Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are an extremely small rescue- less than 10 in our care per year. We work for the homeless and abused dogs the city of Detroit.

About Our Rescue Group:

Puppin' Around is a Detroit dog walkers and trainers collective that also does rescue when special dogs find us and have no where else to go.

Come Meet our Pets:

You can meet our adoptable animals by appointment.

Our Adoption Process:

Potential adopters will be screened thoroughly. We are committed to placing our dogs in the best possible lifelong home. Adopters must sign a contract with Puppin' Around that they will complete a training course with approved trainers and provide complete veterinary care. After screening and an interview, there will be a two week in-home trial period with the dog to see if the home is a good fit. Our dogs come spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. We require a $150-200 adoption fee.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
