Hazel

Hazel

Hazel and her brother Gomez were delivered to the shelter in Darlington, SC in February 2021 when they lost their home due to no fault of their own. At the end of April, Hazel made the trip to Vermont and has enjoyed settling in to her foster home and learning some new skills. Hazel currently lives with an 8 year old playful staffy mix, and a 13 year old laid back pittie mix, and does a great job listening to feedback from the resident dogs and adjusting her approach accordingly. She has a very lean athletic body and loves to hike, play fetch, do parkour, dabble with agility, and jog/walk around the neighborhood. Hazel is searching for an active home and would love to have

Dakota ADOPTION PENDING

Dakota ADOPTION PENDING

ADOPTION PENDING Traveling all the way from the “Lone Star State,” introducing Dakota! If you are looking for a partner to join you on long walks or if hiking is your thing, Dakota is a dream to take with you on-leash. Dakota’s foster Mom describes him as a sweet soul, gentle, and sensitive, loves his humans and likes following you around the house as you go about your business. He will make some lucky family a wonderful companion. On the shy side meeting new people, he might be happier in a quieter home with not a lot of people coming and going. Dakota likes other dogs, so he wouldn’t mind sharing a home with a confident, playful doggy that would help build up his confidence.

Remington

Remington

Look at that face! Young, active (but not hyper), with a goofy and sweet personality.....everyone loves Remington! Remington was seized from his previous owner for neglect, arriving at a small rural shelter in Texas, thin with sores on his elbows. He is currently in a foster home in Vermont, quickly growing accustomed to being well-cared, learning basic obedience skills, house manners, and being a part of the daily activity of a loving family. His foster family describes Remington as the most loyal companion, bonds quickly with his people, and a big snuggle bug. Remington is house and crate trained, gets along with other friendly dogs, and enjoys daily walks and hikes. He would do fine as an only furry canine, or would do best with

Brock

Brock

Brock was picked up as a stray and landed in a South Carolina shelter where he waited for months before finally being rescued and transported to Vermont to start a new life. Brock is currently in a foster home and has completed level 1 and 2 life skills training. His foster Mom has been working hard to strengthen his skills and help him gain more confidence around new people. While Brock is cuddly, affectionate, and a loyal companion to his people, as he is maturing through the teen stage has become leery and fearful of strangers and can be reactive if he is uncomfortable. Brock is searching for a special adopter, one who appreciates that not all dogs are happy go lucky meeting new people

Archer

Archer

Looking for a new best friend? Check out Archer! With his friendly, social, good-natured, and super loveable personality, he is ready to join in on any fun family adventure. This handsome head turner with dark brindle coat, tall perky ears, and lean athletic body, is well-suited for long walks, hiking, a jog around the block, family outings, and would be a great candidate for agility or other dog sports. Archer enjoys a good game of tug, hanging out with doggy friends, and is just as content to chill at his human’s feet or cuddle up on the couch. He would be happy to be paired up with other dogs in his new home (cats unknown). Archer is housebroken, has an excellent “sit,” is smart and

Olive

Olive

ADOPTION PENDING Meet Olive! Olive is a darling 25 lb stubby-legged, happy little girl; so loving and snuggly, with a crooked tail that never stops wagging. She bonds quickly with her people, just adores being with her person; she will follow you wherever you go, wriggle up next to you on the couch, always with an abundance of kisses. Olive has loads of energy and needs daily walks and/or playtime. Being good on-leash, she makes a wonderful walking companion and also has good off-leash skills for hiking adventures; she’ll run and run, and has a great recall when you use a dog whistle. Olive loves car rides. She’s had some car sickness early on, but she may be past that. She gets a little anxious

Sadie

Sadie

If you LOVE HOUNDS, you need to meet Sadie! Sadie is most likely a Bluetick Walker Coonhound, approximately 3 years old, and 55 lbs. She is house and crate trained, but is allowed free run of the first floor when home alone as she has nice house manners. Sadie is a very social and loyal companion. She does like to be the boss, or the “sheriff,” as they call her at doggy day care, so she might be a better match with an older male dog in a new home, or submissive female, even though she is friendly with most all other dogs…a feline-free home would be best. Sadie is gentle and sweet with grandchildren, ages 2 and 5, and allows them to hug and

DENVER & NIRVANA (TOGETHER)

DENVER & NIRVANA (TOGETHER)

