Nola Sweetheart's Story...
Hi! My name is Nola! I am the happiest homeless dog ever. I love people. I'm always smiling with tail wagging and body wiggling. I am a lovebug. Let's cuddle, snuggle and share affection. I love it! I enjoy companionship and I have a friendly, upbeat, outgoing personality. I love rolling in the grass and getting belly rubs. I give wonderful kisses, too. I am a spayed female mixed breed dog who is 4 years old and who weighs 49 lbs. I came to the shelter because my owner is no longer able to care for me. I am housetrained and well behaved. I'm a smart girl and a people please. I know sit and I work hard for treats and praise. I love to play with toys and to run in the yard. I also enjoy taking walks. I did well on my face-to-face temperament test with other dogs. I'm an all-around wonderful dog who loves being showered with attention and affection. I will make a lucky someone very happy when they decide to take me home. I promise to be the loyal, devoted, loving best friend that you're looking for. Just give me a chance and prepare to fall in love. Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

I live at the Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center at 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills. You can visit me there any time the shelter is open. The shelter will not put me up for adoption because of my appearance, so my only way out of the shelter alive is through a rescue.

TO ADOPT: apply online: www.pawsforliferescue.org. Complete the adoption/foster application and a volunteer will contact you to answer questions and to schedule a meet-n-greet.

VISIT: Oakland County Animal Control and Pet Adoption Center, 1700 Brown Rd in Auburn Hills any time the shelter is open, Monday - Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. or Saturdays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Adoption and Foster Care Application

NOTE ABOUT BREED LABELING: Visual breed identification of dogs is unreliable and usually inaccurate. So, for most of our adoptable dogs, we are only guessing at predominant breed or breed mix. We get to know each dog as an individual and will do our best to describe each of our dogs based on personality, not by breed label.

Why is labeling a dog such a big deal? A label will stick with a dog for the rest of its life. A label can mean discrimination, losing its home or even death. Labels are a problem for the dogs when we, as the local experts on animals, allow adopters, politicians and community members to think that the label we assign can predict who that dog is or will be.

Examples:

Adoption Process:
Complete the application at www.pawsforliferescue.org. 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 mandatory, minimum two-week adjustment period with the pet as part of your family. You will pay the non-refundable adoption fee at the start of the two-week adjustment period. This pending period allows your new 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 adjustment time as needed and that's fine too), if everyone is happy, then we finalize the adoption. Feel free to email if you have any questions.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Nola Sweetheart, 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.
