Michigan Pet Adoption:Paws for Life Rescue’s Annual Halloween Fur Bowl To Take Place In Madison Heights

Every fall, Paws for Life hosts one of its largest fundraisers of the year, the annual Halloween Fur Bowl. Costume-clad kids and adults pay $25 each to bowl three games, which includes shoe rental and pizza and pop for lunch. For 2019, the annual Fur Bowl moves to Astro Lanes in Madison Heights on Sunday, October 27, starting at noon. Astro Lanes is located at 32388 John R Rd. in Madison Heights.

“We have always received strong support from the Madison Heights community,” said Courtney Protz-Sanders, executive director of the non-profit animal rescue Paws for Life. “Several years ago, we donated canine oxygen masks to the Madison Heights fire department and our partnership with the city has only grown from there.”

Paws for Life’s Fur Bowl goes beyond bowling, which means there’s something for everyone, even non-bowlers. Everyone is welcome to come out and play the raffles, bid on the silent auction items, enter the Halloween costume contest for kids and adults (prizes will be awarded), check out the Buy It Now board and partake in the plethora of goodies in the bake sale.

“We are sweetening the deal this Halloween,” said Protz-Sanders. “Each ticket purchased in advance of the event will come with a free raffle ticket.” Those advance ticket purchases can be made at

All Fur Bowl proceeds benefit the homeless pets of Paws for Life. Since Paws for Life has no paid staff and receives no government support, every penny donated and raised goes directly to the animals in its care.

About Paws for Life Rescue

PFL is an Adoption Guarantee organization that rescues homeless, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from overflowing shelters.

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.

    I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

    Have a purrfect day, Cody. My best to your brother and your wonderful mom. ♥

  3. Too bad I am working that day...but it sounds like fun for a good cause.

  4. A few other rescues in the area are having events now too; since I cannot attend, I don't post about them, but perhaps I should!

    1. I post for those who send me the information asking if I would post, which is what I did. Most of what I post is either too far away for me to go or I am busy and can't go. I post it to benefit the animals :)

  5. That sounds like a fun time and the furries will appreciate the help!

  6. I haven't been bowling in forever. That would be fun to do, and for such a great cause. If I lived there, I'd be going! :)

  7. That is such a great idea for an event. We hope it is a huge success!

  8. So many kitties! So little time! This event sounds like a lot of fun (or as much fun as one can have when kitty is left at home).

  9. A great event coming right up this weekend! Hope everyone has a good time and it's a big success for all the volunteers and the kitties and the puppy dogs~ Tom x

  10. This sounds like a wonderful event benefiting animals. I like their philosophy of "do no harm" and "time and money are no reason to put an animal down." Hooray for foster care homes, they are the lifeblood of great organizations such as these. xx
