RESCUE DOG VILLAGE is a collaborative of dedicated rescuers in New England who work tirelessly to re-home deserving dogs from high kill shelters. Our dogs are assessed by a highly seasoned and dedicated volunteers who devote years of experience working with dogs in a variety of settings and ideal matches are made so the perfect forever homes can be found.

Although we are an extremely small rescue group, we understand and respect your family's eagerness to be in touch and learn as much as you can about the dogs you are considering adopting. Our very experienced and devoted volunteers will be happy to share all aspects of OUR RESCUE DOGS to determine compatibility once you've submitted your application, and another of our volunteers will explain the whole process of our rescue and answer any questions you might have as well.

Too many transitions make it harder on these dogs who've endured so much already in their precious lives, so we take great care to evaluate every aspect of their behavior and share that with potential adopters. We believe in FULL AND OPEN DISCLOSURE and adopt our dogs fully vetted and healthy. RESCUE TAKES A VILLAGE -- and we are honored to work with all who share our philosophy of working together to do what we can to make a difference BECAUSE WE CAN! The animals need us more than ever now. PLEASE CONSIDER ADOPTION TODAY

RESCUE DOG VILLAGE (RDV) is a small collaborative of like-minded folks who are dedicated to helping dogs in need. 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. All RDV dogs will be spayed or neutered and brought up to date on vaccines before adoption. We make no warranties as to the breed, age, health and/or temperament of our dogs. Each adoption is completed in partnership with our adopters.


All owner turn in applications are given special consideration by our rescue. Each dog has unique needs, and we take great care to match our rescued canines responsibly to the most suitable home.

1. Volunteer Application - the application helps us get to know you and what you would like to do;
2. Volunteer Agreement - once you have completed your application and hit the submit button, you will come to our Volunteer Agreement form. The agreement is meant to help you reflect on all aspects of volunteering, it risks, rewards and RDV policies;
3. Vet Check - We will need you to call your vets office and give them permission to speak to us. Our volunteers need to be responsible pet owners who understand the importance of regular vet care and assist us with making sure that our dogs donít wind up with the same type of owner that we have just rescued our dogs from.
