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 Emma (in VA)
Current Age: 9 Years 3 Months (best estimate)
Oh my, I am in a Dilemma, and my name is Emma. I am about 9 years old and I have been the princess of my household, and poof; all of a sudden my mother and father had to give me away. What is a princess to do? Well, just like in all those romance books, I have been sent to live in this orphanage with these hoodlums and I refuse to talk to them. I have chosen my blue chair to sit on and that is where I will stay until my new family comes to get me. I am very good on a leash and am very good about eating dinner and treats and good at going outside when I need to, like princesses do. I sometimes will tell you off if you are doing things I don’t like, but that is my royal blood you know. So if you would love to meet me come and see me in my blue throne and get me out of this orphanage with the hoodlums just let the servants know. I am waiting. Please get here soon.
