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 Stevie (GA) age 12
Status: Available for Sponsorship
Color: Red Sable and White
Current Size: 10 Pounds
Current Age: 15 Years 2 Months (best estimate)
We call this precious little boy Steve Wonder! He has only one eye and that one is supposed to have only a small vision area, but Stevie is a WONDER because he sees where he is going and doesn't slow down.
Stevie is a WONDER because his early life in a puppy mill must have been Hell, and yet he is a happy loving little guy with every body he meets.
Best of all, Stevie is a WONDER because he loves to sing along with us when we all join in with a howl!
Stevie was adopted and lived with a lady that loved him very much, but unfortunately she became very ill and went from hospital to extra care living. So now Stevie is home at the Dog House where we absolutely adore him. But Stevie is still wondering, "Where is my very own family?' He wants his own loving companion and a lap to cuddle on again.
Stevie is a very healthy senior that has so much more to give. Do you know someone who needs Stevie? He is unique.
