Do you allow visitors? 

Unfortunately, we are not currently having visiting days due to COVID. When we begin doing them again, we will let you know!


Do you need volunteers? 

We love having regular volunteers! We ask that our volunteers be based in Rhode Island and 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. We currently do not need any more volunteers, but keep a lookout for when we do in the future.


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 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 Adopt page of our site. 

What is your adoption fee? 

We do not have an adoption fee, though we do encourage anyone who adopts from us to make a donation!

How do I become a foster for Vintage Pet Rescue? 

We are always looking for new short term fosters in the Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Connecticut area to take care of a dog temporarily until we find them their forever home. If you're interested in being a foster, you can click here to apply.


I want to donate by check. Do you have a mailing address?

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?

If you have a question that we didn't answer here, feel free to email us at adopt@vintagepetrescue.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