These cuties are still looking for a family to welcome two canine friends into their home! DENVER & NIRVANA are two very special friends and will make the right family proud and make their world a better one! Denver is as sweet as he is fluffy! This shy guy just wants to feel secure and loved. Denver was found as a stray and although he is shy and slow to warm up to new people, once you gain his trust, he is affectionate, cuddly, and playful. He has kind eyes and a gentle soul. He is about 10 months old and about 30 pounds, plus all the fluff! Denver has been with his foster family for a few months. He had been gaining confidence, learning

LOLA

LOLA

LOLA! A very kind, loving and HAPPY dog! We are not really sure of her past as she was brought in by Animal Control. She was pregnant, heartworm positive, had a wound on her nose, an imprint around her neck where she was probably tied and missing some front teeth AND her back foot. The consensus is that she was either caught in a trap and chewed her foot off; or was used as a bait dog. We will never know, but what we do know is that Lola , notwithstanding her past is, is living every day as a happy, full of life dog! Lola has been treated for her heartworms, her wounds have healed AND we even had a very special prosthesis made

PENNY

PENNY

PENNY! A beautiful 6 +/- year old Yellow Lab mix is now in need of finding a new family to join. She is a very loved, taken care of member of a family now, but since a baby has joined the family, Penny has become overly anxious and has a hard time settling with the new baby energy in the home. The family has tried hard to make things more calming for her with trainers, veterinarians, etc.. but it has been decided that Penny would be much happier in a quieter home without children or other pets. Penny needs a dog savvy family that can give her the time and training, and one on one attention she needs to once again become a confident dog

DONOVAN KITTY

DONOVAN KITTY

PERSONALITY PLUS! This handsome boy DONOVAN is about 5-7 years old and is ready to entertain a family of his own! This guy is super social, very engaging, playful, cuddly and always seeking affection. He enjoys the company of other playful kitties and lives in a home with respectful dogs. He is current on vaccinations, FELV/FIV tested negative and neutered. Why he spent 3 years in a shelter, we will never know. Thankfully one of our foster mom's saw him and obviously reminded her of her own kitty (that she rescued from the same shelter) that looks and acts just like him! If you are looking for a kitty that acts more like a dog, and want a special feline friend, send in an application!

WHITNEY

WHITNEY

WHITNEY! Our special little Golden Bear is looking for a special person or persons to be her family. Whitney is beautiful on the outside and a sweet, shy soul on the inside. She has worked very hard to come out of her shell with her foster mom and foster canine siblings. She is happy, social and engaging now that she has had a safe and secure world and is ready to find a forever family that can provide her a similar home. We think Whitney is around 4-5 years old and she’s about 35 pounds. Whitney will need a fenced in yard and another well balanced canine friend in the home to provide her comfort, stability and a play friend. Whitney has earned free roam

LILY

LILY

LILY! This little girl is a gem! She is sweet, low key, a tad on the shy side, gentle, softly engages and is learning that snuggling feels so good. Lily is about 3-4 months old and being fostered in a home with kiddos, kitties and other dogs. She gets along with them all fabulously. She is learning her basic house manners including potty training, like a star. She searches for her people, interested in learning, seeks out her canine friends for play and is very respectful of kitties. Her foster mom describes her as medium energy, attentive, respectful and eager to please. We are looking for Lily's ideal home which would be with a family that has plenty of time to bring up a well

Lare Bear

Lare Bear

Hi Y’all I’m Larry! I also respond to Lare Bear, Bear Bear, or just puppy. I’ve taken a long time to come out of my shell at my foster home, I’m very shy. But now that I have, I’m playful, adorable, and very well behaved! I absolutely love my fellow dogs, I feel most comfortable around them so I’ll do best in a house with another dog who can teach me the ropes and help build confidence. I’ve been to the dog park with my foster brother Reggie, what an amazing place! I licked every dog in the face! I love to play with humans or independently. I really like sleeping in and I have the bladder of a CHAMP. I’ve spent a lot of

Serenity

Serenity

Stunningly beautiful with her unique brindle and white coat, Serenity politely engages with all people and is playfully interactive with other dogs. She is currently in a foster home where she is brushing up on basic obedience skills, crate training, house manners, and building her confidence in new situations. She enjoys going to work with her foster Mom, hanging out in the office and mingling nicely with co-workers. She is young, medium energy level, loves to be outside, so a family looking for a companion for long walks, hiking, outdoor play time with humans and other dogs would be a great fit. Just send in your application and say, "She's the one for me!" 1-2 years old, terrier mix, 47 lbs

Ms MAE!

Ms MAE!

