Pets of the week




Urgent: 23 dogs are in need

We are in need of donations to get 23 dogs out of a hoarding situation in Alabama. Costs to vet and board these dogs will run $4,000–$6,000, assuming none of these pups have any serious illnesses or conditions. We have already rescued the momma dog and 3 tiny puppies. We need to raise the funds to rescue the remaining dogs.

Gracie needs some help

This sweet girl was rescued in Alabama and found her forever home here in Vermont. Since her arrival a cancerous tumor was found on her kidney and she needs surgery to remove it.

For the Love of Dogs/Vermont Dog Rescue is seeking donations to cover the surgery which will cost $3,000-$4,000.

Gracie is a loving young dog with many more years left in her.
