Vintage Pet Rescue

A Rhode Island based rescue and hospice home for senior dogs.


About Us

Vintage Pet Rescue is a Rhode Island based 501c3 non-profit. We protect and advocate for homeless senior dogs in need by providing cage-free sanctuary living for all of our rescue's residents, helping unwanted seniors find love in their final years through our adoption program, and increasing public awareness and interest in saving senior pets.


VPR was founded by Kristen and Marc Peralta (who met at an animal shelter in 2013). Their mutual love for senior dogs is the driving force behind our organization where we are committed to rescuing vintage (senior) dogs from shelters and assisting owners who can no longer care for their senior pets.


Kristen, Marc, and their team of volunteers make sure these animals are provided with love, attention, and medical care for the last months or years of their lives. To date, VPR has saved the lives of over 1,000 dogs.
