ADOPTED - Eddie ADOPTED - Barsky



At Pound Buddies we understand the power of putting people and pets together.

Adopting a dog will change your life…for the better.  Studies have shown that owning a dog can lower blood pressure, improve activity levels, reduce stress, fight depression, aid in childhood development and enhance the quality of family life.  Best of all, dogs love and accept us for who we are.  They don’t care what we look like, where we live or how much money we make.

Adopting from Pound Buddies also means you have literally saved a life.  It is a sad fact that there are many more homeless dogs in Muskegon County than available homes.  Every dog adopted through Pound Buddies means one less dog facing the prospect of euthanasia.

We strive to find permanent, loving homes for the dogs in our care.  Our adoption process is meant to ensure a successful match between people and pets.  It typically takes several days to process and approve an adoption application, so we ask for your patience.  A successful adoption is the important beginning to many wonderful years with your new pet.

Please see our Adoption Policies and Fees and Adoption Application to begin the adoption process for that special pet who is waiting just for you.
