Lance's Info...

Lance's Story...
Lance is a bouncy and playful 3 year old man. He was taken to the pound as a stray, and the ARP rescued him. We were told that he had a cancerous tumor on his scrotal, but we had another Vet examine him. This Vet said he has a scrotal hernia, which he has had fixed, and now he's doing great!! He has dry eyes and will need eye drops.

Lance is now living in a foster home where he is getting the TLC he so deserves. He loves exploring outside and going for short walks, as his little legs get tired quickly. He loves to cuddle and be close when relaxing on the couch. He is doing well with house training at his foster home. He is looking for the perfect person to enjoy his company. If this sweet boy 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

Lance, a Kalamazoo Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Shih Tzu for sale in Kalamazoo, or seeking a Shih Tzu 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 Shih Tzu breeders who help with Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kalamazoo paves the way for another one to be saved.
