Crusader is an adorable Boxer mix. He weighs 21 pounds and has lovely black and tan coloring with white coloring in his neck and chest. He has cute floppy ears and an absolutely adorable face!
Sadly, Crusader was dropped off at a local pound facility but he is now in the safe hands of the ARP. We aren't sure why someone wouldn't want this sweet boy in their home!! He's socializing with people and other animals, and he does well with all! He's a silly boy who will keep you entertained with his antics! If Crusader sounds like a good match for you, please consider giving this sweetie a forever home this holiday season!
****His adoption fee is $295.****
The Animal Rescue Project (www.animalrescueproject.org) 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.
Rescue Group Info...
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!
Our shelter is located at 219 Peekstock, Kalamazoo, MI. You can meet the animals at our shelter during our open hours: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
We have adoption events on Saturdays:
- Dog adoption events are at 5220 S. Westnedge, Portage, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
- Cat adoption events are at PetSmart, 5200 West Main, Kalamazoo, MI, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
- Additional adoption events are listed on our website.
We can also arrange for you to meet pets by appointment.
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.
We're a non-profit, no-kill dog and cat rescue group in Kalamazoo / Portage, southwest Michigan.
