Nellie's Story...
Hi, I'm Nellie. I am a 5 month old Collie/Boxer mix. I came to the ARP with my mother Nolan and brother Niles. We have only known one person in our lives so the world is still new to us. The ARP is making this transition very easy for us though. I am very attached to the family I came in with and the ARP thinks a home with another dog might make life go better for me. I am still puppy and will need work on all of the things puppies need to learn such as housebreaking and good doggy manners. I am still shy at first but I will come to greet you with kisses. With time and patience I will be the perfect dog. If I could be the girl for you, please fill out an application today (I am being spayed February 23rd and will be ready to go home after that).

****My 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

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