Event details:

Paws for Life is a volunteer-run, 501c3 non-profit animal welfare organization. PFL rescues homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens throughout southeast Michigan. The Rescue believes in spay/neuter, education and legislative initiatives to end the suffering of companion animals. PFL has no paid staff and receives no government support. Every penny donated goes directly to the animals in our care.

PFL’s mission is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. The Rescue believes in matching animals and families to find the right fit for everyone. PFL promises to exhaust all efforts to place adoptable pets in lifelong, loving homes. The Rescue’s goal is to find the best home possible for the homeless pets in our care.
