Review for Good Karma Puppy Rescue, White Lake, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a foster for Good Karma for almost 7 years. My husband and I specialize in fostering pregnant dogs rescued from shelters. It is a 10+ week commitment and we have loved every minute of it. We have a separate room just for the moms and puppies with comfy beds, food and toys to make their experience loving and comfortable. Char always gives us everything we need to keep the dogs safe and healthy, and vets are always at the ready 24/7. These dogs and puppies that are rescued often have a rough start to life, and the people in the rescue have been nothing short of amazing. Everybody's goal is simple; to loves these animals, give them the best care and find them the happiest of forever homes.

I am often asked what happens to the moms we foster, and I'm proud to say that they are usually adopted first! These moms interact with our dogs to build up their trust, gets lots of love and attention and only separate them from their litter when THEY are ready (not on a schedule or timeline). I'm proud that by the time these moms are ready to be adopted, they are happy and healthy and transition to their forever homes with ease. I'm just as proud of the puppies, because we pay just as much attention to them, to ensure they grow into well-adjusted, happy and healthy puppies.

There is a reason it is called a "rescue" environment. Dogs and puppies are rescued from tough situations (whether shelters or local environments) living in rough conditions. So, that is why Char gives 100% support and resources to her fosters to ensure the well-being of the animals in our care. I love that I have been able to help as many animals as I have been able to while volunteering with this organization, and plan to continue to do it as long as possible!
