We adopted Akiko, now Chili, in 2016. Originally we had looked at a dog at a shelter in Battle Creek, but it wasn’t a match. We were in Battle Creek and decided to drive over to Kalamazoo to Animal Rescue Project to see if they had any small dogs available. That afternoon I met Chili and she stayed on my lap while I filled out the adoption application! Less than a week later we brought her home, and she has been an absolute angel. We love her so much! She came from Kentucky, about 3 years old, and was already house trained. She is 8 lbs. of love. So thankful for Animal Rescue Project.
