Once you've applied, been accepted to adopt, and chosen a dog through For the Love of Dogs/Vermont Dog Rescue, complete the Adoption Contract and return it to:


For the Love of Dogs/Vermont Dog Rescue
PO Box 1112
Waitsfield, VT 05673

Addendum A, for adopters of puppies, can be found here.

Then, pay the adoption fee through Paypal.

Instructions for paying your adoption fee through Paypal:

Click the Adoption Fee tab above

Log In if you already have a Paypal account or Sign Up for a free Paypal account if you don’t already have one

Link your bank account to your Paypal account instead of using a credit card to ensure that 100% of your fee goes toward paying for all health and transport costs incurred by For the Love of Dogs/Vermont Dog Rescue in relation to your adopted pup (if you choose to use a credit card, please consider adding $10 to cover Paypal’s transaction fee)

Click “Go to your account” at the bottom of the final sign-up page if you have just signed up for a free Paypal account

Click "Pay or send money" in the blue banner at the top of the page

Click “Send money to friends and family” on the right side of the page
