Vermont Animal Rescue and Adoption Listings

The rescue of Vermont dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, and small domestic mammals, is critical to the well-being of these companions.  This page is dedicated to providing rescue lists for all Vermont pets.  We thank all those people who give unselfishly to the saving and placement of the less fortunate, and we hope that any heartache you encounter is overwhelmed by the happiness you make.

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  It is PGAA’s desire to provide a list of adoption and rescue sites that rescue pets and, hopefully, place them into new loving and caring homes.  While we make every effort to only publish links from reputable rescue agencies, we HAVE NOT physically reviewed these organizations.

Your assistance in the rescue of an animal is greatly appreciated by the pet, the rescue organization, us, and YOU!.  Let us know of any unfavorable experiences that you may have had with any rescue/adoption group.

Vermont Adoption and Rescue Organizations.

Please use caution when considering placing an animal with any one involved in animal rescue, or if you get an animal from a rescue/adoption agency. Get references and do some investigation on your own.  Long-distance/sight unseen adoptions can be risky.

A “Yes” in the No-Kill column means that the rescue is a shelter where animals are only euthanized if they are too sick to be treated or too aggressive to be suitable for adoption.
