of the Month:

Hi there, I'm Pearl. I am a four year old pit bull/ pug mix girl. I love to go for walks and play with my friends. I am looking for my forever home, one that will love me and give me lots of attention. I do best with women, I have a hard time being comfortable or warming up to men. I have a soft, affectionate personality. I would love a quieter home. I am in foster, so please fill out an application at and my foster mom will be in touch!

Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan Pet of the Month:

Random is a beautiful 2-year old female cat. She is very social, playful and sweet! Random is in our cage-free cat room so she gets along well with other cats. Random has been vet checked, FELV/FIV tested negative, dewormed, fully vaccinated and spayed. ADOPTION FEE $85.

Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue Pet of the Month:

Get ready to have a good time with Titus. This 1 year and 4 month old Pit Terrier mix is one lovable and handsome handful of goofy, friendly and energetic fun. His curious and outgoing attitude towards everyone has him easily making friends and being the life of the party. We aren't sure where he came from just that he showed up on a board member's back porch like he knew it was the right place to find the help he needed. Titus really has nothing in his heart but the joy, love and excitement for life he wants to share with all he meets. He plays in the yard well with other high-energy dogs and in fact seems to be fine taking the more submissive role when needed. Titus loves meeting and being with people of all ages and will make an excellent family addition that will add tons of fun, love and companionship to a home. He's still a young pup and will need some training to cement good behaviors and relationships but will likely enjoy and excel at it. His short tan and white coat covers a muscular, strong body ready to walk, run and play the day away. His adorable face is almost always sporting a goofy grin and ready to give out sloppy kisses. He's already neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Come meet Titus today by calling Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue at 734 461-9458 or visiting our website for more information.

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.

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.
