Dog Foster Homes Needed


We are currently getting more requests than we can handle and have not been able to help as many as we would like. On the fence about fostering? See what one of our dog fosters, Shannan has to say about her fostering experiences. 

Personally, I have been a dog foster since March 1, 2015 and in that time I have fostered 12 dogs. Fostering is something I have always wanted to do and with the support of my family was finally able to do this year. 

Last week I pulled a couple of dogs from Animal Control who literally only had minutes left. I have watched those dogs transform and blossom within the last week. Their gratefulness is obvious in the love that they give. We have the chance to give these dogs a new beginning, help them find their happy ending and I love being a part of that. 

Right now, we have dogs on intake whose owners have passed away, people who are losing their homes, and the local shelters have all been asking for help as they are very full. I am a full time employee, a wife, a mom to three busy girls. My life has always been full but it never felt complete until I started volunteering and making a difference with Kalamazoo Animal Rescue. Help us save a life and volunteer as a dog foster parent.

Make a difference in their life; make a difference in yours.

Mom and Puppy Naming Fundraiser

Recently, Van Buren County Animal Control contacted KAR when a female Black Lab mix gave birth to ten puppies in their shelter. One of our amazing foster volunteers stepped up and brought the canine family into her home. With so many mouths to feed and upcoming vet care, KAR needs your help! So we’re having a naming fundraiser with three special sponsorship levels. 
  • $50 ~ Name That Puppy Package (Up to 6 spots available)
  • $250 ~ Spay/Neuter Package (3 spots available)
  • $750 ~ Premium Package $750 (2 spots available)
Details for each sponsorship package are available here.  In appreciation for your generous donation, you also receive the opportunity to name mom or a puppy, and you receive some other special perks too!  There are seven male pups and three female pups so act FAST to give them a new name!

Purchase your sponsorship here! Be sure to leave your contact information at the check out.

Donations of any amount can add up to make a huge difference. Donate online, by mail or at one of our adoption events.

*** Update 10/12/2015***
Mom (Carley) and two girls (Abby and Baylee) have already been claimed to name. Only ONE girl pup remains to be named along with all seven boys.

*** Update 10/7/2015 ***
Some of the pups made some unique paw print art that will be available for donations. You can find our paw print art at Sticks&Stones in downtown Kalamazoo during Art Hop. 

Check back on our social media pages and websites for updates, and help spread the word so we can help mom and her puppies.
