Van Gundy family picks up dog who was last one left at Northern Michigan shelter

Eastwood is no longer without a home


DETROIT – The dog who was the only one left at a Michigan animal shelter after pet adoption day last month has finally met his new family.

Detroit Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy saw the story about Eastwood, a 1-year-old special needs pup, who was the last dog standing at Little Traverse Bay Humane Society.

The coach and his family stepped in to give Eastwood a forever home.

The Van Gundy family picked up their new family member Tuesday morning.

“We are so grateful to the Van Gundy family for the awareness they are bringing to adoption and for opening their hearts to make a difference that will change Eastwood’s life forever,” remarked Cathy Bissell, founder of BISSELL Pet Foundation. “Every shelter pet deserves a second chance. So many pets are waiting to be adopted and we hope telling Eastwood’s story will help save those pets too.”

Kim Van Gundy leads the Detroit Pistons Wives and Family Charitable Group and is excited to welcome Eastwood to their family.

"Special thank you to BISSELL Pet Foundation for sponsoring Empty the Shelters,” commented Kim Van Gundy, Eastwood’s new mom. “If it were not for Empty the Shelters, our family would not have seen Eastwood. We always believe our animals find us."
