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 Faith (in VA)
Status: Available for Sponsorship
Current Size: 6 Pounds
Current Age: 9 Years 9 Months (best estimate)
Faith is a Chi Mix or possibly a full Chi. She is a cute little cobby girl that is only interested in one person. That is it, one person for her. She can handle other small animals as long as they do not try to share her doggy bed. It is best she eat in a crate she can be food aggressive. She was dumped at a shelter and no other rescue would take her, when they saw the huge tumor on her foot. She had surgery to remove the tumor and lost her 2 middle toes and large pad associated with those toes. So now she has the permanent “rock and roll” or “rock on” hand signal. She does just fine post surgically. Faith enjoys sitting on the arm rest of foster Moms sofa but is not happy with the other dogs try to sit on her foster Mom’s lap. So, she removes herself after some minor grumbling. She is a funny little girl and thinks the world should revolve around her, just like all queens think. She does not like sharing the spotlight with the other 10 dogs at her foster Mother’s home. She wants her Queen-dom to be smaller, one or two Chi savvy adults and maybe one other small dog that can deal with her antics. Faith lives in Richmond, VA and you must come and meet her, if you want to adopt her. Faith will not be adopted into a home with children.
