I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Patch (JA)'s Story...
For more information about this dog, please contact his/her adoption coordinator:
Please send inquiries to this email address and not the general info email.
A name that suits him well:))
Patch is a lab/terrier mix, about 1-2 years old, neutered, HW neg and about 60 pounds. His first owner could not take good care of him anymore and asked our MO foster if she would take him in to keep him out of a shelter. Of course, she said yes.
Patch is a great dog that gets along with all. He is easy going and quite independent and likes to meander about outside, though he does enjoy being in the house too. He is very obedient and would make a great companion!
Please consider giving this guy a nice home as he had already been through losing his first known home and owner.
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are the best!.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)

Paws New England as recently joined VCA Animal Hospitals in a program providing new adopters with a certificate for an initial health exam at a VCA Hospital and treatment of certain conditions free of charges for the first 5 days. This is a great program and PAWS is thrilled to be participating in for our adopter
QUARANTINE (RHODE ISLAND & MASSACHUSETTS)
Due to new regulations put forth, as of 6/1/2012, all dogs traveling from TN, MO, or GA [or other non-contiguous states] with a final home in Rhode Island or Massachusetts will be quarantined for a period of 5 days; dogs will arrive on Saturday, spend 5 days in quarantine, be examined by veterinarian, and released to adopters on the following Friday/Saturday. A health certificate fee of $25.00 will be required at the time of dog pickup..
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary).
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.
