Meet adorable Rhett!
Rhett is a male lab mix puppy, who is approximately 8-10 months old and 40 pounds as of October 2012.
Poor Rhett had ended up in a high kill shelter in TN, and one of our volunteers just loved him and wanted to save him. He is currently in a foster home with other dogs of all sizes and cats and does great with them all! He is also good with his foster mom's young relatives, ages 5 and 12. Rhett is an energetic puppy with a sweet, happy go lucky personality.
Rhett is good in a car and is learning house manners and working on walking on a leash. His foster mom has also been working on housetraining and he is also crate trained.
Rhett is neutered, up to date on all his vaccines, microchipped and is heartworm negative.
Please consider adding Rhett to your family, and giving him a forever home. He would be an excellent companion.
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.
