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
Lacey - Lacey – I am an energetic young 9 yo female Papillon mix. I was adopted by a Mommy from Papillon 911 Rescue and Adoption but unexpectedly my Mommy passed away. I tried to take very good care of her but she never woke back up. I like to keep everyone aware of what is going on in our house. Right now I live with 9 other small dogs and will not let newbies in the house unless my foster mother tells me it is OK. She seems to let everyone come in and it just burns me up. I can play fetch with you and I can play fetch by myself too. It is one of my many talents. I am not the most snuggly, but I will love to sit next to you on your chair or sofa and make you feel safe and loved. I will pay attention to you all the time. I love to hear your voice speak to me in very kind words. I am very intelligent and would like to be in a much smaller pack than this group of 10. I would like to have a maybe one other doggy friend or maybe not. I am fine with being an only dog. I like to keep things rolling along in my household. I live in Richmond, VA and you must come and see me if you want to adopt me. I am worth it. I am waiting for you. In my pictures there are two videos of my playing with the toy by myself if you want to see. https://www.pap911rescue.org/ (I had to remove the videos they are too large)
