**Now in New England**
Here's Rosalee meeting her new canine foster siblings - as you can see she instantly liked them and being around them.
This girl has a very prolonged story - rescued from Memphis Animal Shelter by a group in Tennessee who eventually was investigated for animal cruelty - too many dogs without medical care etc - we asked if we could take this girl as she was known to have some medical issues requiring attention that had not been met - recently able to get her, we moved her right here to New England to have one of our vets take care of what we thought was a prolapsed rectum but fortunately our vet sees no sign of this* Appointments are set up and we will get this girl into tip top shape ASAP.
Rosalee (Rosie) is the happiest, friendliest girl in town! She met 6 foster siblings a few weeks ago, and was instantly BFFs with all of them. She met another new one today and is delighted to find another wrestle buddy! She loves going to doggie daycare and we're told she does fabulous there. She rides great in the car, loves to go for walks, but is most happy when she's with her people and doggie friends just running around and having fun with her toys.
Rosie would love a home where she could play with another doggie friend or two, or maybe go to doggie daycare to get her playtime in. She's housetrained, prefers a doggie bed to the crate so is allowed to roam free.

Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you're interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it's still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: 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, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). 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.
Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if 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 abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
