17 puppies looking for a new home

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — The Humane Society of West Michigan welcomed 17 news puppies Friday afternoon.  Pet Smart Charities had the puppies sent to West Michigan from Kentucky.

Animal shelters in other states don’t have the effective spay-and-neuter programs as areas like West Michigan, so places like Kentucky have an abundance of puppies.  Lucky for us they send them our way to find their forever homes.

The puppies are available for adoption starting Tuesday, November 11.  The cost is $300, which includes spay or neuter costs as well as a puppy training class, valued at $100.

    at 300 bucks for a “pound” puppy, these dogs aren’t getting a forever home anytime soon.
    at that price range most people want a breed with AKC registered papers.

      You seem to have no idea of the rising cost of animal medical care! These adoption prices inlude the puppies vaccinations,wormings,spay or neuter, food shelter while they wait for adoption. Check with a local vet for pricing! You pay less on medical for an adopted dog than from a breeder within the first year.

      A $300 AKC registered puppy is not going to be well bred and a person would run just a high a chance of health problems, if not more, as a pound puppy. PLUS, at $300, you are supporting the very breeders who ARE puppy mills and do not take their puppies back if there is an issue so they end up at the shelter! A shelter dog has at least been examined by a vet, dewormed, first shots and most likely a spay/neuter. All of which costs roughly $300 or more.

    you can also get a dog cheaper at the animal shelter-where there is a time limit on how long they are kept. I rescue all my dogs thru the “kill” shelters.-Cheryl
