Pit Bull Terrier
A Sterling Heights, MI 48312 rescue helping to find loving homes for dogs, cats.
1 - 3 of 3 Adoptable Pets at This Shelter
Precious Pets Adoption League does not have an actual shelter, but we are generally based in Macomb County, Michigan, and regularly hold adoption shows in Shelby Township [at the Shelby Township Petco].
We generally serve the Tri-county area--Macomb, Oakland and Wayne Counties, but adopters don't have to live in one of those counties. We have rescued many dogs and cats from further away--for example, from animal controls in northern Michigan and Monroe County, and, even from other states.
In addition, we rescue many dogs from Puerto Rico. Residents use the term Sato to refer to mutts on the island. Satos are intelligent, sweet, good dogs, but in Puerto Rico, they often live in horrible conditions and have little chance of finding a good home.
Tremendous efforts are being made by various rescue organizations to create awareness of the situation and to save and rehabilitate as many of these poor souls as possible. We are working extensively with Huellitas de Esperanza de Salinas (Paws of Hope of Salinas), a Salinas, Puerto Rico based rescue, to rescue stray dogs off of the streets, get them to health, and fly them to Michigan to find them permanent loving homes.
Precious Pets Adoption League is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to finding suitable homes for companion animals. We rescue and place animals of all ages. We are unpaid volunteers. Love for animals and your tax-deductible donations keep us going.
We do not have an actual shelter, so our animals stay in foster homes until adoption. We have no limit on how long we hold onto an adoptable animal--we have had dogs and cats that remained in a foster home for more than a year before finally being adopted. We could always use more volunteers willing to foster dog or cats, as there are so many more animals in need.
We believe that homeless and abandoned dogs and cats deserve a second chance at life. Most of the animals we rescue would not have much of a chance if we didn't take them. Some of them came from animal controls that would have put them down or even sold them to research if we hadn't intervened. Others were found stray or abandoned and would likely have died on the street or wound up at an animal control where they would have little chance of being adopted. Some of the dogs we have taken in were Pit Bulls found stray in Detroit--if we hadn't taken these dogs, they would have faced a bleak future (i.e., possible death at animal control or most shelters, or starvation or worse if left stray on the streets).
We feel it is vital that we cannot turn our backs on companion animals that have been thrown away by people.
We hold adoption shows [of mainly just cats] on Saturdays and Sundays 12 pm - 4 pm at the Shelby Township Petco, 7554 26 Mile Road [west of Van Dyke on the south side of the road]. For more specific instructions, you may call the Petco directly at (586) 697-9039.
