Review for Good Karma Puppy Rescue, White Lake, MI, USA
My husband and I adopted our current dog 8 years ago from Good Karma and were first time fosters in May. We picked up a very scared mom and 11, 2 wk old pups (7 were hers, 4 from a mom-less litter) from the transport van. We were provided food, puppy pads, paper towel and a bag of medications for possible health concerns. As a new foster of puppies i was in constant contact with Char and esp. when health concerns came up with the mom (worms, coccidia and mange). Char was extremely proficient in knowing what the health issues were and how to support the mom without harming the pups (who were too young to receive medications). Her knowledge was impressive and she helped me with any concern i had, responding within minutes. Char provided us with a cooked chicken to coax the mom to come to us and trust, that was so helpful. The mom would not allow a leash anywhere near her, Char suggested a harness, which worked wonders and was less stressful for all of us. We carefully monitored the pups and provided meds for worms when they were old enough. Char made sure they had 2 sets of vaccines before they were adopted. The mom was moved to another foster home a week before the pups were to go up for adoption, We were notified when the mom was adopted, I was so happy! Due to Covid the adoption process was done on line, A location was chosen and potential adopters were scheduled a meeting time. I was delighted that we could meet each family, tell them about the pup and their personality. I could feel how each potential adopting family was carefully chosen and it felt like each one went to the perfect home. We would have fostered again, but received our Leader Dog approval days after the pups were adopted. I love this rescue and their dedication to serving the animals.
