What we do

We are a small rescue, dependent on volunteers and foster homes.  Several times a year, we rescue dogs from puppy mills in Ohio.  Many of these dogs are purebred dogs who have lived their lives in cages.  We are forever surprised by their resilience and ability to transition to being happy dogs despite how poorly they have been treated by humans. Throughout the year, we get dogs and cats from the high-kill shelters in the south. CVCR will also accept into rescue most puppy/dog who is living with an owner who can no longer supply care.

Regardless of age or medical condition, we will provide them love, food, shelter, human companionship, medical care, and spay-neuter services through local veterinarians until permanent placement is secured into a prescreened, loving home.

Why We Do It


Callie was found malnourished and abandoned with her puppies in Laurel, Mississippi in November of 2020. Thanks to our rescue and transport partners along the way, she and her babies made it to us in Vermont and found a loving foster home right away until she found her forever home. She now gets to be a normal dog and live the high-quality life that every dog deserves. And all her puppies found wonderful homes, as well!

“We are so grateful for all that CVCR has done for us and Callie. We were not even looking for a dog at the time, but now we can’t imagine our life without her. She brings us so much joy and truly radiates happiness. She is the sweetest dog, and every person she meets on the street is her new best friend. We are always entertained by her surgical-like precision in removing squeakers from toys. Thank you so much to Tammy and all involved for rescuing our best friend.”
