Sam's Info...

Sam's Story...
Sam is a 6 year old purebred golden retriever with his papers. Sam loves to be around people - he's always friendly with neighbors, visitors, and loves kids. If you're willing to play with him game on! Sam gets along well with other dogs and rarely takes the dominate role when playing with them. Sam seems to have a great sense of appropriate behavior around small children, although sometimes he has to be reminded not to lick them so often. Sam sleeps on the floor by the bed at night (he has his own baby-dog toy) as he doesn't like to be far from his people at any time. Sam loves to be bathed and groomed. He will lay in laps to get brushed and get his ears cleaned. He thinks getting his teeth brushed is a treat! Sam is a very loving sweet dog. He needs someone who can spend time playing with him and taking him for walks. He loves to going for car rides and to the dog park. If Sam sounds like a good match for you, please ask about him today!

****His adoption fee is $295.****

The Animal Rescue Project ( is committed to the best possible veterinary care for the pets it rescues—and it is looking for adopters who will be similarly committed.

All dogs and puppies are given a general check-up when they enter our program. They receive medication to remove any intestinal parasites (worms), fleas, and ticks they may have. Dogs greater than six months of age are checked for heartworm. If heartworm positive, the Animal Rescue Project treats the disease. Dogs and pups receive all age-appropriate vaccinations for distemper, and dogs greater than four months of age are also vaccinated for rabies, in compliance with State of Michigan laws.

Most dogs and older puppies are spayed or neutered before adoption. In the case of puppies not old enough to be safely sterilized, a $25 deposit is required at the time of adoption and is refunded to the adopter with proof of sterilization.

The Animal Rescue Project requires every adopter to establish an active relationship with a veterinarian no later than 10 days after adoption. Adopters will receive a plan for routine veterinary care at the time of adoption and are expected to work with their vet to complete the plan.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sam, a Kalamazoo Golden Retriever dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever for sale in Kalamazoo, or seeking a Golden Retriever dog from a breeder in Kalamazoo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Kalamazoo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Kalamazoo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever breeders who help with Golden Retriever rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kalamazoo paves the way for another one to be saved.
