8-4-17 Adoption Pending
The 'boys' will be ready for their homes starting 7-21-17 after their vetting on Thursday. These are very good pups, already crate trained and now healthy. ACD experience is required to apply for our pups.
4-24-17 We took in 8 ACD's from an unfortunate situation. We have 3 male pups, who were only like 3 weeks old when they came in, and sadly they were taken away from their Momma. The pups were sickly, not able to move and they were not taken to the vet. They lost one pup before they came here, and possibly one was lost at the pig farmer's corn crib where they were housed. They were taken from there to another location without the parents. We now have the Mom and Dad, a possible brother / sister, another breeding female (who has been adopted) and these pups. They were ALL covered in dried on pig poop. We are NOT looking for them to be adopted because someone feels bad for them. Remember we have lots of older and wiser ACD's here.
Please Note: First, we ask that you fill out the adoption application if you are interested in one of our dogs. We can only answer questions about the adoption process, before the application.
Then during the phone interview (step two of the application process) we can answer more questions based on what your application has on it. If you email questions without doing an application, we will not be able to give you a good answer. There are too many variables which we look at when matching up dogs. Thank you for helping us to help you, and ultimately help the dogs looking for the right home.
Our adoption fee ($300) covers the age appropriate spay / neutering, heart worm testing, rabies, distemper combo, microchipping and any other necessary medical that a dog may need. Please consider a rescue that comes to you with all of the routine medical (and then some) already done.

Contact Monica at (989) 330-5147, Director of AuCaDo Rescue, for questions about adoption process. If you are looking for a certain rescue, let me know, as we always have rescues waiting to come here.
PLEASE NOTE: AuCaDo Rescue is not a public shelter. This dog is being fostered in a private home / kennel until adoption. Prospective adopters who have submitted an accepted application and completed a telephone interview are welcome to schedule an appointment to travel to meet the dog. If approved for adoption, a deposit will hold the dog until a meeting or transport is arranged. AuCaDo Rescue does welcome out of state adoptions. We require an approved application, phone interview, photos and willingness to travel to meet the dog. AuCaDo Rescue is located in Remus, Michigan.

NOTE: Some shelters have physical locations you can visit; some of these shelters may only have pets for a limited time, so please do not wait for a reply—just go visit the shelter! Other organizations are rescue groups run by busy volunteers who may take a while to reply.
