About New England Puppy Rescue 

Welcome to New England Puppy Rescue, a compassionate organization committed to saving the lives of neglected and unwanted puppies, regardless of zip code, abandoned in high-kill shelters or surrendered by owners. Our mission is clear: provide these innocent beings with the love and veterinary care they need and deserve and secure them loving, forever homes.

At the heart of our dedication lies a focus on under-aged and orphaned puppies, where we employ our comprehensive young puppy protocol to ensure their health, well-being, and socialization for a successful start in new homes. New England Puppy Rescue stands as a beacon of hope for a more promising tomorrow in a world where some puppies lack a voice, a chance, or even a happy memory.

We are proud to be an integral part of our community, working collaboratively with local veterinary clinics, generous businesses, and community residents. Their support enables us to continue our mission of improving the lives of deserving puppies. New England Puppy Rescue goes beyond being just a group of dog lovers; we serve as a lifeline for those in need. Our commitment is underscored by our dedication to providing the best knowledge and care in our rescue efforts, ensuring that each puppy receives the exceptional care they deserve.

Our foster-based approach distinguishes us, as NEPR dogs eat, sleep, and live in Connecticut foster homes until they find their forever families. This model allows us to understand each puppy, fostering balanced socialization in a home setting to make optimal matches with loving homes, ensuring a lifetime of mutual affection.
