our unique adoption experience

 

"Rescue the dogs, Train the humans!"

From the moment our adoptable pups arrive in Vermont, they live in a well-trained foster home (not a kennel or shelter) for AT LEAST 2 weeks prior to adoption. This means that each pup receives one-on-one personalized care, each and every day prior to adoption.  They are getting the best healthcare, eating high quality foods {with super food supplements such as Omega 3s, probiotics, digestive enzymes, and more!}, they are learning healthy social skills with the whole family {including other canines}, as well as learning and developing good manners, building their confidence in every-day life experiences. learning how to love their crate for quality resting time, and teaching their foster humans all about themselves so we can help them find their ideal human match!

MOST IMPORTANTLY: we hold our adopters accountable to maintain great health and behavioral/emotional wellness for their canine companion by requiring training with a professional canine trainer to ensure a smooth transition, canine-human understanding, and life-long stress-free awesome life together!!! We ask that you receive professional training for your new canine companion and yourself within the first 6 months post-adoption, and maintain that good stuff for the lifetime of your adoptive fur child.  {For a list of some awesome trainers we recommend, please reach out!}. 
 

Please note that due to the nature of our post-adoption support, WE ONLY ADOPT TO THOSE IN VERMONT OR IMMEDIATE SURROUNDING TERRITORIES (within 100 miles of Burlington, Vermont). 

 

We appreciate your understanding and compassion for our rescued canine kids!!! Please contact us if you have ANY questions regarding the application, our adoption process, or about the personality/lifestyle requirements of our adoptable companions <3
