This is Piggy
Piggy is a pit bull mix. She is about 1-2 yrs. old, spayed and heartworm negative.
She weighs about 40-45 lbs. Piggy is great and loving with people but has a problem some times with other dogs. Therefore, she would need to be an only dog.
She is good in a crate, in the house and is no trouble in any other way. Please consider giving her a loving home. Updated photos coming soon!! Adoption fee: $250.00
Adoption coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org
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 (vaccinations, spaying/neutering -when age appropriate- heartworm testing/treatment when necessary and includes transportation up to New England $125.00 per dog.
UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED, ALL OF OUR DOGS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF RHODE ISLAND BOARDED EITHER PRIVATE FOSTER HOMES OR TRAINING FACILITIES. If a dog is listed as ""local, he /she is at one of our foster homes in New England.
PAWS of New England is not shelter but a rescue and thus is not funded by any city or state organization - we rely solely on the donations of our adopters to help defray the costs associated with saving these precious lives.
We are 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 dog 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 him/her. 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.
