Meet Diamond Lil! We were asked by Companion Animal Welfare vets in Warwick RI, our wonderful partner vet, if we would take this dog if the owner surrendered her to them – she wanted to euthanize and they felt strongly this should not happen – so now she’s a Paws NE family member.

Diamond is 9 but don't tell her that! She's smart, happy, friendly and athletic. She loves to explore and is fascinated with every new dog and person she meets, greeting all with a smile. She's fostering with several other dogs of all ages and sizes and it's like she's known them forever. Diamond is completely housetrained and trusted throughout as she's not interested in chewing or destroying anything. She's very eager to please and just wants to be near her people.

Diamond has had some ongoing skin issues which we think is food related. She’s now on a healthy home-cooked diet w/no pizza or table scraps for this girl! Her skin looks amazing, her symptoms greatly reduced and with continued diligence we're hoping the allergies will be a thing of the past! Although not thrilled she didn’t protest at bath time, just stood there patiently while the organic potions worked their magic.

Diamond deserves a forever family that will give her the love and attention she craves; she has endless kisses and snuggles to go around.

Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - we do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue - we have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, Arkansas) and New England. You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.

Visit our website below for an adoption application and answers to your most “Frequently Asked Questions:

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (vaccinations, spaying/neutering (when age appropriate), heartworm testing/treatment when necessary,

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher - we appreciate your understanding that your dog will help others in need.

All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.

Paws New England dogs are boarded in private fosters home/training facilities and are not housed in a central facility; these accommodations are located throughout New England and are not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island.

Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.


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.
