Heavenly Paws of Michigan is a foster-home based rescue. There are many reasons as to why you should consider surrendering to us, a rescue, versus an animal shelter:
- Animals surrendered to our rescue are fostered in loving homes until they are adopted.
- Our rescue requires a $100 donation to cover the cost of a wellness evaluation, blood testing, alter surgery and required vaccinations. If you provide medical records showing that all medical care is up to date, the Surrender Fee will be waived!
- Our rescue has a strict adoption process, which includes reference checks and home visits.
- We are a no-kill rescue, which means that there will be no need to resort to euthanasia due to lack of space.
- Animals that are surrendered to shelters often spend days or even months in a small cage with limited access to outside activities.
- Animals that are surrendered to the shelter are also more prone to contracting viruses and other illnesses that can spread quickly within the shelter.
- Foster animals undergo temperament tests that help determine how they interact with children and other dogs and cats.
- Every animal that we rescue or accept as a surrender receives full veterinary care.
