Volunteer to save lives and attend an upcoming orientation/training session! Care for adoptable cats and kittens who live at our partner Petco store in Rochester Hills. Each day a Paws for Life volunteer goes to the store to refresh the water and food, play with and love the cats awaiting forever homes, spot clean the cages and scoop litter boxes.

We use an online calendar to sign-up for shifts and training and shadowing of existing volunteers will be provided. Time commitment varies depending on how many cats and kittens are currently housed at the store, however it is typically about one hour per shift and we’re looking for commitment of one shift per week at this time. Kids and teens under 18 are welcome with an adult/guardian volunteer present. All volunteers must follow store and CDC protocols.

UPCOMING ORIENTATIONS/TRAINING SESSIONS:

  • Monday, October 18th - 5:30-6pm
  • Friday, October 22nd - 5:30-6pm

Mission Statement

Paws for Life's mission is to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves; to rescue and rehome abandoned pets, matching animals and families to find the right fit for everyone and promising to exhaust all efforts to place adoptable pets in lifelong, loving homes; to promote humane education, spay/neuter initiatives and respect for all living things; to prevent and report cruelty to animals; to participate in disaster animal response; to improve the lives of animals and end the suffering created by puppy mills, animal fighters and backyard breeders; and to be a driving force, leader and champion for animal welfare in Michigan.

Description

Paws for Life Rescue and Adoption (PFL) is a 501(c)3, tax-exempt, not-for-profit animal welfare organization run by a group of hard-working, dedicated volunteers. PFL is an Adoption Guarantee organization that rescues homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from overflowing shelters. PFL does not believe that time or money are acceptable reasons to end a life. PFL uses a network of loving foster care homes where animals stay until their forever homes are found. PFL's goal is to find the best homes possible for the homeless pets in our care. PFL operates under the philosophy of do no harm.

The organization focuses on humane legislation and education initiatives to permanently improve the lives, safety and future of companion animals in Michigan and surrounding areas. PFL has no paid staff and receives no government support. Every penny donated goes directly to the animals in our care, paying vet bills and purchasing needed supplies.

In addition to rescue, PFL devotes resources to numerous local and national humane campaigns, such as End Dogfighting, Community Cat TNR and Eliminating Puppy Mills, as well as participation in community and national Disaster Animal Response Teams.
