If you're looking to adopt a dog, puppy, cat, or kitten, come to this Michigan Humane Society Adoption Event at PetSmart in Ann Arbor.
Most of the dogs are located around the Plymouth, Ann Arbor, Dexter areas in MI. Some are in the Toledo and Findlay areas in OH. To meet one of our dogs, you must first fill out our mini application and be pre-approved to adopt from us. Then we will schedule a home visit and meeting of the dog(s) with you. We do not generally show our dogs at the pet stores due to the stress level on the dogs and we do not feel that the dogs show best in that environment. We also are not looking for the impulse adopter, but prefer to take a little more time and make sure we have the right match of personalities for both our dogs and the families.

The phrase, “It takes a village ” is profound, and when it comes to saving the lives of animals, it rings especially true.For one Ann Arbor-based dog rescue, making better lives for animals is a labor of love. Finding Incredible Dog Owners, or FIDO — a no-kill organization — was established in 2009 by an experienced group of people who had worked at a larger rescue but saw the need to branch out on their own in the Ann Arbor area. Their main mission at that time was to save the lives of homeless canines by honing in on the idea that each dog’s personality and specific needs should be the focus when adopting a pet (as opposed to the animal's breed or physical traits). That idea has served the success of FIDO well. Since January of 2010, they have successfully adopted out 393 dogs.The rescue is run solely by volunteers that are employed elsewhere full time. FIDO is not a shelter, and they do not have a facility. Each dog that comes through the organization's intake process lives with foster volunteers, of which there are about 10-15 at any given time. Most of these volunteers have one dog; a few have two.Groups like LDDR have websites that display photos of all their animals for adoption. They also need volunteers and monetary donations to keep their work progressing. I’m pleased to introduce Last Day Dog Rescue to the Ann Arbor Animal Hospital community and recommend visiting their website for more information about this group. I would also recommend checking out their for adoptable animals and success stories.
