Meet Rocky! Isn't he gorgous?? We think so.
One of our wonderful volunteers took in Rocky after she learned that Rocky's owner surrendered him to an animal shelter because they were having personal problems and could not keep him. She acted quickly, as she was told he would be put to sleep because they were not going to keep him at the animal shelter.
Rocky is neutered and is now up to date on his vaccinations. He is crate trained, good with dogs and kids and of course he likes to sleep in the bed with his people, as all our foster mom's dogs do!
He loves to play with the other dogs at his foster mom's home.
Rocky is very sweet and loving, listens and minds well. The vet said Rocky is 1 year old and he weighs 52 lbs.
Please consider giving Rocky a loving home that he SO deserves. You will not regret it!
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are just the best!!
Donation: $300.00 (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 adopters.
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.
