About Our Rescue Group:

Loving Paws was formed in 2005 as a result of a woman wanting to make a difference. She enlisted the help of friends and Loving Paws was born! Today we work to give our southern rescue pups a second chance. We ensure the mother (and sometimes) fathers dogs are spayed/neutered if we help place the pups. One of our goals is to educate the community on the benefits of spay/neuter for their own dogs. We do pull dogs from high kill shelters- sometimes just hours before their time is up. Many of the dogs that end up in the kill shelters is a result of people not wanting their pups.

Come Meet our Pets:

The pup/dog you have inquired about is still in a southern foster home.

Our Adoption Process:

Loving Paws Rescue mainly has foster homes in the southern states. Many northern rescues work closely with the southern rescue groups to bring up puppies and adults for adoptin in the New England States. The reason for this is the New England states have worked hard to pass great laws concerning spay/neuter. By passing these laws they there aren't as many "unwanted litters" in the New England States. There are several transport companies that bring southern rescue pups north to their new homes. Loving Paws utilizes P.E.T.S LLC ( you can check out their transport by visiting their website http://www.petsllc.org/index.php)

Although we search for New England foster homes, most of our adoptions are directly thru our website and itís not possible to arrange a meeting of the pup before adoption. This type of adoption doesn't work for everyone and we would be happy to put you in touch with some of our sister groups who have pups on site. The adoption fee covers all of the vet work that has been performed prior to adoption and the required vet check and health certificate for interstate stransport and transport fees. All of our pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated as age appropriate. If you are still interested in adopting from us, please email for an application. We have several adoption coordinators that process the applications and will contact you. We do ask that after completing and returning the application you contact your vet to let them know you are considering adopting and give them permission to give us a reference when we call.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
