Introducing Donnie! Donnie is a 75lb 1.5yo pointer/lab/pit mix. He was dumped on a farm near Ann Arbor. Donnie is a very friendly and sweet pup! He’s had lots of people care for him, but so far nobody to love him. He tried his hardest at the farm to make friends and find his “person.” He would bring sticks and rocks to workers to try to get them to play with him. In his foster home, he has discovered tennis balls which is now his favorite thing!
Donnie is higher energy. He would do best with a family who could play fetch with him in the yard or take him on daily walks/runs. Given his size and energy level he would do best with older kids. Donnie also should be the only dog in the home. He is curious about the cat in his foster home, but has not shown any signs of aggression. He also does well with chickens. He is crate trained and mostly potty trained.
Donnie is ready to join his forever family. He promises to greet you with a big smile and wagging tail! He can’t wait to find the family who will love him the way this sweet boy deserves.
Donnie is UTD on vaccines, neutered and microchipped. If interested in adopting Donnie, please fill out the online application at www.pettalesrescue.com to set up a meet and greet. His adoption fee is $250.00 View full description »

"Hi, I’m Alaska, a 2.5 year old, beautiful husky mix! I am a sweet, gentle lady looking for a home where I can get plenty of play time. I love to be outside in the yard, where I can soak in all the smells and check out the squirrels! Don’t worry, I know how to chill out when I need to. I need a fenced in yard since I love chasing squirrels so much, and I’m a blossoming escape artist.
Sometimes I sleep like an elegant Artic Fox...sometimes I don’t. I’m pretty quiet, and I usually only make noise when I really have something to say.
I like shoes, trash, paper, so you’ll need to keep me supplied with durable toys. If you leave home, I need to be in a crate, or I may get into mischief. I’m pretty good with being crated all night, but I’d be sad if I was left in a crate all day. Since I get a little excited sometimes when I’m playing, older kids may be best. I love chasing small animals, so no cats for me!"
Alaska weighs ~50 pounds, is UTD on vaccinations, spayed and microchipped!

This bold and beautiful Pittie girl is roughly 4 years old and searching for her new home!
Hazel will be your perfect snuggly companion, but she is dog-selective and cannot share her home with cats! She is dog-selective, which means she’ll play happily for hours with certain dogs, but can be bossy and agitated with others. For safety purposes, we recommend Hazel be placed in a home without other dogs UNLESS you have extensive dog experience and feel confident in behavioral cues.
Very very sweet and affectionate with every human she meets! Adults and children alike!
Cuddly! Hazel loves nothing more than a good couch-session with blankets galore!
A great listener!
Healthy and hearty!
Gentle and patient!
Hazie girl will need some sort of fencing in her new home, as chasing critters is a MAJOR delight for her!
Hazel is UTD on all vaccines, microchipped, and spayed!

Thor is a 1.5 year old, ~40 pounds, male terrier mix with a lot of energy and spunk! He really rocks the shaggy hair look and will be quick to win you over with cuddles and kisses. Thor is a total party with lots of energy. He needs adequate daily exercise or he’ll let you know that he’s bored!
He loves toys. He can entertain himself by shaking his head and then releasing the toy so it flies across the room! Thor uses a crate (still working on feeling 100% comfortable in one) and is fully house trained!
Thor is excited by squirrels, birds, bikes,...and other dogs. He will need to go to a home without other dogs OR a multi-dog home with a very experienced owner. Thor has not been cat or kid tested.
Thor is heartworm positive. He starts his treatment at the end of May. Because of this, Thor’s adopter will be in a “foster to adopt” arrangement, meaning they will foster Thor through his treatment and adoption will become final when treatment is complete. Pet Tales covers heartworm treatment costs, at no cost to the adopter.
Overall, Thor is a very lovable and goofy dog who is learning quickly. With an owner determined to keep up his training, Thor will make a wonderful companion!

Jolene is ready for adoption!
Jolene is a very sweet kitty who loves affection from people once she is comfortable in her surroundings. She doesn't like loud or high energy situations with people or other animals, so she would prefer a quiet home without a lot of activity. When the dogs in her foster home are loud or energetic she hides where she feels safe, but when they greet her calmly she is very friendly with them, so she would be ok in a home with easy-going dogs. So far, she would prefer a home without other cats. When she is alone with people she is a very cuddly lap kitty!
Jolene is a spayed female, approximately two years old, UTD on vaccinations and microchipped.

TATER is ready for adoption! She is a 10 year old tri-color beagle with a sweet disposition. She came to us from Genesee County Animal Control where her previous owner dropped her off so "she wouldn't freeze outside."
Although she has lived most her life outdoors, Tater has adjusted well to inside life. She is doing well with potty training. Her nose is always to the ground, so she will need to be on a leash or in a fenced yard. Tater does not bark alot, but when she does, you know it! She is a sweet little girl.
Tater is UTD on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and just had a dental. She gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home.

