Catalina's Story...

Hello, everyone! Please let me introduce myself. My name is Catalina and I am a 2-year-old, spayed female dog in search of finding my forever home. I came to a local shelter by no fault of my own, pregnant, and very scared. A special young lady at the shelter fell in love with me and took me into her home as a foster so I could give birth to my seven healthy puppies. Boy, was that a lot of work the past 8 weeks! Now, I am ready to find a forever loving home to call my own. I am a great size, coming in around 45 pounds. Everyone always compliments me on my gorgeous brindle coat and auburn sparkling eyes. I am living with another foster dog about my size and we get along great! I would be best suited in home where I can be the center of attention 24/7. I somehow think I am a royal queen as I crave for constant love and affection. Cats and small dogs excite me too much so I need an owner who has dog experience and will help me continue my training. My foster Mommy is very impressed to say I have never had an accident in the home or in my crate. I don’t even chew! All I want to do is lay by your feet, snuggle on your lap, or lay by the heater. If you are looking for a homebody dog who will always be by your side, Catalina is your girl! Adoption fee: $75.

UPCOMING EVENTS:



  • Sunday, February 17: Adoption Event at Lou's, 20779 Mack Ave, Grosse Pointe Woods, from 1-4 p.m. Paws for Life will have adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kittens at Lou's in Grosse Pointe Woods. Shop for pet supplies and meet some cute and furry homeless pets for adoption. Also, meet the infamous Franky, the shop's resident 40-pound sulcata tortoise.


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

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