Eastwood Finds His Forever Home

Eastwood Finds His Forever Home

It’s hard being the only one left behind when all your friends find a forever home. Eastwood, a one-year-old red-coated Labrador retriever mix, was the last dog left at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society in Harbor Springs, MI, after BISSELL Pet Foundation's (BPF) Empty the Shelters event in April. The one year old pup was found wandering the streets last winter, cold, limping and nearly blind. Eastwood was born with a leg deformity and vision problems.

In the days following Empty the Shelters, Stan Van Gundy, head coach of the Detroit Pistons, and his family heard Eastwood’s story. As they learned more about him, they knew they had found their dog. The Van Gundys have always been adoption advocates, with 1 rescue dog and 6 rescue cats already in their home. They are sharing their story to encourage others to adopt, not shop. 


Fortunately, BPF was at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society to catch the Eastwood meeting his new family for the first time.

“This adoption was a slam dunk,” exclaimed Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation.  “This is a great family that understands the importance of giving shelter pets the second chance they deserve.  I hope everyone follows the Van Gundys’ example and chooses adoption first!”
