It's hard not to fall in love with Shanley! Whether it's his awesome floppy ears, his handsome face or his goofy personality, we all love Shanley!

Shanley is a handsome 7 year old coonhound mix who was saved from a high volume shelter in TN. He was in an awful state when he joined PAWS and it was obvious he lived a life of neglect. He has since joined a foster home where he is thriving!

Don't let his age fool you! This boy is active and loves loves loves to play and frolic in the snow. He loves his food puzzle and is happy to entertain himself with it until the treats run out! We'd love to see him join a family who can give him the playtime & exercise that he loves. While in TN he was not destructive with toys or bedding and did great using the doggy door. Sometimes his hound nose gets the best of him and he can sniff out those tasty treats. Shan however does not like to be separated from his family or doggie pals so he is not confined to his crates.

Shanley loves playing with his canine friends and would do best with another dog who also enjoys playing...endlessly!

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.
