Adoption saves lives

If you're interested in learning more about any of these dogs, or know that you are ready to adopt, please complete the Adoption Application. An application must be on file to be considered for adoption.

Puppies have special needs and will only be placed in a home where they can be monitored often (they should not be left alone for more than 4 hours at a time). Please consider your time and space limitations before applying to adopt a puppy.

Unless otherwise noted: 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.

Additional information about bringing home a rescue can be found in our Guidelines for Adopters of Rescue Dogs.

Bruce – adoption Pending

Terrier, American Pit Bull
2-3 yrs, 52 lbs, male
Current on vaccinations, neutered
Bruce's rescue in Alabama has this to say about Bruce:
Hurricane Harvey is not his friend, but kids are!! He loves children! When he was given a bath, he loved it more than any other dog! Bruce would lay on his side to just let the water drizzle on him...tongue out and legs stretched out. He was in heaven! He would whimper when the water hose was not running over his belly. He plays well with other dogs, too. He's an all around chill guy!! He’s a fan favorite!!

Wally will have eye surgery to remove cherry eye; also has some nerve damage to his front right paw causing him to slightly drag his toes which results in his nails being worn down but no surgery required and it does not slow him down or cause him any pain (should probably wear doggy booties to protect the skin and nails if on hard, rough surface otherwise will not need booties on grassy areas or carpet or any other soft surface)

Han Solo and Princess Leia

Han Solo and Princess Leia arrived at the Alabama shelter after Hurricane Harvey. Han Solo and Princess Leia were part of a cruelty case, stuck in a small kennel together when found. They have never ever been apart and thus are considered a bonded pair and must be adopted together.
