Hi, my name is Oreo. I am a one year old terrier/border collie mix. I am currently in a foster home with two older furry brothers who are teaching me that living in a loving home is wonderful and not scary. I am crate trained, walk well on a leash and know the sit command. I am currently working on stay and off. I aim to please my humans, making it easier to continue my training.

You should also know that a few months ago I had an eye infection that led to the loss of one of my eyes. Don’t worry, I am all healed now, and don’t let this stop me from running and chasing balls in my fenced yard.

As I am still learning that hands and feet are not play toys, I would prefer a home without young children. Also, as I have a herding urge, so I need a home without cats. I have mainly been raised in a shelter and I am a little scared at first when dogs that I don’t know approach me. But after that, we are best friends.

If you have another dog, Oreo would need to meet them before adoption.

****My adoption fee is $195.****

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.

About Animal Rescue Project

About Our Rescue Group...

Animal Rescue Project is led and run by volunteers -- over 150 of us.

Most of the dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies we rescue come from pounds. We provide quality care for our rescue animals until they're adopted, no matter how long that takes. We do initial checkups, spay or neuter, bring our rescue animals up to date on shots, and provide other necessary medical treatment. We've treated animals for heartworm, parvo, broken legs, and more. Our adoption fees only sometimes cover the cost of care until the animals are treated. Donations are welcome!

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our shelter is located at 219 Peekstock Dr in Kalamazoo Michigan.
Our open hours are:
Monday through Friday 2p.m. to 7p.m.
Saturdays 11a.m. to 4p.m.

We can also make appointments if needed on Sundays.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process begins with meeting the animal or filling out an adoption application form, whichever step you want to start with. We use the form and our conversation with you to see if you and the dog or cat you're considering look like a good match. We'll talk to you about what you're looking for in a pet and tell you what we know about the animal you're interested in.

If it looks like a good match and you want to adopt, we ask you to complete an adoption contract. In this contract, you agree to provide all the necessary care for the animal. Adoption fees cover medical checks, spaying or neutering (we provide a voucher for this if the animal is too young to be spayed or neutered), vaccinations to date, worming, and other medical treatment done. We may need to check with your landlord to see if pets are allowed, but you can usually take home your new pet the same day.
