Thank you for your interest in adopting a rescue dog! All Breed Rescue wants to make certain that every dog goes to the right home where it will not only be loved and cared for but also fit with the adopter’s lifestyle. The questions on this application are intended to help us find the best canine companion for you and your family.
I acknowledge that I have read and understand the policies and fees associated with adopting a dog found on the adoption information page.
Our fees are based on the costs associated with saving dogs from high kill shelters. These fees cover the costs to pull a dog from the shelter, provide vetting, Spay or Neuter, transport to Vermont and one month of vetting and food.
