For the Love of Dogs / Vermont Dog Rescue is a foster-based, shelterless rescue located in the Mad River Valley, Vermont. We commit to rescuing and rehoming dogs from Vermont and numerous southern states, while we educate and raise awareness of dog rescue.

Pet of the week



This beautiful guy is sweet and gentle and very well-behaved. He will make a terrific family pet!

Read more about Reb and our other adoptable dogs.

All our dogs have been fully vetted and spayed/neutered; all have tested heart worm–negative; all are currently awaiting rescue in Alabama, Georgia, or Tennessee, and, upon adoption approval, FLD/Vermont Dog Rescue will transport them to Vermont.


Each year, FLD / Vermont Dog Rescue transports hundreds of dogs to New England from high-kill shelters in NYC, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, and Virginia. Choose to adopt your next dog rather than buying your dog from a puppy mill or breeder.
