My story


Meet Digger (of the Smith family - Burt, Ginger, Digger, and Dooly)!

Digger is 12 years old (approx. DOB 7-10-10), **female, 60 lbs., vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped. Unfortunately, this family is in and very sad situation; they losing their home and need our help! The owner has been helping us rescue dogs for 8 years and we will not see her own dogs end up at the shelter!

Digger was found running down a Main Street in SC 11 years ago on New Year’s Day. Animal Control found her owner but he no longer wanted her   She doesn't care for the crate so she will need a home where crating not required. Uncrated she housetrained and never gets into anything and loves to lounge all day at your feet. Digger has met many foster dogs and liked them all! She also does well with cats and kids! Digger is well behaved and loving.......... she would be great pet for anyone! Stay tuned for more information as Digger is a new rescue!

Please note Fosters have 1st option of Adoption.

Disclosure:   Breed labels are often incorrect: we rarely know the genetic lineage of the dogs we rescue.  Many shelters and rescues specify breeds based on appearance; however, research has shown that less than 2% of a dog’s DNA determines appearance!   Passion 4 Paws does not practice the use of labels pertaining to compatibility with others or dog breed.  Labels such as “dog friendly” and “child friendly” should be used with caution as they often over-simplify the personalities and behavior of dogs.

More about this rescue

Passion 4 Paws is an animal rescue organization founded by Robin Shover of Shelburne, Vermont. Robin has invested many years learning best practices to rescue dogs primarily from death row at high kill shelters. Robin works very closely with Potters Angels Rescue out of Randolph, Vermont and decided the most effective way to save even more dogs is to continue working closely with PAR plus her own new entity in Chittenden County and surrounding areas. Many people who personally know Robin realize her "passion" and dedication to the dogs. P4Ps rescues dogs from high kill shelters, provides a safe environment with foster families and adopters, education for the community, and advocacy for animal rights. Our group will be staffed entirely by volunteers and will be served by a Board of Directors. Our efforts will be supported through donations, charity events, Corporate/Employee Benefit tax deductible donation programs, and the generosity of animal lovers from within the community. Our focus is on dog rescue only. All funds received will be used strictly for this purpose and will incorporate medical bills, transport fees, food and other items for the dogs, shelter fees, charity events, boarding, and training.
