Breed Specific - Dog
Dog Breed Specific Rescue List - Michigan:

Breed specific dog rescues are generally smaller in size and VERY specific about what breed they take into their rescue/adoption program (generally only purebred animals or strong mixes that display traits of the breed). Some breed specific rescues listed are the Michigan branch of larger national breed specific organizations, with local contacts and foster homes. All-breed rescues take in purebred dogs as well.

Rescues are listed alphabetically by the name of the breed of dog.
