Slade's Story...
Hi everyone!! My name is Slade. I am about 3 years old and a Black Lab mix. As you can see I would rather be right next to you to be petted then have my picture taken.

All about me...
I want someone to make it all about me. I use to have a mom and 5 other dog friends and we all lived in the house and it was great. Then mom got a boy friend and he did not like us so we had to spend the next 1 1/2 years outside. And you know how much attention we got ? None. Well after living outside by ourselves we all where taken to the shelter, all of my friends found new homes and I did not. I was going to be put to sleep because I am 'just another' black lab mix out there that nobody wanted. But ResQ 4 Paws came just in time and took me home. I have gained all my weight back and look great. Now I just need that forever home that will love me forever!

My training & manners info.
I love to go for car rides, I walk pretty well on a leash and my house and crate manners are all most there. Remember I was living outside for 1 1/2 years and there are no rules out there. So I need a family that wants to teach me all the good things in life and make me their best friend forever. I would love to go to doggie school too.

Are you the right family for me?
I need a family that is going to be able to be good and have patience with me. I am afraid to go outside sometimes, I am afraid that is where I am going to end up living again. I would do good with older kids. I get along with dogs my size. I do not like dogs that are a lot bigger then me.

How I feel about other furry creatures.
I get along with the other dogs.

How to adopt me!
Our animals are in private foster homes, only approved applicants may schedule appointments to meet the animals. A complete application should be submitted and a volunteer will contact you upon approval. We have a minimum age requirement of 21, more information regarding adoption policies can be seen at our website The adoption fee of $200 - $300 includes age-appropriate vaccinations, spay or neuter, micro- chipping, heartworm test, 30 days of free ShelterCare (TM) pet insurance. To fill out an application, please visit You can e-mail us but please realize we are volunteers and trying to keep up, applications take precedence and they are approved based on the best home for the dog NOT on a first come first serve basis. E-mailing also gives us more time to spend with the animals verses answering the phone and returning phone calls.

Shop with Resq 4 Paws in mind! The dogs will appreciate it!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Slade, a Ortonville Labrador Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever for sale in Ortonville, or seeking a Labrador Retriever dog from a breeder in Ortonville.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Ortonville already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Ortonville breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever breeders who help with Labrador Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Ortonville paves the way for another one to be saved.
