Sweet Katie's Story...
Sweet, sweet Katie has been given a second chance at life, but her fight isn't over yet. She is currently at a local shelter, scheduled to be euthanized later this week (week of March 17, 2008). We must find Katie a foster care home where she can live and be cared for while we search for the right forever home for her. If you can foster or want to adopt sweet Katie, please email pawsforliferescue@comcast.net right away.

When found Katie was emaciated, freezing cold and very distraught. Right away, she curled into the animal control officer's arms for warmth. She looked to have just had puppies, although no puppies were found. Katie had some scrapes and cuts from life on her own, abandoned to fend for herself. The scrapes have healed and what started out as a thin dry coat of fur is now shiney, full and healthy. Katie is so grateful and so happy to have been rescued. She's very friendly and lights up whenever taken for a walk. She loves attention and she loves to play. She enjoys toys and romping outside in the sunshine. She's such a happy, sweet-natured dog! Katie has a new best friend, a male dog named Gage (also in need of a home but not as urgently as poor Katie). They've become best buds at the shelter, so we know Katie is good with male dogs and enjoys the companionship. Katie is very sweet and affectionate. She is mellow and will be a great, loyal, loving companion for life. She is approximately 3 years old and she weighs 40 lbs. She still needs to gain just a little more weight, but she's looking good. The pictures are from when she first arrived at the shelter, so she's much healthier now. Katie is scheduled to be euthanized later this week. If you can help by providing her a foster care home, please email pawsforliferescue@comcast.net. We really want to save Sweet Katie!

Adoption Process:
Send an email to pawsforliferescue@comcast.net to tell us which pet you're interested in and we'll send you a questionnaire that will help us make the best match for you and your new pet. We then arrange a location, date and time for you to meet some pets. If the meeting goes well and everyone is happy, you begin the two-week trial run with the pet as part of your family. This is a trial period to give your dog or cat time to adjust to their new home, new people, new routine, etc., and for you to decide if it's a match and the right pet for you. At the end of two weeks (some people extend the trial time and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then you sign the adoption contract and pay the adoption fee.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sweet Katie, a Troy American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) for sale in Troy, or seeking a American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) dog from a breeder in Troy.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Troy 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 Troy 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 American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) breeders who help with American Staffordshire Terrier/Terrier (Unknown Type, Medium) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
