About The Student Rescue Project

The Student Rescue Project, Inc. is a Vermont-based 501(c)(3) corporation comprised of a board of directors and three staff members. With dog-rescue as our platform, students gain an understanding of issues surrounding animal overpopulation, neglect and abandonment and are empowered with skills, knowledge and understanding to become helpers. The community we’ve built around our volunteers, both young and old, has become a robust source for dogs in need and our human partners who help them. Our adoption, volunteer and education center, Puppy Junction, is located at 101 Maple Street in White River Junction, VT. General inquiries can be sent to info@studentrescueproject.org.

2018 Hanover High School Dog Rescue Service Trip participants, Caitlin, Ian and Emily, take puppies to the veterinarian in Puerto Rico to get updated vaccinations and health paperwork for travel. The rules for traveling back to the US with rescued pets are different in other countries and territories and it’s vital to understand these procedures for a safe and successful rescue.

Students from Hanover High School in New Hampshire listen to a first hand account of a rescuer’s experience during Hurricane Maria. They spent the day helping her install a perimeter fence to make a pen for her many foster and personal dogs.

The Student Rescue Project has sponsored the participation of veterinarians and non-medical staff at the many Spayathon for Puerto Rico events. Since 2018, over 33,000 dogs and cats have been sterilized as a result of this incredible, collaborative effort between animal welfare organizations.
