Allegan puppy mill survivor

Zoey is one of the 354 dogs rescued from the puppy mill in Allegan county. Considering the conditions, Zoey has not let that stop her from being a happy playful puppy. She loves to play and loves to run outside and will soon make an amazing companion to some wonderful owner.

Kalamazoo Animal Rescue was able to take in 11 dogs so far from the shelter. This picture is a prime example of the resilience of a dog. What a little super star Zoey is.

A Happy Ever After Tail

Cabby came into the rescue the summer of 2011 when she was found as a stray by a Good Samaritan. The person who found her contacted a friend who knew a volunteer with KAR. Our foster mom thought she was an adorable little dog that would be adopted quickly. And, this is just what happened.

The fortunate pup was adopted by a loving family in September. They keep in contact with Cabby's foster mom and this is how she is doing in her forever home:

"Cabby is doing GREAT! I just can't get over what a little love she is. So affectionate, so eager to please, so sweet. We left her for about 40 minutes while we went out, and although she whimpered a little at first, she seemed to settle in okay. When when we returned, she was calm and content, even when we let her out.

Thanks again -- I really feel like it was fate for Cabby to be with us."
