Fostering in New England!!

Cooper Aroo is as sweet and gentle as they come. You won’t find a more loving soul! He joins PAWS from our partner shelter in TN after being surrendered by his owners. We think this handsome boy deserved better than that and cannot wait to find him a special forever family that will cherish him.

We do not know Cooper's past, but his body tells a not so pretty story. PAWS has been working with specialized vets to get him back on track. His improvement has been amazing thus far and he has become the favorite of everyone who has met him.

Cooper will not ask for much during his retirement years. A soft bed (or even better, a couch or human bed), leisurely walks (he is great on a leash) and of course, ear and belly rubs, as needed.
In return, he will be your big gentle ole man best friend (and shadow).
He is the perfect gentleman in the house and gets along with every human and canine he meets!

Cooper does require medication, most of which will be lifelong, including allergy shots, hypothyroid pills, ear and eye drops, and medicated baths. He is so cooperative with everything!!!

Cooper just oozes loves. All is takes is just one look at you with his soulful eyes. You can see the appreciation that he has for everything that he is given and every loving touch that comes his way.

This sweet boy is ready to be the love of your life!

For more information about this particular dog, please email:

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.


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.

Puppies under the age of 4 months will not be spayed/neutered prior to adoption upon advice of our veterinarians; small dog breeds may not be altered prior to six months if size prohibitive.
