Available Dogs & Adoption Fees

-Puppies (12 months and younger)


-Puppies (unaltered)*


-Dogs (13 months and up)


-Dogs from Spa for Paws** 


*Village for Paws Rescue occasionally in order to save puppies has to pull them from the shelter before they are old enough to be spayed and neutered, while not ideal sometimes necessary…in the event this happens and we are unable to schedule before adoption the adoption fee is discounted to the amount listed above.

**Spa for Paws is a facility for daycare, boarding, and grooming. While here dogs receive the highest level of care and are given access to services such as decompression time, socialization, and any other programs/training they may need. This facility also enables us to receive beneficial information about the dogs specific to their personality and needs. The increase in adoption fee does not cover the total cost for their time there, but it does help the rescue to recover some of that expense.

What the adoption fee covers: 

  • Health exam and any required treatment prior to adoption

  • Spay/neuter (unless specified otherwise)

  • Up-to-date vaccinations

  • Pre-transportation incubation board at the point of origin

  • Transportation of the dog from the point of origin to Vermont

  • Delivery of the dog to the adopter at an agreed upon location in Vermont

Please visit our Facebook page for dogs available for adoption! If you do not have social media, please contact the rescue directly to discuss available dogs. 

Dogs Available for Adoption

Village for Paws Rescue is a no-facility rescue.  This means we do not run out of a shelter facility.  Our dogs are rescued from shelters in Southern parts of the US and Village for paws Rescue coordinates their transport  to Vermont where they go into a foster home or directly to an approved adopter. If you are ready to adopt please fill out our application.  Feel free to reach out or check back as we are continuously rescuing. SO many dogs need is our mission to save as many as we can.  When age appropriate all dogs are spayed or neutered. All dogs are vet checked prior to travel and current on all vaccinations.

Please contact Village for Paws Rescue directly to learn more about current dogs available for adoption
