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.

Pup of the Month: Please Meet "Mist"

Approx. 6 years old, 67 lbs. Female, vetted, is or will be spayed, and micro-chipped.

Mist is very friendly and absolutely loves affection! Our rescue team met her during our visit to the shelter in October. She was found as a homeless stray. Mist is a good girl who knows “Sit” and will roll over for belly rubs! She is currently being fostered in Vermont and patiently awaiting her forever home!
