Review for Good Karma Puppy Rescue, White Lake, MI, USA
Our family has adopted two dogs and fostered several litters through Good Karma. We who adopt usually know that the dogs have come from less dog-friendly areas and that they’ve already gotten their basic shots, but here are a few things that we who have fostered through Good Karma find out.
–-Dogs and puppies are rescued from many types of circumstances. Very few are surrendered from good homes; most have been abused, neglected, or both. Kind attention soothes the emotional scars, but veterinary expertise is necessary for the physical ones. Even as the animals await their transportation to our area, Good Karma provides for their urgent medical care where they are.
–-Each transport requires attaining use of a sufficient truck, gas to fuel it, perhaps a night or two in a hotel, and provision for special needs.
–-When dogs arrive in Oakland County, their health is checked again. Medications and special foods are provided to the foster families.
–-Foster families are also provided with regular dog foods, blankets, towels, tarps, enclosures, pads, paper towels, and whatever else is beneficial for the particular situation.
–-Since some dogs are too ill or too injured to be adopted right away, fosters may be providing care for weeks before the animals are ready for adoption. Good Karma keeps in communication with and makes visits to the foster homes to make sure any necessary help is provided. This is also true regarding puppies that come too young to be away from their litters.
The more we invest in another, the greater our affection for that other grows. With all that the director of Good Karma invests in these dogs from the beginning, it should be no surprise that she is careful about the homes they will go into. She does not want any of her rescues to have to be re-rescued. However, she has continued to care for several adopted dogs. One of ours recently needed very expensive emergency medical help. Before committing to the veterinary hospitals recommended by others, I called Good Karma’s director to ask if she knew of any other options. She was able to arrange for a local vet to see our dog. He performed major surgery and our dog is recovering promisingly.
THANK YOU to all who have donated to help Good Karma help rescued dogs. The animals you assist provide protective, entertaining, and comforting companionship to hundreds of families.
