Areas Carolina Canine Rescue Burlington VT Serves

We adopt anywhere in the United States and Canada. We have affordable transportation available to most northeastern states. We also have a private driver that delivers to your door. Adopted pets are delivered in less than 24 hours once leaving our rescue! Adopters are also welcome to drive down to pick their new family members up if preferred. For our pets to be flown they must be in the cabin with someone.

Carolina Canine Rescue Burlington VT's Adoption Process

We do require an adoption application and an adoption contract, which can be found on our website at Adoption fees vary. You must be at least 20 years of age to apply. You must have a vet reference for current or previous pets and/or have 2 good personal references (if you don't have a vet reference).

All of our available pets are rescued from NC and VA where the county animal shelters euthanize up to 100% of the animals. Many of the southern county shelters still euthanize with the gas chamber and by heart stick.

Each of our pets are quarantined for a minimum of 2 weeks before going to their new home to ensure health. Each pet is checked by our veterinarian and receives a certificate of health for travel and is micro-chipped. All pets are given their age appropriate vaccinations and are dewormed. Pets over 6 months of age are sterilized and heartworm checked. Veterinary records accompany each pet. (Our pets may be posted in more than one location in an effort to maximize exposure so we can get these fur babies adopted to make room for those pets waiting to be saved!) If for some reason your adoption isn't working out within the first 2 weeks, our rescue will take the pet back and refund your adoption fee. (We do make every effort to make sure the pet is a good match for your home before leaving the rescue, including speaking with the foster and watching their videos on our YouTube channel CCR923.) All of our pets are in foster homes. We do not have a facility.

About Carolina Canine Rescue Burlington VT

We are a small, nonprofit group. We rely only on our adoption fees to survive. We have been rescuing, vetting, and rehabilitating dogs and puppies since 2009. We take in dogs and puppies from our county kill shelter, as well as, abandoned and injured dogs and puppies, regardless of their age or any health issues. We do not turn any away due to health issues. We have taken in dogs with heartworms, mange, physical handicaps, injuries, severe malnutrition, etc. You name it, we've probably seen it! We get these pooches back to good health then begin our search for just the right home for this pet! One advantage we have over other rescues is that two of our volunteers are in wheelchairs, so many of our pooches are already used to being around individuals with special needs!

We also help individuals in our community rehome their pets if needed. When an individual agrees to allow us to rehome their puppies, we spay their mother dog for them free of charge.

We also offer low cost spay neuter transport service locally. We also recommend local and out of state spay neuter voucher programs as needed.
