Update from foster mom (12/12/12):
Looking for a sweet, mellow adorable lab (mix)? Meet Curly!
He is about 3 years old and weighs about 55 pounds. His foster mom reports he's the best of both worlds....For you active folks, he loves his walks and hikes (great on leash!) and once inside he loves to curl up on a couch or bed.
He is completely housebroken, ignores cats and has been looking for his forever home for a LONG time! He would do best in a quiet household; Curly is a dog that we feel would do well with children older than 12. He likes his space and we think he would be fine in a home where the kids are old enough to recognize when he needs some down/alone time.
When Curly first arrived at his foster home, he was quite shy and timid. He has made some great strides, he needs another dog in the household to show him it's okay to be a dog; another low/medium energy dog in the household would be the best type of "leader dog" to be an example for Curly.
He could use some basic obedience training, but is a very smart boy who would be a quick learner. Please give Curly a home that he can call his very own -- one that will cherish him his whole life! Please if you have any questions about Curly, do not hesitate to email his fosters at the above addresses. Curly is a very sweet dog and we want him to find the fur-ever home he so deserves and has waited for!
Curly is neutered, current on all vaccines, heartworm negative and on monthly heartworm prevention.

Donation: $350.00 inclusive of transport costs. (Please click on the "donate" button to make your donation at the end of this bio).
Unless otherwise stated (LOCAL), all of our dogs are located outside of Rhode Island boarded either at one of our vet clinics or in foster care. If a dog is listed as "local," he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
PAWS NE is often asked, "Why would you charge "so much" for a rescue pet? Why not just place it in a good home?" The answer is because we need adopters who are willing to support all rescue pets, not just the dog they adopt. A young, healthy dog might cost us $150-400 in (discounted) vet care, and many people will want to adopt it. An older one with health issues can easily cost $500-1500 in veterinary expenses, and it may require months of foster care for rehabilitation; yet we can only ask a minimal adoption fee, and it may be a long time until anyone comes forward to adopt it. Fees from the younger, more adoptable dogs help offset the cost of caring for the others. Most of our dogs have a sad story to tell, and some have suffered through years of neglect or abuse. We hope that you too are willing to give an opportunity for a better life to ALL of our dogs by supporting them through adoption fees. Without these funds, our rescue efforts would not be possible.
ALL KNOWN INFORMATION IS LISTED HERE. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Please click on the "Donate" button below to make your adoption donation. If you can not adopt at this time, but would like to support the mission of PAWS New England, we would be endlessly grateful for your donation. PAWS relies entirely on donations and grants to maintain our operating budget. Without the generosity of people like you, we would not be able to save dogs like the one pictured above. Thank you for your support!
Rescue Group Info...
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.
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.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
Interested in adopting this wonderful dog? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
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. Paw New England has a spay/neuter program in place with partner vets or if adopter chooses veterinarian of their own choice, reimbursement of $60.00 provided to adopter.
