ABOUT

OUR RESCUE

A ReJoyceful Animal Rescue is a no-kill, foster-based cat and dog rescue. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) charity located in the Metro-Detroit area. All of the animals that come into in our care have been rescued from one place or another. We pull from high-kill animal shelters, we take in the sick, unwanted, aggressive, abandoned, abused and neglected animals. We place them in a foster home with someone who will understand them, rehabilitate them and show them what it is like to be loved again. We feel that all animals deserve better and we strive to give them a life full of love and happiness.

Our rescue does not cage animals that come into our care. Each animal that comes into our organization is a part of someone’s family until they find their forever homes. This helps us to determine their personalities and work with them to give them the one on one attention that they deserve. We also run a community outreach project, helping 24/7 chained dogs, stray/feral cats and more. We provide medical care (including TNR), food, treats, toys, bones, proper tie outs, collars, shelter, straw and more!

 

Shaggy

Hi, Im Shaggy! I am a spunky Jack Russell terrier, approximately 6-8 years old, who weighs a whopping 18.5 pounds. I was recently rescued from a hoarding situation and am now looking for my new furever home.

I tend to be shy around new people and situations, but open up pretty quickly once given enough time. My foster parents have been teaching me some general obedience and are helping me boost my confidence. They say Im improving every day. I still get nervous being alone and would love a companion to keep me company.

Im not opposed to having other dogs around, but I am picky about my friends. So I will need a proper introduction to any other dogs first. Cats, Im a little too curious with, so it would be best not to have any. Children may be okay, but I havent been around them to know for sure.

Dont let my age fool you. I enjoy long walks on the beach, roaming the yard, and of course being lazy in the house.

Stewart

Introducing: Stewart the Stray, first of his name.

Stewart spent the last winter living in the woods behind his foster’s house. After visiting the back porch for a random meal here and there, he decided he was done with that outlaw life and chose domestication. He has enjoyed learning the ways of the house cat ever since. He’s a DSH neutered tabby with white boots and beard. Stewart loves, loves, loves being with his person. He’s a little shy about being picked up, the front door being opened, and loud bangy noises. Otherwise, he’s grown fond of his new status. He has used the litter pan 100% of the time since coming to live indoors. He has all his claws, but only scratches his scratch box. He doesn’t fuss about getting his nails trimmed weekly. His foster mom uses regular people clippers. He enjoys being brushed and if you let him sit on your lap, he’ll let you pet him ALL. DAY. LONG. He’s learning to stay off tables and counters. He loves to cat nap on the window bed or in your bed, and if you join him for a nap, he’s even happier. He’s very playful and enjoys showing off his skills at hunting and attacking his toys. But if you are busy, he is good at playing by himself. If you are looking for a forever kitten, this guy is the one for you. Due to his previous gangster lifestyle, Stewart will need to live with kitties that are fully vaccinated. We aren’t sure how he does with dogs. Please fill out an application if you are ready for the sweetest cat ever!

Karma

Hi, I’m Cecelia (AKA Karma)!

I am a 2 year old little lady who would LOVE to meet you, because I love every person I meet! In fact, I love my people so much that I need to be the only dog in the home so I don’t have to share any of the attention. My hobbies include snuggling on the couch with my foster mom, playing fetch, car rides, and learning tricks (I know sit, down, stay, come, and shake-both paws!). I love walks but am learning my leash manners. I am housebroken, crate trained, spayed, and UTD on vaccines. I have not met many children, but I was told my “happy tail” and energy level make me a better fit for a home without small kiddos. I’ve never met a cat, as my foster mom does not have one. Life hasn’t always been kind to me but you’d never know it now. I’ve gone from 26 to 48 pounds in 2 months, and now that I’m healthy and safe I am learning to love every minute.

ROADIE

Roadie was found on the side of the road after being dropped by a hawk. He was left for dead until a good samaritan found him. He was brought into our rescue and received full medical care. He now, has made a 85% recovery and is only expected to further improve. Read more about Roadie's story here

CREED

Creed was found on the streets of Detroit severely emaciated with a mangled foot. Our volunteers believed he was hit by a car and left to die. Creed was rushed to the hospital where he was fighting for his life. At one point while trying to stabilize him he flat lined and died for 15 minutes. The animal universe was on his side as doctors and techs performed CPR on him for 15 straight minutes and he came back to life. He survived dying, heartworm treatment, leg amputation, neutering and additional rehabilitation and therapy. Creed has since recovered with his foster, now permanent, mom.

AMARI

Amari was found on the side of the road by a good samaritan. She was involved in a dog fight and left on the side of the road to die. ARAR stepped up and helped save her life. Doctors predicted she would have a 5% chance at living; however, this strong girl defied all odds and made a full recovery. She is now happy and healthy in a furever home.

STAFFORD

Stafford was shot between the eyes with a 45 caliber handgun by some awful person on the streets on Detroit to no fault of his own. Stafford is now blind in one eye and the bullet broke inside of Stafford's jaw. Stafford was also heartworm positive. He has since made a full recover and is in a furever home with his young best friend.

"I can’t say enough about ARAR! I rescued my Bianca Mae three years ago. She got out of the house earlier this year and i was a mess. They searched with me from sun up until sun down for over two days and called upon all their available resources until she was found safe and back with us. They aren’t just a rescue that gives you a dog and walks away. They kind of become family. Thank you will never be enough for all they’ve done for my family. If you’re looking for a reputable rescue who thoroughly loves the animals in their care and will do all they can to help those in need, look no more and check out ARAR."
