Whoopie's Info...

I am already spayed, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and not good with kids.

Whoopie's Story...
Hi! My name is Whoopie! I am part polar bear and part Australian cattle dog. Just look at this face! Irresistible! I'm a spayed female herding dog. Herding and protection are my instinctual duties and I take it seriously. So if a group of kids were in my yard with me, I would herd them around where I need them to be. So because I am so very, very smart, I need activities and jobs to do. I need someone who will spend time with me, teach me all the great things that every dog should know and provide me with routine and leadership. I thrive in that environment. If someone doesn't take the lead, I will try to step up and run the show. When I am in a routine and someone is my confident leader, I am a happy girl. I like to take walks and car rides. I enjoy being with people and getting attention. I am mellow and calm, very quiet and independent. Please give me a chance to be your newest family member. You'll be so glad you did! Adoption fee: $75 and includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, microchip, spay/neuter and 30 days of free pet insurance.

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.

About Paws for Life Rescue and Adoption

About Our Rescue Group...

Paws for Life Rescue and Adoption is a 501c3 non-profit animal welfare organization, run by hard-working dedicated volunteers who rescue homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. We use a network of loving foster care homes where animals stay until their forever homes find them.

Our mission is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. We believe in matching animals and families to find the right fit for everyone. We promise to exhaust all efforts to place adoptable pets in lifelong, loving homes. Our goal is to find the best home possible for the homeless pets in our care.

We host adoption events the third Saturday of every month from noon to 4 p.m. at Petco, 4820 S. Baldwin Rd, Lake Orion/Auburn Hills.
