New England Foster Mom update (2/14/13):

Hi! I'm Pumpkin. I am new to the area and am hoping to find a wonderful family to show me all the great things New England has to offer.

I'm a very shy, but sweet girl. I need someone to have patience with me and show me that the world isn't such a scary place.

I have a really nice foster brother who is showing me the ropes. I even like my two foster kitty siblings. They are good about giving me space and I respect them back.

I love my food. Who doesn't, right? I could stand to lose a few pounds, but I'm working on that.

I'm still nervous about being taken for walks. I am working on getting outside and sniffing the cool, fresh air. Right now, I am most comfortable in my crate... Although I do like to come out and explore sometimes. Once I am comfortable, I will be your best friend. I promise I'm trying to be brave and I am making progress everyday! My foster mom is so proud of me!

Make sure to check out the blog my foster mom started for me! Pretty cool, right?!

Prior Bio:

Meet Pumpkin! Such a quiet beautiful girl!

Pumpkin is a golden mix that is about 2 years old and weighs about 40-45 pounds....such a great size!

She was found in a corn field with 2 of her pups (Okra and Squash, who are listed). She was a great mama! Her foster mom says that she is a very, very sweet but shy girl. However, once she gets to know you, she will be your best bud. She gets along with all.

Unfortunately, when Pumpkin was spayed, she was found to have heartworm, but we are going to get her treated as soon as possible and expect her to make a full recovery.

Please consider adding Pumpkin to your family, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are simply the best!!

Donation: $450 (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.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Pumpkin (LOCAL 1/26), a Barrington Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog dog from a breeder in Barrington.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barrington already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Barrington breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog breeders who help with Golden Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
