Facts about MADDIE

  • Breed: Labrador Retriever Mix
  • Color: Black - With White
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Female
Maddie is a gorgeous, sweet 8 year old Labrador retriever mix we rescued from a hoarding situation where she was kept in a crate 24/7 inside a house. She never was outside. When she first arrived at her foster home she was scared to death and stayed in a very small corner in the kitchen that resembled her "caged life."

Maddie has come a long way over the last few months thanks to her foster family. Needless to say, Maddie LOVES to be outside. She is an active and playful girl. She loves to play fetch and tug of war. She loves to go for walks and has good leash manners. Maddie loves kids, She is very dog social, but we do not know how she is with cats. She is up to date on vaccines, spayed and on heartworm preventive. Maddie does not like to be crated, but she does not get into anything when her foster family goes to work. Maddie needs a forever family that will be patient and show her the affection she truly deserves.

SINCE MADDIE DOES NOT LIKE TO BE CRATED, SHE DOES NOT COME TO OUR ADOPTION EVENTS. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MEET MADDIE, PLEASE GO TO THE MAKE A DIFFERENCE RESCUE FACEBOOK PAGE AND SEND A PRIVATE MESSAGE WITH YOUR PHONE NUMBER, WE WILL SET UP A MEET AND GREET FOR YOU AND MADDIE.

All dogs we rescue stay with us until they find their forever homes. We do not do same day adoptions. Adoption applications are only available at our adoption events. A home visit is required to ensure our dog is going to a safe environment and our dog gets along with your dog(s) and/or cat(s). We require all our dogs over the age of 1 year attend 1 obedience class (6 week session) outside the home. You must live within 1 hour of Birmingham, MI to adopt one of our dogs. Come meet all of our adoptable dogs at Troy Petco on Coolidge near 15 Mile Rd on Sundays from 12-4:30pm. Our adoption fee is $275.

About Make A Difference Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Make A Difference Rescue Inc.(MAD) is a non-profit, no kill, foster based canine rescue. Our rescue was formed for the purpose of preventing abuse to animals. We assist in pulling from rural area shelters with high kill rates, abused, abandoned and neglected animals.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Please come visit us at Petco on Coolidge Hwy in Troy, MI. We are there every Sunday from 12-5pm.

Since we are a foster based rescue, we can not guarantee the attendance of every dog each week. Please email makeadifferencerescue@gmail.com to inquire about a specific dog(s).

Our Adoption Process...

We do require that potential adopters complete an application in person, and a face to face interview with a group representative. We do home inspections and cannot drive more than an hour.

Fully fenced yard is required for our bully breed dogs and all puppy adoptions.

All dogs have a one time adoption donation of $275.
If the dog is over 6 months of age, spaying and neutering is performed by the rescue and at the rescue's cost.
