Great Lakes Bay Animal Society Reaches Adoption Milestone

Great Lakes Bay Animal Society Reaches Adoption Milestone

October 9, 2012

The Great Lakes Bay Animal Society (GLBAS), founded in February of this year, has reached its first of many milestones and is pleased to announce the placement of over fifty rescued animals into permanent loving homes within the greater Great Lakes Bay region.

The fiftieth adoption of Karma the kitten to Michelle Robinson and her son Conner, from Merrill, was recently completed. Karma’s adoption more than doubles the GLBAS projected goal of placing twenty-five rescued animals by January of 2013. As of October 1, 2012 over seventeen dogs, thirty-nine cats, and one rabbit have been placed through the GLBAS Foster Program.

Karma, renamed Carmel, is doing well. “We love her and she fit into the family right away“ stated Michelle. She said the adoption process was  “wonderful” and she and Conner are happy they adopted Carmel.

The Great Lakes Bay Animal Society (GLBAS) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) companion animal rescue founded in February 2012.  GLBAS rescues animals from lower adoption and overcrowded animal shelters in the Great Lakes Bay region and surrounding areas.  Rescued animals are cared for in volunteer foster homes, receive the appropriate medical care, and are then adopted into prescreened homes to assure the best match between the adoptive family and pet.
