Become a Foster

Foster a rescue dog in need who is waiting for their forever home.


There are many ways to support our mission and dogs in need.

Passion 4 Paws’ mission is to rescue homeless, abandoned, neglected or abused dogs primarily from the South where there are thousands of dogs in need.

By working with committed Fosters, Volunteers, Supporters, Adopters, Veterinarians, and Trainers both in Vermont and in the South, we rescue, nurture, provide medical care, housing, and rehabilitation to these precious pups while providing them with a safe and loving environment for as long as it takes their families to find and Adopt them into their forever homes.

Spotlight: Meet Waylon!

12 mos. old, male, 20 lbs., vetted, is or will be neutered, micro-chipped.

Per Waylon’s current Vermont Foster: he is house-trained and working on crate-training but is very well behaved when left in the house alone. He absolutely loves to play with other dogs, large and small, and is submissive in nature. He loves to go for walks, jogs, hikes, play fetch, play tug and go on adventures in the woods! He is medium energy, but definitely a puppy. He has very nice manners and is highly motivated by treats, so very trainable. He is gentle and polite when given treats. Waylon is a fantastic little dog!
