Most of our Papillons are adopted as close as possible to their foster homes. Each foster parent gives their heart and love to the butterflies in their care and it is hard to part with them. If you are interested in a Papillon that is not in your home state, you may still send an application, however, every effort is first made to place the dogs within a reasonable distance.We require that the applicant is willing to come to the home to meet the dog and to be sure the match is a good one.
While not all homes are suitable for the physically and emotionally fragile dogs that come into our rescue, we tend to have more people willing to rescue our Papillons than we have dogs available. We are grateful for the kindness of so many people. There may be a delay in finding the right dog for you, and each application is carefully scrutinized. It may take 2 weeks or more before you hear from someone in our volunteer organization.
Our adoption guidelines are stated preceeding the application page. Please read them carefully. Any transportation expenses are the full responsibility of the adopter. Suggested adoption donation:
For healthy dogs up to two years of age: $350-$450 For healthy dogs between the ages of two and six:$ 250-$350 For healthy dogs between the ages of six and nine: $150-$250 Geriatric or "special needs" dogs: donation is set on a case-by-case basis
Not all our Papillons are listed on the webpage.

Penny and Nickel came out of a Missouri puppy mill, and mill life is all they knew until they were rescued. No telling how many babies these poor girls were forced to produce during that time. Penny has come a long way since her rescue and is still gaining every day. Her coat is soft and shining and she is learning to trust and enjoy being touched and held. She wants to play but isn't sure yet how to do that. Only lately has she begun to use the doggie beds, but still goes to her crate when she is feeling insecure and scared. Penny is a beautiful little girl with very large ears. She is really a pretty quiet dog, but is interested in what is going on around her. Penny and Nickel love each other and have been through so much togeather, it would be a shame to split them up. Please find a place in your heart for both of them togeather. They will both need someone who will continue working with them to gain trust and to teach them what it is to be a beloved member of a family.
