Valery is a Coonhound mix who i s approximately 3 years old. A volunteer saw someone stop along the country highway and toss the little brown and red pup out of a car and drive away. She was about 8-9 months old at the time. They took her home and she lived in the main house with the family and house dogs, until she was about 2, so she's had some house training. She has since been in a kennel and is on the search for a forever home!

Update 1.16.17: Now fostering in New England!

Valery arrived in New England very scared & timid, wondering what the heck was going on. She landed in a foster home with 7 other dogs and BAM! She has a whole bunch of new friends that she loves and gets along great with all. She is starting to figure out that life is pretty good, she can go outside and run around, come back in when she wants to, sleeps wherever she feels like sleeping and has one particular bestie who is showing her the ropes! Valery is a quiet girl, knows her name and several commands, and is very well behaved. She tolerates the shenanigans of her younger foster pals, even when annoyed let's them continue til someone else breaks it up. She is not food or toy aggressive, not interested in tearing up the place, and is doing fantastic on re-learning her housetraining.
Any family would be very lucky to have Valery be a part of it!

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.
