Maci's Story...
Happy Holidays, everyone! My name is Maci! I am a little girl with a big heart in need of a forever home and someone to love for life. I'm about 4 months, but I only weigh 11 lbs., so I'm not going to be a very big dog when I'm all grown up. I love people and enjoy being close to them and spending time with them. I'm not a fan of being left alone right now. I get along great with other dogs and the cat here in my foster care home. I think big dogs are so cool and I want to be everyone's friend. I am working on potty training and I'm doing really, really well. I learn from the big dogs here, too. I sleep in my crate at night and I'm doing really good in that area as well. I'm a lovable, playful, curious puppy who adores everyone. I do have a more laid back personality than a lot of other pups my age. I'm not real hyper or crazy. I'm just happy and content to have companionship and love. Please give me a chance to become your newest family member! If you have the time and patience to raise a wonderful puppy like me, please apply today! Adoption fee: $100. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, 60 days of free pet insurance and microchip.

Apply online: www.pawsforliferescue.org. Complete this form and a volunteer will contact you to answer questions and to schedule a meet-n-greet.

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.

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

Maci, a Troy Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Troy, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) puppy 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
