My story

Although we're not sure on Walters past we know he has a great future. Walter found himself in a Texas shelter in pretty rough shape but he just needed some love to bring out this handsome fella. After arriving north and a trip to the vet we discovered Walter is diabetic. He currently receives insulin shots twice a day and gets special food to control his diabetes. He is estimated to be around 10 years old. Walter is fixed, utd on shots, and currently on flea, tick, and worms preventative. Walter would prefer to be an only animal or, at least, with a super chill fur sibling. It is not recommended that he goes to a home with small children as he is still learning to trust humans again. He likes to be pet and purrs loudly but sudden movements scare him. His adoption fee is $75.00. If you think Walter would be the perfect addition to your life, fill out an application at If you have questions not answered in this bio, email us at Walter would prefer to be with a super chill fur sibling.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

We require that the interested adopter come to meet the dog and then fill out an adoption application. We will review the application and then pass on to the dog's foster family (if applicable). We then contact the potential adopter's vet and we will also do a home visit. If all goes well, the adopter signs our adoption contract stating that, among other things, the dog will receive regular vet care and must be returned to us if things do not work out.

More about this rescue

We focus primarily on rescuing senior and special needs dogs in kill facilities. We are located on 30 acres of land in rural southern Michigan. We are a care-for-life facility, so any dog that does not or that we deem cannot be adopted will live with us for the rest of his/her life. Because we rescue the dogs that are not in high demand, it normally takes our dogs longer to find that perfect family. We believe that it takes a special family to adopt our special dogs.
