Add a New Family Member

When the time is right to add a new pet to the family, adoption is a great way to find a fantastic pet. All potential adopters go through a rigorous vetting process including application, vet check, meet-n-greet and a home visit. 


With the Covid-19 Pandemic going on we are still doing adoptions, but safety comes first. Our rescue is based in the Metro Detroit area, and all prospective adopters must live within the state of Michigan.


Help Us, Help Them is 100% foster and volunteer based and does not have a physical shelter building. This means each animal is in an actual home with a foster family gaining the skills it needs to be a great family pet. Once you submit your application, it may take up to 2 weeks for someone to get back to you. We appreciate your patience and restraint from sending multiple emails.

Help Us, Help Them asks that potential adopters save any questions, comments or concerns for the initial phone interview. Phone calls, private messages on facebook and mulitple emails will not be responded to. We are all volunteers and promise to get back to you within a timely fashion.

The adoption application must be completely filled out, a vet check must be completed by our team, as well as a phone interview before we do a 'Meet N Greet.'
