I used a 3" galvanized starter collar that I bought at the hardware store.

I bought a cheap dryer vent that does not have a flapper in it and has a plastic hood with a removable plastic grid with 3/8 x 3/8 holes in it. I would not use window screen because it can ice up because of the small holes. When winter finally sets in I even remove the plastic grid from mine just in case. When I shut my stove down for the year I reinstall the plastic grid with a plastic sandwich bag on it to keep the bees and bugs out during the summer.
