Opal's Info...

I am good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Opal's Story...
Opal is a lab/hound mix, about 14 weeks old. She weighs 17# right now and we estimate she will be a medium to medium/large dog when fully grown. She has a moderate energy level. She likes to play, but is happy to cuddle and relax inside. Opal gets along great with other dogs, big and small, and has a nice play behavior. She is fine with cats and kids. This little girl has a wonderful temperament and is responding well to the basic training she is working on. Opal would make a great family pet, especially if there was a fenced yard to romp and play in.

You can meet Opal at Bark's 5th Avenue where she goes to work with her foster mom. She is there Mon & Thurs 10am - 3:30pm and Tuesday & Wednesday 10am - 7pm. For information or directions you can go to www.barks.biz.

****Her adoption fee is $325.****

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Opal, a Kalamazoo Labrador Retriever/Hound (Unknown Type) puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Labrador Retriever/Hound (Unknown Type) for sale in Kalamazoo, or seeking a Labrador Retriever/Hound (Unknown Type) puppy from a breeder in Kalamazoo.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Kalamazoo already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Kalamazoo breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Labrador Retriever/Hound (Unknown Type) breeders who help with Labrador Retriever/Hound (Unknown Type) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Kalamazoo paves the way for another one to be saved.
