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.
About ~ Sanctuary Maddy (age 11.3 yrs) in GA
Status: Available for Sponsorship
General Color: Black with White
Current Size: 10.7 Pounds
Current Age: 12 Years 8 Months (best estimate)
Maddy is such a quiet little girl. She loves to be next to her person, basking in the sun or napping while you're reading a good book. We think she would be a great companion for a retired lady or couple - someone who would tell her she is loved all the time. Maddy wants to go outside when necessary - she just needs a little help with someone to open the door!
Maddy has had some minor seizures so we are treating her with an inexpensive medicine that seems to be controlling them well. It is necessary to be sure she gets her pill 3 times a day.
Maddy is hoping to spend her life with someone who sees how beautiful she is. Please come to Marietta GA to meet her.
