All Breed Rescue is Moving!
Our new address will be 491 Industrial Avenue, Williston, VT 05495

We are very excited to announce we have closed on a new building and are starting the fit-up for our new pups. The Shelter will be conveniently located in Williston, VT and has 4600 square feet for our pups. We need a lot of help to complete the move. We have the fit-up plans and need volunteers willing to paint, clean, seal floors, carpenters and move kennels. We are also starting a building campaign to raise funds to make the space nice for for our pups. Please consider donating to this fund. We will be adding a laundry room, sealed floors, tiled floors, fencing for at least 3 or 4 outside play areas, an indoor play area, small rooms for the pups needs. If you are able to help, please donate here or email us to drop by donations or volunteer.

Here is the list of items we need to buy, get donated and install:
  • Clean, prep and seal 2600 square feet of warehouse floor
  • Mop Station  - utility sink, mop sink, faucets, hoses, mop hangers, mop heads
  • 2 Gas Dryers 
  • Refridgerators (one large, one small)
  • Fencing for 4-5 play areas
  • Air Conditioner compressor (we love to dream, the building is piped for central air, but the compressor is gone
