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 Cooper (age 7) in GA
General Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
Current Size: 10 Pounds
Current Age: 10 Years 11 Months (best estimate)
Cooper is a beautiful little boy. He is pretty well socialized and fairly reliably house trained. He wants to be with his human and is always nearby. However, like most Papillons, Cooper is sure that he knows what is best and he will try to have his way if possible. We think he would be a treasure to someone who has the time to enjoy him and cuddle a lot. He loves to be brushed and admired.
Cooper is healthy. He has a type of luxated patella, but does not require surgery. Normal activities like walking and swimming are really good for him. He will make a wonderful companion. Like all toy dogs, Cooper should have a safe fenced yard. Please plan to visit with Cooper in Marietta, GA.
