Splinter is a happy guy, and he's also very lucky! He came to us with a badly broken leg that has been put in a splint. He will need this on for a while so the breaks to heal, and he'll need several changes of bandages until this heals. The splint is on to try and save his leg from amputation. He is currently getting around just fine! He is very sweet and active despite the bulky cast. This guy is such a love!! Please stop in and meet him today, or fill out an application online. Please also note that his x-rays are still currently under review with our Veterinarian and an orthopedic specialist to continue his care.
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 $50 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.