MS. MAE! Ms. Mae is looking for a home where she can release the instincts of a Coonhound! She has had a lovely family for 2 years, but it has been realized that living in the “city” of Burlington is not an ideal lifestyle for the freedom spirit of this lovely girl. She loves and is loyal to her current mom and dad. Engages in attention, eager to learn and please, loves adventure, enjoys toys, runs like the wind and knows a good couch snuggle. Ms. Mae probably didn’t have a good experience prior to her being adopted with kiddos. Kiddos make her nervous and un-settled, so she will need a home without kiddos. We think Ms. Mae would thrive in a home with an

SYDNEY

SYDNEY

Sweet SYDNEY has completed her heartworm treatment and is now ready for her furever family! Our sweet, sensitive golden girl of about 37 pounds is a little shy at first, dipping her feet to test the waters kinda gal, but once she warms up she shows off the best wiggles and waggles and incites you to be her friend with her sweet demeanor, riveting eyes and comedic facial expressions. She guarantees to make you laugh with the cutest and funniest faces you’ll ever see! Sydney has done really well working on her leash manners and has enjoyed meeting all the other dogs that have come her way. She’s a little shy when meeting some people but once she’s sniffed them over, she’s eager to be

RUBY

RUBY

Now Available: RUBY! Ruby is our 10 month old mixed breed pup from our Partner Rescue in Costa Rica. Ruby was found as a young pup, either abandoned or left on the beach with an injured eye. Thankfully, one of our passionate volunteers took Ruby and her siblings off the beach and provided a temporary home for them and giving them the love, nutrition and vet care they needed. Ruby’s eye was beyond treatment and the best thing that could be done for Ruby was to remove her eye. She was a trooper through surgery and has fully recovered. Ruby’s luck again changed when one of our flight angels visited Costa Rica and offered Ruby a ride back to Vermont so we can find her

Maisey (formerly Tiffany)

Maisey (formerly Tiffany)

Our beautiful girl Maisey is searching for a special home as she can be fearful in new situations, with strangers and unfamiliar noises that sometimes will scare her. Maisey is very friendly and affectionate with the people she trusts and would make a great pal and playmate for another confident dog, one she could learn from and find comfort in when she is feeling anxious and unsure of herself. She is also friendly with cats and even kittens. Maisey would do best in a quieter, kid-free home, where she can relax and settle into a more predictable routine. She is not high energy, but more of a laid back girl who enjoys daily walks and is learning to play fetch. Maisey also likes to go

She is approximately 50lbs, up-to-date on all vaccines, altered, micro-chipped, and great with dogs, cats, and kids. Browning is crate trained, knows commands, and is in great health. Browning’s family is moving and can’t take her with them.

We need to secure a family for her so she can get a ticket to ride north and start a new life. Please consider making this sweet girl a part of your family and giving her second

Duke

Duke

Once living a life of neglect, Duke has received lots of TLC and all of the medical care he has needed, including a professional dental cleaning, and has put on some much needed weight. Duke is now a much happier, healthier boy and is ready to interview with families looking to love and cherish an older, more distinguished fella, who is still very active and young at heart. Duke is crate trained, gentle, and has the sweetest temperament. In his former life he was most likely an outdoor dog that lived with a pack for hunting, so he is working hard on his house manners and would benefit from a patient family who will continue his training, or join an obedience class. In his foster

ROSCOE

ROSCOE

Our Super Handsome boy ROSCOE has been surrendered to us by his owner who has had a change in her life that has resulted in the very difficult decision to find a new home for this lovely boy where he can once again be the special companion he was with her for so many years. ROSCOE is approximately 7 years old. Best guess of breeds might include lab; Swiss Mountain Dog, Border Collie, or maybe Pyrenees. He is a big, solid boy at 85 pounds, but is a gentle soul. He is a bit on the reserved side with strangers but will engage once given time. He is a complete love bug, loyal friend, snuggler, an excellent greeter to his owners and a pleaser. Roscoe

GIGI

GIGI

GIGI! Ms. Gigi is our gentle giant mix of Great Pyrenees/Border Collie! She is approximately 2 years old and full grown at 75 pounds. Gigi, like so many others, came from a Southern shelter (Alabama) as a Stray, after nobody came to claim her. Gigi is now in North Ferrisburgh, Vermont where she joined a family hoping to be a good companion for their other dog, however despite her playful nature, and good manners, the family have come to the realization that their current dog would be happier without a 2nd pup in the home. Gigi is a sweetheart. She loves people and kiddos! She engages all with equal opportunity for pets and belly rubs. Despite her size, she has learned pretty good manners during
