Milo's Story...

Hi! My name is Milo and I’m such a handsome boy! I was born in March 2010, adopted as an 8-week-old puppy, then returned to the Rescue when my family decided to move in with a "friend" who doesn't want a dog in his house because he "has a lot of art supplies." It made me very sad. I hope my next family will be mine forever. I promise to be good. I’m just a giant puppy and I need some obedience training, patience and structure. I’m smart and very trainable. I enjoy car rides, belly rubs and ear scratches. I’m friendly with everyone, affectionate and playful. I love to jog, go camping and play with other dogs. I’m active, energetic and full of life. I can go, go, go and like to play at doggie day camp. I love to learn and I want a family to call my own - one who will never leave me behind again. Give me the home of my dreams. Adoption fee: $75. Adoption fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations and spay/neuter.

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 the link above or send an email to info@pawsforliferescue.org 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 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

Milo, a Troy Greyhound/Great Dane dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Greyhound/Great Dane for sale in Troy, or seeking a Greyhound/Great Dane 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 Greyhound/Great Dane breeders who help with Greyhound/Great Dane rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Troy paves the way for another one to be saved.
