Paws and Think Detroit is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to bringing awareness of how to respond when a dog is abandoned, finding and facilitating foster homes for less fortunate dogs, and educating the community on the importance of saving a dog’s life and the impact it can have on both the dog and the adopter. We believe that the act of “rescuing” a dog is not only life-changing for the dog, but for the rescuer as well. As such, we are committed to dispelling the myths about abandoned or rescued dogs, fears about certain dog breeds and the overall perception of dog adoption.
Paws and Think Detroit is a small Detroit-based rescue and awareness group founded by a couple of avid dog lovers despite working their 9-5 jobs, who have personally rescued dogs in need throughout their lives. After observing a number of unwanted dogs being dumped in our own neighborhood of Palmer Park, we finally chose to take a stand. Every day, dogs are dumped, chained up in the backyard regardless of weather, unfairly judged based on their breed, or dismissed, as being too “dangerous” around kids and others; and with shelters being at capacity the unfortunate reality for most of these dogs is euthanasia. People call us those dog crazy people, and we have officially accepted that title. Please continue to follow and support this organizations journey to find others who share our passion for dogs and want to take the stand with us.
If you are interested in meeting any of the available dogs, or becoming a foster, please email us a completed application and we will call to set up an appointment to do a meet and greet.
