Dogs In Care

DOGS IN CARE CURRENTLY

This page reflects the dogs we currently have in care and are or will be available for adoption.  If you are interested, you can find the application on the menu above under the tab “Application”.  Please print the application and fill it out carefully.  It must be mailed in with your original signature on it. 

Should you have questions and want to talk to someone, please keep in mind that many of our volunteers also have full time jobs as well as fostering responsibilities.  They would appreciate it very much if you would make sure to call before 8pm.  If you leave a message for them, they will return it as soon as possible but on rare occasion, it may take a day or two.  We try never to take more than 48 hours.  Phone numbers are in the banner above.


Toby, age almost 11, came into foster care because the grandchildren came to live in his home.  The children are toddlers and do things that toddlers do and it just wasn’t going to work out.  Toby has been a nice dog with humans although a bit headstrong.  He has not done well with other dogs.  We have been working on behavior issues with Toby and he is progressing nicely.

Samson (Sammie) came to us from the Detroit Animal Control and Care Center.  He was turned in by his owner to be euthanized.  She said is was 9 years old, blind, deaf and had a weak backend.  The DACC didn’t feel he was as bad as the owner claimed and were happy to have us take him into care.  Sammie is a very sweet, very mild mannered little boy.  He IS blind…vet says he was born with undeveloped retinas.  He doesn’t see even shadows.  But we believe he can hear.  He is starting to respond to voice and after several days, he started looking when his name was called.  His back end is very weak but it is growing stronger by the day.  We suspect he was crated for long periods of time and his muscles grew weak or never developed normally.  Sammie may be 9 years old but he also may be 6 years old.  There is no way to really know.  We will work with him to strengthen his muscles, hopefully encourage him to respond to voice and learn new ways to live in this world.  We expect Samson will soon find his Delilah (or Del) and be a great addition to a lucky family.
