Paws for Life Rescue is a nonprofit, all-breed dog and cat rescue operating in southeast Michigan. Run by dedicated, hardworking volunteers, Paws for Life is a shelter partner. We rescue dogs and cats from overflowing shelters in Michigan, saving two lives - the one we take and the one that needs the empty kennel space we left behind. 

Speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves​​​.


Bonjour, my name is Toupee Cabriolet, and I am an adorable 6-month-old, female, cow kitten. My foster mom says that the big black splotch on my head looks I'm wearing a toupee, and cabriolet because ... well, why not? I am very playful and loving. I will roll around and around trying to get you to pay attention to me. I love to give you head butts and chatter at you when I want attention.


I would love a snuggle buddy! I really really, really love other cats. I even like other cats who don't appreciate my affectionate advances. But I am sure that I will win them over with my unending charm. I'm happy to lounge in a cozy sunny spot, be petted by my people and hang out with my feline friends. I'm fairly mellow and laid back. I'm great at using my litterbox and I'm very food motivated. Apply for me today. I just know we'll have an instant connection. 


Apply today! Adoption fee: $75. Adopt a pair: $115. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance.


Hello, my name is Penny and I am a soft soul who loves her people so much. I was born July 30, 2020. I am a young, beautiful girl who is full of life, yet over the puppy stages. I am so well behaved, 100% housetrained, not destructive, loving, cuddly and a wonderful family member. Let me tell you about me. When you come home from a long day, I will greet you with smiles, tail wags and happy little hops, my dance moves. I love to play in the fenced yard, doing zoomies and making everyone smile and laugh. I love to play with toys. I like to carry them around with me and take them to my crate with me. When it's nap time, I will find my bed or comfy spot and curl up. I am an active dreamer, chirping, yipping and running in place. I love sniffy walks early in the morning before it's busy outside. I am a cuddle-bug. I like spending time with my people and getting pets and scritches. I'm laid back and mellow most of the time. I am content to lounge about with you, watching a movie or reading a book on a rainy day. I am happy to play with you outside or roll in the grass soaking up the sun. If you need more sunshine in your life, apply today and prepare to fall in love.     


Adoption fee: $80. Fee includes testing, deworming, vaccinations, spay/neuter, microchip and 30 days of free pet insurance. If you want to adopt Archie, just fill out an application!
