Meet sweet, precious Arabella:
I was found in my owner’s yard at the end of a chain, malnourished and so weak I could barely walk. I was surrendered to the ACO along with my baby girl who didn’t even have the strength to hold her head up (Betsy – also listed on PAWS). I’m not quite sure of our breed but I am a gorgeous tricolor beagle/harrier hound mix with the most adorable face and pretty eyes. I am full grown and a medium size dog. If you see my before and after pictures, you can see how well we are doing now.
We are living in a wonderful foster home with other doggy friends and cats, sleeping in my foster’s mom bed, and getting all the food we want. I am up to 30 pounds and fit and trim. I am about 2 years old. I feel great, love to run and play with my friends, like to play fetch with a tennis ball; come nighttime, I curl up in a ball alongside one of my friends or at the foot of my mom’s bed and sleep all night. I do not get on the furniture and I am not destructive in any way in the house or outside. I have not had even one accident in the house. I do like to follow my mom around and when outside, I stick close to the house/yard. I am trained to the invisible fence. I am friendly with all dogs, comfortable meeting new people, do well on a leash but I’m still learning about walking on a lead, not food aggressive (will share bowl with other dogs), and housetrained. My mom says I am a medium level activity dog and I’m great with children as well. I listen well and I’m eager to learn. If you are looking for a family dog or a new addition, I might just be the one for you.
I have been spayed, up to date on vaccines, heartworm negative (on preventive), and microchipped.
I am ready for my forever home. Please consider adopting me. I will make you very happy and I deserve a better life than what I have before PAWS rescued me.

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.
Rescue Group Info...
PAWS is comprised of a small group of volunteers from New England and Tennessee trying to reduce the euthanization rate (previously 90%) at the Tipton County Animal Control shelter in Brighton, Tennessee. This shelter is forced to euthanize thousands of animals each year due to irresponsible pet owners that do not spay/ neuter their dogs in the area. Millions of dogs in America are euthanized each year due to lack of space and lack of funding to try and find them better homes.
Our mission is to save as many animals as possible, removing them from the shelter, having their veterinary needs met prior to traveling and then finding them loving homes throughout New England. We do this only with the assistance of many people volunteering their time by going to the shelter, transporting the dogs to the vet, fostering dogs who need special care, and arranging for their new and happy homes in this area. Most importantly, we cannot do any of this without those people willing to open their homes and hearts to these lovely creatures.
All of our dogs are located either in foster homes in New England or Tennessee/Missouri. Please email our volunteers to ask about the specific pet that you are interested in.

Puppies under the age of 4 months will not be spayed/neutered prior to adoption upon advice of our veterinarians; small dog breeds may not be altered prior to six months if size prohibitive. Paw New England has a spay/neuter program in place with partner vets or if adopter chooses veterinarian of their own choice, reimbursement of $60.00 provided to adopter.
