ADOPTED ON 10-15-16 - It is doubtful you will ever see a cuter little boy than Bean. His big, brown eyes and beautiful coat will melt your heart. Those floppy ears will make you want to scoop him up and dote on him all day long. And that is exactly what he deserves. After Bean and his sister were deserted at a stranger’s house the neighbor’s very large dogs tried to attack them. These babies were so scared and bewildered. They were only 7-8 weeks old and had no idea what was happening to them or where they were. Fortunately, the kind woman that lived at the house snatched them up and kept them in the house until there was room at the local rescue. If not for her, who knows what would have happened?

Today this adorable Lab mix is a playful and very loveable boy. He absolutely loves everyone; people and other dogs, and especially children, which indicates he would be a great addition to a family with young kids. Bean loves attention, as most puppies do. He is learning quickly and has a wonderful disposition. Bean deserves a loving home after his very rough start. He is happy and healthy and ready to go to his forever home.

Like all rescue dogs, Bean needs a safe and comfortable world where he will continue to thrive, grow and develop the amazingly special dog underneath. The only thing missing? A forever home of his own and endless love to celebrate his special qualities! Beans foster mom tells us he is surely a sweet mixture of all things great and will not be available long! Bean and his sister Misty get along so well that their foster said it would be terrific if these two could be adopted together but it's not a necessity.

Bean is in Winnsboro, LA; RDVG rescues dogs in the North and South, however, the dogs that are in the South are transported up every Saturday after they have completed all the recommended treatments and are directly adopted to an applicant.

DIRECT ADOPTIONS are adoptions where a dog is adopted from the rescue origin to their forever homes. Due to the many vaccinations, tests and procedures that are most essential for the dog in the beginning, the vet that originally treats the dog, will be able to continue with all phases of their needs to completion. Likewise, the original foster is a dependable and reliable resource to the adopter before and after the adoption. In the best interest of the dog, RDVG prefers direct adoptions.

We owe that to our dogs and the wonderful people who stand to be the last chapter of their rescue, and the first chapter of their new forever lives! Will you be Bean’s new family and make him a permanent part of your household?

This dog cannot be adopted to Massachusetts residents due to new laws regarding rescue dogs being prohibited from adoption. Please contact Patricia Cabral at: 617-626-1786 or Mike Cahill at: 617-626-1794
for questions regarding what dogs you are allowed to adopt.

Adoption fee for each dog is noted on their page and can sometimes vary.

Our Adoption Process...

Rescue Dog Village dogs are boarded and placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. We do not have a facility to visit - our dogs stay in private foster homes until adopted. We do our best to get to know each dog in our care so that we may be able to match them to the home best suited for their needs.

If you see a dog that you are interested in adopting, the process is as follows:

Step 1: The Application
Fill out an application. Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. We usually have no history of our rescue dogs and are therefore very careful about placing them in households with children.

You will need to provide employer information, explain why you want the dog, and describe your yard, your other pets and your former pets, if any.

Step 2: Vet Check
Provide a veterinarian reference.
•Call your vets office and give them permission to speak to us.
----If one of our volunteers contacts your vets office and they do not have permission to speak to us, it will hold up processing your application or result in closing it due to the volume of applicants we receive daily.

• Provide all information about your vet
----phone number.

We respect and value our volunteer’s time and they do NOT HAVE TIME TO LOOK UP YOUR VETS INFORMATION. We appreciate your help and respect to make sure we have all the information we need.

If you've never gone to one before, you will need to provide a reference. The group will contact them to ask about your ability to care for a pet.

Step 3: The Home Visit
Your application will be reviewed and sent to a volunteer in your area. The volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit within one week.

We require that everyone in the immediate family, including your current dog (if you have one) come to the appointment to meet your potential new dog. Adopting a dog is a big family decision and requires a commitment from everyone. If you currently own a dog, it must be up to date on shots, spayed/neutered and wear an i.d. tag.

Dogs from animal shelters can be amazing escape artists. By visiting your home, we can help you identify potential escape routes, and keep your new dog safe and secure.

Step 3: The Adoption
Before you bring your new dog home, you must sign an adoption contract with Rescue Dog Village.

Please remember that adoption contributions barely cover our expenses. Additional donations are greatly appreciated and will help us continue our life-saving work.

Sometimes situations arise which cannot be helped. If, for any reason, you are unable to keep a dog you’ve adopted from Rescue Dog Village, the dog cannot be given away.

It doesn’t matter how much time has passed since the adoption. You must either return the dog to Rescue Dog Village, or obtain approval from RDV to transfer ownership to a friend or relative.

If you and the dog you would like to adopt seem to be well matched, we will respond to your application by email. Feel free to contact us at any time regarding the status of your application.
