About Our Rescue Group:White River Animal Rescue is a private rescue, not a shelter. We are an ALL_VOLUNTEER, 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to saving dogs and puppies. WRAR Directors and volunteers do not accept a salary for their services. We provide: Placement and adoption of abandoned dogs and puppies. Vaccination, microchipping, and other necessary veterinary care. All dogs over the age of 4 months are spayed and neutered. WRAR provides financial assistance to those who cannot otherwise afford to spay or neuter their pet.
Please do your homework before adopting a rescue dog or puppy. Dogs/puppies are work. Rescue dogs are not perfect. They are MOST often not obedience trained, not housebroken, not socialized well. Please note: WE DO NOT HAVE A PHYSICAL SHELTER. Our animals are in foster homes throughout Vermont, Connecticut, and New Hampshire. Appointments are necessary to meet the animals. We at White River Animal Rescue believe that the adoption of a dog or puppy is a COMMITMENT and, once adopted, is a member of the family. Although not pleasant, we do have the right to deny any application, and you must be 25 years or older to adopt from us. All adoptions are made at the discretion of WRAR, and an adoption may be denied at the staff’s discretion.
Our Adoption Process:In order to continue to rescue and re-home all the dogs and puppies that our rescue saves, we need to charge an adoption fee. If you wish to participate in rescuing a dog, please try to understand why we need to charge an adoption fee. Our adoption fee is $450.00 We are a non-profit organization dependent upon these fees and any donations in order to continue our rescue efforts. The adoption fee includes transportation and veterinarian fees.
WRAR does screen all potential adopters. This means that an application must be submitted for review and a phone interview with the Rescue Director. Both of these requirements must happen before a visit with any of our dogs.
Let's be honest!
We are all busy. Rescue people are VERY busy with this in mind, also understand that your email inquiry is one out of a dozen other inquiries. So in the spirit of friendly customer service keep the following in mind for any inquiry to any rescue:
A question such as: "Could I have more information about (insert dog name here)? Is vague and confounding. "Information" for one person is not the same "information" to someone else.
"Is the puppy housebroken?" Really? If you ask this question please realize that your email is immediately deleted.
"Is the puppy good with kids?" The question should be "Are your children good with puppies?" Humans are responsible for dog behavior. Puppies are not responsible for their behavior. Parents are responsible for their children's behavior around puppies.
