Do you allow visitors?
Usually, yes! We have two visiting days per month, but due to COVID, all visiting days are currently on hold until further notice. We'll post an update here when it is safe to have visiting days again and will let you know how you can attend!
Do you need volunteers?
We love volunteers! We ask that our (Rhode Island based) volunteers commit at least one consistent day a week to volunteering at VPR (2-3 hours a week). We need our volunteers to get to know all our dogs and their little quirks. We also need to ensure that you are comfortable with our procedures and able to handle any issues that may arise. If you cannot commit to one day a week, then we ask that you come spend time with the pups during visiting day. If you would like to become a volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Are your dogs up for adoption?
Many of the dogs we take in are not up for adoption for numerous reasons. However, when we take in a healthy dog who is not quite ready for retirement or would thrive better in a home where they can get more individualized attention, we will put them up for adoption. To see the dogs that we are currently looking to place and to apply to adopt, please visit the Adoption Program page of our site.
I want to donate by check. Do you have a mailing address?
Thank you! Yes, we do. All checks can be mailed to:
Vintage Pet Rescue
PO Box 194

I need to re-home my senior dog. Can Vintage Pet Rescue help?
Unfortunately, we are usually at capacity. We need to ensure that we are financially and physically able to care for all the dogs at the facility so we cannot take every senior dog who needs a new home. We suggest reaching out to local shelters or rescues that may be able to help and we are happy to share any senior dogs who needs a new home on our social media.
How can I contact you?
