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. Be sure to indicate the name (or names) of the dog that is of interest. An adoption coordinator will get back to you within two to three days. Unless otherwise noted: all 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.
