IMPORTANT NOTES:

Rescue requirements are that ALL CURRENT and PAST pets in a foster or adopter home MUST be fixed (spayed or neutered) and up-to-date on rabies and core vaccines (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvo for dogs) in order to adopt or foster.

All applicants to adopt or foster animals in our rescue must be at least 21 years of age.

At this time, because we do home visits of all adopters, we cannot adopt an animal to anyone living outside the state of Michigan.
