Thank you for your interest in Vizsla Rescue!
The Vizsla Club of Central New England Rescue works with the national club, the VCA, to help vizslas who need to be rehomed. We take in approximately 12 dogs yearly. We do our best to evaluate every dog through temperament tests and foster care in an attempt to match each dog with the right applicant.
Application and Process:
We have a multi-step adoption screening process including this application, a phone interview and a home visit.
An adoption fee of $350 is required at the time of adoption. This fee helps to defray the costs of veterinary care and foster care expenses. The fee is lowered to $200 for dogs over 7 yrs of age.