Mylo is a very loving, playful cat who came from Texas to find his forever family. He’s definitely on the smaller side, but that doesn’t slow him down! He will happily chase any toy you roll across the room or bat at the teaser toys for hours on end. Mylo doesn’t spend much time on the cat tower, but loves the hideouts, couch, or to snuggle into the pillows on the bed.
Mylo gets along well with female cats but should be the only male kitty in the household - and would be best in a home with a confident female kitty friend. He does not like being picked up or having his belly rubbed, but will tolerate most other forms of contact. He will snuggle with you on the couch if you’re willing to rub his head! He’s curious about big dogs, but did not enjoy the small dogs he’s interacted with in his foster home. Would prefer a moderately active home with older kids who can respect boundaries.
Mylo is a 2-3 yr old handome brown tabby with vivid black stripes and swirls. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
To meet Mylo, please go to www.pettalesrescue.com and fill out an application. His adoption fee is $50. View full description »
Meet Salem and Hops!
Salem is a sweet, affectionate, loving cat. He prefers to lounge during the day and soak up as much sun as he can from the comfiest spot on the couch. While he can be leery of people at first, he’s definitely not afraid or anti-social once he’s had time to adjust to a new environment. Salem is always the first one to greet foster mom when she comes down the stairs and doesn’t shy away from adults and older kids. Salem will play with toys and other cats but mostly plays with Hops. He is curious with the big dogs in his foster home and routinely tries to sneak upstairs to find them! Salem uses the litterbox and will use the scratching posts provided.
Color: Black with three white toes on his back feet, white fur like a tux on his chest and a slight bit of white fur on his belly. Green eyes.
Hops is also a sweet and loving boy, but requires a quieter home AND his buddy Salem. Once he learns to trust you, he will soak up all the affection and head scratches he can get! Hops loves to play with his brother Salem. When giving him affection, he will gently nip at your hand or try to grab your hand with his paws. He does not care for the dogs in his foster home.
Color: Black with a small amount of white on his chest. Has white patches of fur on his belly that looks like a bikini. Green eyes.
Both boys have been neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped.
Their Foster Mom thinks these two are litter mates. While Salem may be okay on his own, Hops definitely needs Salem and must be adopted with him!
To meet Salem and Hops, please go to www.pettalesrescue.com and fill out an application. Their adoption fee is $100 total for both of them. View full description »
Hi, I am Oakley and I would love to be the (only) man in your life!
I am a small and sweet middle aged man (between 5-6 years old) looking for a quiet lady who enjoys spending time at home. I would like to spend my days relaxing on the couch with you or maybe by your side as you work from home.
As a submissive guy, I need to share my new lady friend with another dog as it gives me confidence around humans. Sniffing, running, and digging around in a fenced in backyard with my furry friends is always a great time for me. Other than that, I prefer to avoid traveling, popular places and strangers.
• another resident dog required
•No kids under 14
•Fenced in yard
Oakley is up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Oakley is house trained and crate trained also.

MEET THE CHAMP!
Champ absolutely MUST go to a home that already has dogs. Multiple dogs preferred! He needs the comfort and confidence of having other dogs around, no exceptions. He will be an amazing pack member!
This precious pittie boy has the cutest black and white coat that is velvety soft—just perfect for petting! He is a great medium size at barely 50lbs and roughly 2 years old.
This poor boy was found, with many other dogs, in an abandoned home in the Flint area. Thankfully, a group of rescuers saved him and his companions from this nightmare and went straight to work vetting and caring for them. Champ was moved into our rescue in order to get some more one-on-one socialization and evaluation that he wasn't able to receive in a shelter environment....and we're so glad he came!
Things Champ is great at:
Going potty outside.
Playing with toys and keeping himself occupied.
Making friends with other dogs.
Cuddling and wanting affection from people he loves!
Taking treats so sweet and gentle!
Having fun and being playful when you want him to be, but more than willing to be a couch potato when playtime is done!
Things Champ needs to work on:
Champ LOVES other dogs, but would prefer to be fed separately and not have his food messed with by others. Same goes for a bone he’s invested in!
Anxiousness in new situations. Champ likes the familiarity and comfort of home, and gets quite shy of new places and people.
Meeting new people: Champ has the capacity to love everybody, but he is slow to warm up and trust new people, especially men. He HAS NOT displayed any sort of aggression, just shyness/avoidance and some barking. Once Champ knows you and trusts you, he will be attached at the hip and will reward your patience with unconditional companionship!
Due to Champ's shyness with new people, his adoption process may be a bit more drawn-out than usual. He should be given the opportunity to meet with his potential family several times before an adoption can occur. If you're interested in adopting this sweet boy, please be prepared to give him the patience and understanding he deserves.
