Pet of the week





Meet Grimm! 

Grimm is sweet, fun, and super cuddly. He is a young Pointer mix who would make a great addition to any family.

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.
