Davey has a very special name- he's named after the son of a rescuer who passed away this summer - her friend, also a rescuer, knew that naming a rescue after her son would make Tracy smile, even if just for a few minutes and it did. So in honor of a woman who works hard to find stray dogs homes, we want the best home for this handsome boy.

Found living under a trailer in Memphis, Davey was discovered by someone in his neighborhood who happened to be a veterinary technician. What luck! Once his rescuer finally got Davey out from under the trailer, she promptly started working on getting all his vetting done. Davey is now neutered and up to date on vaccines. He tested positive for heartworm, but was treated in early September, and is now ready for his new life to begin.

Well now you may be asking - what is Davey like? Does he like other dogs? You bet he does!

**Update 10/23
Davey is doing great living with 2 other black lab dogs around the same size as him. He has no issues with biting or petting and is a snugglebug. He has lots of energy around our 2 dogs so we would recommend an adopter with an active lifestyle. He is house and crate trained! He doesn't pull on the leash and loves walks.

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.

Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.

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.
