Meet sweet Angel!!
Poor Angel was very scared and feeling lost and was not sure how she lost her way and what was going to happen to her. A few local boys came to our foster mom's house with Angel and told her that the local pastor asked them to bring her there, knowing she could never turn her away. No one wanted this poor thing, so our wonderful foster mom took her in. She had a guardian angel in the pastor who was looking out for her best interests.
Unfortunately, shortly after arriving to our fosters home Angel became critically ill, but she is truly a miracle pup who truly "beat the odds". Had it not been for the incredible care that our foster mom gave her along with the thousands of dollars spent in veterinary expenses to fight for her "at all costs", she would have never survived.
After months of keeping her in quarantine, she has finally received his veterinary clearance to go to an adoptive home. We hope families will be willing to reward her incredible courage and strength and overlook the fact that she is no longer a "little puppy".
Angel is now six months old and weighs about 30 pounds.
Could you be her next guardian angel??
Please consider giving her a loving home she so deserves after all she has been through in her short life. You will not regret it!.

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 (RI & 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.
