Hello, My name is Mryna.....

I have not really had an easy time in life. I gave birth to sooo many litters of puppies and wasn't properly cared for. Then I ended on a very bad list at the Memphis Animal Shelter when I was spotted in the back room by a rescuer, who just had to take me out of there. But I was a sick girl, and this small rescue were not able to provide me with the all the vet care I needed. When PAWS found out about me, they actually wanted me into their rescue!! I then went to New England, where I was examined and treated by many vets and specialists. I now feel the best I ever have!!

My foster mom says I am very laid back, have a very calm personality and I get along with everyone!! I am living peacefully with 4 dogs, I ask for little...some affection, being petted, having a warm bed (or maybe a couch or human bed:) and a belly rub now and then. I never experienced any of that before in my life. I am not a huge cuddler, and am quite independent, but I surely will let you know how much I appreciate you by being your forever loyal companion.

I am perfectly house trained and do not mind a crate or ex-pen, but I can also be trusted free in the house. I LOVE my kibble, any treats, stuffed marrow bones and bully sticks. I also get VERY excited when my foster takes me for walks and car rides. I am her #1 errand companion!!!


Myrna is an absolute doll! She wants nothing more than to love and be loved. This special senior deserves the forever home she never had, and PAWS has promised her just that...and more! She would do best in a calmer home with an adopter ready to continue to give her love and TLC she is truly worthy of.

Will you be the special person to step up and give this mama a loving new home?

About Our Rescue Group...

PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.

Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.
