Update from New England foster mom (11/18/12):
Meet Handsome Peyton!
Peyton is a wonderful male shepherd/greyhound mix. Peyton is approximately 2-3 years old and is roughly 50 pounds. Peyton was rescued from a high kill shelter in Tennessee by a kind volunteer. Poor Peyton had been in the shelter for 2 months before he was rescued, and its a huge testament to his nice personality that he survived that long there. Peyton gets along well with other dogs and is great with people. Peyton rides well in the car and is very easy going. Peyton was heartworm positive and has been treated for heartworms and is now healthy and ready for his forever family.
Peyton is a huge love bug. He can either be a couch potato or an active playful puppy. He is good in a crate and is 100% housetrained.
His foster mom says he really has no bad habits. He does tend to pull on a leash a bit so he could use some training there. He would probably make a great jogging partner. Seems as though Peyton does not do well with cats so he is best suited for a home without cats.
Peyton is neutered, up to date on vaccines and microchipped. Please consider adding Peyton to your family, you will not be disappointed.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).

PET INSURANCE: 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. There are also numerous other pet insurance programs available to shelter animals.
QUARANTINE: Paws New England participates and abides by the quarantine rules and regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, RI.
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.
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.
