About Providing for Paws

About Our Rescue Group...


Providing for Paws mission is to rescue neglected, abused and sick animals, or animals that have been displaced from their home. We frequently work in communities that have a high rate of stray animals such as Detroit. We are commonly in these areas and working to educate owners with animals in bad situations, where we often find strays that come to us very neglected or abused.

Providing for Paws has several people asking if they can surrender their family pet(s) to us every day. We first ask to see if we can help the families keep their pets in the home by offering our services. When out on the road or when we are checking on an animal that might be in jeopardy, we always try to educate the owner(s) because we feel education is the key to reducing the number of animals that end up in rescues and shelters.

If we can provide services to help keep the animal in that home while supporting and educating the owner on proper pet care, this will benefit both the animal and rescue organizations. If we feel the animal is being neglected by their owner after we try to educate them, we will ask the owner to surrender that animal to us or another rescue organization, for the greater good of the animal. Unfortunately, the need for rescue and shelter placement is much greater than the availability and typically outweighs the help we have to offer through rescue.

Our goal is to someday have no more abused, neglected or displaced animals.
