Fostering in New England!

Honey was picked up by the local animal control in Jonesboro, Arkansas. She is a very sweet and very active girl. She is young and has lots of energy, which caused her to bark a lot in the kennels. She is doing very well in her foster home now that she has an outlet for all that energy.

Honey gets along great with other dogs and would love a canine sibling to play with. Her foster home is working on house training and she is doing very well. She does great in a crate. Honey loves to play fetch, although she is still learning to bring the ball back. She loves all people and will do great with kids. She still jumps up on people, so supervision with small kids is recommended. She is very smart and sweet. Honey will make a great addition to any family!

Update from her foster Mom 10-15-2016: Honey is still adapting to the family cat, but just curious more than anything. She is doing so well with the kids, they are constantly running with her. She is so gentle with them too! Honey is such a cuddly pup, and wants nothing more than to be loved! It's hard to get a good picture of her, because she is constantly on the go. We are also working on some simple commands with her, sit, stay, lay down, etc.

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.
