Humane Society of Huron Valley Pet of the Month:

Do you want a dog who loves you more than anything in the whole wide world? Even more than tennis balls or people food? Then meet Paddy! This cute little girl has got a smile that is contagious. She wants to run around, give kisses, and play fetch all day long. Paddy is going to be such a fantastic companion and a true friend to the end. We know that as soon as you meet her, it will be true love. Paddy is a 4 year old terrier/pit bull mix.

Last Chance Animal Rescue Pet of the Month:

Clover was brought to us very pregnant. Her kittens have already found their new home and it's time this wonderful girl found her forever home. Clover is about a year old and full of affection. She is very small for a Maine Coon so we aren't sure what she is mixed with. If you would like to meet Clover please call Nicky at (810)360-0224 or fill out a preadopt on our website at

K9 Stray Rescue League Pet of the Month:

Hi there, my name is Simone! I am an adult Belgian Shepherd mix girl! I am full grown at 50 pounds. I am active, playful, curious, and all around a fantastic job! I love people and I love to play with them! I would make a great walking partner and program watcher! I am a smart girl and would do great with a job! Please come and meet me!

Animal Welfare Society of Southeastern Michigan Pet of the Month:

Whiskey is a handsome 4 1/2-year old boy. He is very social, playful and sassy!
His owners no longer wanted him and he was so confused and scared. He needs a home with patience and that will let him be himself. Whiskey has been vet checked, FELV/FIV tested negative, dewormed, fully vaccinated and neutered. ADOPTION FEE $85.

Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue Pet of the Month:

Against the odds, Agnes found her way to us and is now ready to find a family to call her own. She's a 4 ½ year old Rottweiler mix with a laid-back take on life happy to enjoy the simple things in life. She really enjoys taking walks and exploring, playtime and pizza! Looking at Agnes you wouldn't think she could play like a puppy but give her a noise making toy and she will happily and excitedly romp around with it for hours. Just make sure the furniture is moved or better yet she's outside. She also really likes getting pets and some good brushing to make her coat shine. Agnes thinks people are super company but also has an independent nature that will be fine spending some time doing her own thing too. She has potential in making friends with the right doggie playmate but will need good introductions and time to make sure it's a good fit. She's a big and beautiful girl with a typical Rottweiler's black and brown coat and soft brown eyes. Call soon to meet Agnes, she's already spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped and ready to come home. Call Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue at 734 461-9458 or visit 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.

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.
