-->> To Adopt:
Each one of the dogs we have rescued, has been fully vetted, microchipped, nursed and loved in our homes as honorary members of our families, We believe most of our rescued dogs have been through enough pain, heartache, neglect, abandonment and sadness in their lives before coming to us.
-->> We believe it is our duty to protect each dog going forward, to that end we have certain protocols in place to screen their potential homes and verify their well-being after: Including but not limited to an adoption application, home visit, veterinary history verification, references, proof of homeownership, home owners association pet policies, copies of leases and pet agreements, etc... These requirements are in place to protect all parties involved. (If out of all the applicants for that pet you are chosen then we can all be comforted in knowing the best match was found).

-->> It is our policy that If for any reason adopter can no longer properly care for pet, no longer wants pet, or can not keep pet for any reason, our adoption agreement stipulates we must be notified immediately and Pet must be safely brought back to us in Vermont.

-->> About meet and greets: About Deception:
We verify all submitted or implied applicant information. If you or your contacts have mislead us in any manner or at any time during life of dog your application will be rejected, adoption contract will be voided & we will immediately reclaim possession of dog. Fraud and breach of contract are not tolerated.
