Black Friday Online Adoption Event

Rather than battling crowds the Friday after Thanksgiving, make it a Black Friday to remember by adopting a cat who needs a loving home. Back by popular demand, KAR is offering reduced adoption fees on all black or mostly black cats if an adoption application is submitted and approved between Friday, November 28th and Saturday, December 6th.

Black cats posted on the Adoptable Cats page of our website are $30 (regularly $60) and on the Adoptable Kittens page they are $75 (regularly $90). The adoption fee includes sterilization and all basic medical care. Here are the fabulous felines looking for their forever homes.

Over 1 year old ($30) ~ Charlie

Under 1 year old ($75) ~ Sparkles ~ Marquette ~ Josie ~ Zoey ~ Osborne ~ Sirius ~ Merlin ~ Clapton ~ Tesla ~ Springsteen ~ Belle ~ Blair

Submit an online application if you interested in more information and want to meet any of these black beauties.

Generous Hands for Rescued Pets

Double your donations for kids and pets this November!

Shaver Road Animal Hospital has partnered with KAR and Generous Hands to help local kids and local rescue pets in need with their “Generous Hands for Rescued Pets” Food Drive.

All November long, you can drop off “people food” donations at Shaver Road Animal Hospital to assist with the Generous Hands Friday Backpack program. You can learn more about Generous Hands and view a list of suggested donations items on their website.

At the end of the month, Shaver Road Animal Hospital will match “people food” pound for pound and donate cat and dog food to KAR. You can check out the daily totals on SRAH Facebook page. So far over 214 pounds of “people food” has been donated!

Please help us make a positive impact for kids and pets in need. Don’t forget you can always drop off pet food and supply donations at one of our adoption events or send us an email for other arrangements.


Join us for a fun, music-filled evening at the Kalamazoo State Theatre (map link) with Rock to the Rescue and Styx on Thursday, December 4th at 7:00 pm!

Rock to the Rescue is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by rock bands Styx and REO Speedwagon in 2002. They hold fundraisers at their concerts across the county to benefit shelters, youth music programs, animal rescues, food banks, sanctuaries and other nonprofits. Rock to the Rescue’s mission is to build strong communities through the support of grassroots, “underdog” organizations across the country.

Don’t miss out on the chance to win an autographed guitar! Kalamazoo Animal Rescue Volunteers will be selling raffle tickets before the concert begins. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the raffle proceeds will be given to KAR and the remaining funds will be added to support the Rock to the Rescue fund that gives grants to charities nationwide.

Learn more about Rock to the Rescue on their website and Facebook page.
