My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Meet Roxanne: A Special Soul in Search of a Loving Home

A beautiful female pit mix with a unique story to tell. Roxie's journey began three years ago when she was found, tied to a fence, left with a past we can only imagine. Today, she's 5 years old, 57 lbs, and patiently waiting for her forever family.

Roxanne has come a long way, but she does have some "stranger danger" tendencies, and trust doesn't come easy. We've been diligently working with her, but it's been a slow process.

To ensure Roxie finds the perfect home, we're looking for a special adopter—someone who understands the value of patience, love, and structure. Roxie thrives with proper introductions to dogs and would be best suited to a quiet household with no kids.

Here's what makes Roxanne truly special:

She's a clever girl who knows commands like "stay," "sit," and "OK" as her release cue from a sitting position.
Roxie walks beautifully on a leash and adores car rides.
She has a zest for playtime, loves her toys, and enjoys going on adventurous walks.

Roxanne has been waiting for her forever home for far too long, and we're committed to helping her find it. We're even willing to cover training expenses once she's in a permanent home because we believe in her potential.

If you think you're the patient and loving soul Roxie needs, please consider filling out an application to make her a part of your life. Together, we can show Roxanne that she's truly the best girl ever!

More about this rescue


Providing for Paws mission is to rescue neglected, abused and sick animals, or animals that have been displaced from their home. We frequently work in communities that have a high rate of stray animals such as Detroit. We are commonly in these areas and working to educate owners with animals in bad situations, where we often find strays that come to us very neglected or abused.

Providing for Paws has several people asking if they can surrender their family pet(s) to us every day. We first ask to see if we can help the families keep their pets in the home by offering our services. When out on the road or when we are checking on an animal that might be in jeopardy, we always try to educate the owner(s) because we feel education is the key to reducing the number of animals that end up in rescues and shelters.

If we can provide services to help keep the animal in that home while supporting and educating the owner on proper pet care, this will benefit both the animal and rescue organizations. If we feel the animal is being neglected by their owner after we try to educate them, we will ask the owner to surrender that animal to us or another rescue organization, for the greater good of the animal. Unfortunately, the need for rescue and shelter placement is much greater than the availability and typically outweighs the help we have to offer through rescue.

Our goal is to someday have no more abused, neglected or displaced animals.
