Now Fostering in New England!!

There is something really special about Suzy-Q. Her foster mom says she's been an absolute delight to have in her home. She arrived to PAWS from one of our rescue partners after being found as a stray. She walked up the driveway of the rescue along with two other male companions. These smart dogs went to the right place!

Suzy is one of the sweetest and most gentle dogs her foster mom has ever met. She's quiet and reserved indoors but loves to run and play outside with her canine foster siblings. She can be a little shy when meeting new people, but quickly warms up and happy to receive some good ear rubs.

**Update 10/22:
Suzi-Q is such a love.! She is incredibly sweet and we have not witnessed any aggression from her. She was quite shy when she arrived but is coming out of her shell more and more everyday, looking for attention and affection. She still likes to rest occasionally in her crate throughout the day, as we have a puppy who loves to constantly play. I wouldn’t say it's 100% necessary for her to go to a forever home with another dog, but I do think it would definitely be beneficial as she looks to my dog for cues. I have two boys, a sixteen and thirteen year old and she loves sitting by them. She has good manners in the sense that she hasn't barked in the house, she doesn't jump up on you, and has not once gone potty in the house or crate!!! She also loves walks and does well on her leash. Her adoptive family will have to be patient with her (as she is shy at first), but it won’t take long for them to fall in love with her!

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.
