About Pawsibilities Rescue
We are a 501c3 non-profit, no Kill animal rescue accepting all animals when proper housing allows. Dealing with everything from exotic birds and fish to horses and cows. We are a Rescue that has been around for over 30 years in the Eaton county area. Networking is key in the continuing success of rescuing. All of our network connections have made it possible throughout the years to properly help us find the perfect home/environment for the rescue animals in question. We could not place as many animals as we do without their help. The 16-acre farm that Pawsibilities rescue is allowed to house their animals on, always has room for expansion. Every year here at Pawsibilities rescue we will be striving to create more room to provide the perfect environment to whatever animal may come our way. we will only house what we can afford to properly care for.

Hi, my name is Jennifer and I became a foster parent on January 31st, 2014. My husband Matt and I received the call while at lunch and made our decision without hesitation. That’s not to say that it came without a lot of consideration, we just knew in our hearts that it was the right choice for us. What I did not realize was the impact that becoming a foster parent would have on my life!
After researching the foster care system, I was shocked to learn that there is such a need for foster homes in not just Michigan, but right here in our own community. These children are removed from their home for various reasons and need a safe, loving home to live at while permanent placement is established. Whether that is reunification with birth parents or placed with an adoptive family, we decided that we could provide that safe, loving home in between.
During my research I realized that some of these children often bounce from one foster home to another at various times throughout their lives. Not only are these children moved around from home to home, many of them carry their belonging with them in trash bags only. According to many blogs and articles I have read in the past few months, children that have to do this often feel like they are being thrown out with the trash. This absolutely broke my heart and I realized I wanted to help these children.
I contacted my foster care specialist to see if there were any programs in Eaton County that provided suitcases or large duffel bags to children who are placed in foster care. I was shocked to hear that there was not, and at that exact moment I knew I had found my calling. After a lot of consideration, my husband's insane amount of encouragement and support, and a meeting with the Eaton County DHS office, Guardian Angels Suitcases 4 Kids was born!
Our mission is to provide suitcases or large duffel bags, as well as a Care Bag to each child that enters the foster care system.
