There are millions of homeless dogs available for adoption and nowhere near that many rescue organizations to help. Why work with VT Dog Rescue? We are not like any other rescue. Our dogs are Underdogs and our adopters are Superstars!

Learn what sets us apart:

- We check references, but do not judge; we respect your time and reply to emails as quickly as possible;

- We are thankful for your interest in our pups;

- We listen to what you are looking for in a companion dog and, since we get to know the personality & temperaments of our rescued dogs, do our best to match you with the right dog.

Our adopters are amazing people who understand a rescue dog may come with some baggage from the past that they need help sorting through. We offer resources, support and are beside you every step of the way.

There is no other love quite like the love of a rescued dog.

Adoption Policy

We process applications as they come in, but dogs are not placed on a first come first served basis. After reviewing applications, we will email and then follow up with a phone call to discuss any questions or to review available dogs.

We receive many applications for each dog. Unfortunately, this means the dog you originally applied for may already be spoken for. However, we can suggest similar dogs who will be available in VT for you to meet.
