If you have a fondness for happy, playful and super cute pups then Rico is the one for you. He’s a 1 year and 2 month old Jack Russell mix practically bursting his seams with glee, energy and adorable looks. He’s extremely happy and excited to spend time with you and makes who ever is visiting him feel like they are the most important person in the world. Rico also loves to play and is always eager to get outside and have some fun. He especially likes fetch and can play all day bringing the ball back over and over again so the fun never has to end. He still needs some work on nailing basic commands but is very smart and treat motivated so training should be a cinch.  He can make a good playmate with other dogs but will stand up for himself if other dogs act aggressively towards him. Rico should do great with kids too making him the perfect addition for high energy family fun. His smaller size and puppy looks combined with his goofy grin make him downright adorable too. Call today to meet Rico; he’s neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped. Call Friends of Michigan Animals Rescue at 734 461-9458 or visit our website for more information.

About Friends of Michigan Animal Rescue

About Our Shelter...

FMAR is a non-profit 501(c)3 rescue for dogs and cats that started in April 2003 with the help and support of hundreds of wonderful people. Our mission is to protect animals and residents by promoting a healthy and safe enviornment for all. FMAR felt we needed to start in our own community helping our Animal Control facility find homes for the strays they pick up or are brought to them. On a rare occassion when we have extra space we do our best to help out neighboring communities too. We started in the family room of our home, adding kennels under and on the pool table and moving to the dining and livingroom. We grew by leaps and bounds, so we sold our home, bought a 61/2 acre farm and renovated the smaller of the 2 barns with 9 dog kennels and 5 unique cat kennels. Our first renovation allowed us to house a larger number of cats and dogs, but the need grew faster than our space would allow. We are amazed and saddened every day by the abundance of homeless pets and hoped to raise enough money to renovate our larger barn, but the need became so great we knew we had to find something smaller that we could better afford to renovate. We added on again but the space was still not enough. We found someone to donate another barn and had this barn moved to our property and renovated it as our new "Cat Haven".
Please visit our website at for more details on our growth and progress. We promise the best is yet to come!!

Our Adoption Process...

FMAR is an no-kill 501 C 3 tax-exempt all breed rescue, and like you, we are concerned about the welfare of the animals and the families that adopt them. We will require paperwork to be filled out and a consultation before an animal is adopted. Interaction with any other animals in your care is also required. We reserve the right to deny any adoption that we feel is not safe or comfortable for either the animal or potential adopter.
Our adoption costs vary, and include first set of vaccinations and spay/neuter. Cats and kittens start at $75 and dogs and puppies range from $100 - $175 depending on age, size and breed. We also offer micro chips at a very reasonable rate. For more information please send us an email at:
