Hello I'm Topher and I'm a 6 year old Yorkie. I came from a puppy mill where I was used as a stud dog. A nice lady took me from the mill and had me neutered and my teeth cleaned. There wasn't much to clean though, as all of my teeth were bad so I only have 3 left. That is why my tongue hangs out. I've been passed to a few homes so far because of my house training but I'm almost 100% there in my foster home.

I'm listed on Petfinder right now so that the rescue can try to raise money for my knees. I have severe luxating patellas and I need surgery to correct at least one to have a decent long term prognosis. The vet told my foster mom it would be about $700 a knee to fix. If you could please donate to my cause that would be great! http://awos.petfinder.com/shelters/MI776.html. If you go to this page the donate button to click on is on the right side. Just make sure that you specify it is for me (Topher).The sooner my funds are raised, the sooner my surgery can be scheduled! Thank you so for reading my story and taking interest!

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.
