Update from Foster Mom & Dad in Maine (2/16/13):
Chelsea has been with us a few months now in Maine and has adjusted to her surroundings. We have found her to be very affectionate and devoted. As I write this update, she is nestled at my feet snoring away contentedly. When she first arrived here in Maine she had no idea what to make of the snow and would even flip on her back like a dead bug when her feet had enough of that awful cold stuff so we would carry her in! Now she plows through the snow with gusto like a natural born New Englander.
Chelsea is totally housebroken. She has not had a single accident in the house. Chelsea does well on a leash when we let her out and is prompt with her "business". Her foster parents are very appreciative of this, especially during these cold months!
Chelsea is a good girl. Chelsea loves people and loves to play. Chelsea is still quite puppy-like and brings an energetic spirit to our home. Her favorite toys include a tennis ball, chewies, an old slipper and bones.
Chelsea is going to make someone a wonderful friend and companion. She has so much love to give and is so eager to please. Please consider making Chelsea the newest member of your family. She will NOT disappoint you.
Chelsea is a sweet loving dog, in spite of what she has been through. She was found next to a dumpster with her ears crudley cut and she was left to die, except an awesome lady saw her, picked her up, and loved her the best she knew how. The nice lady did the best she could trying to keep Chelsea nourished and healthy. Chelsea's legs were weak and she shook when she stood up, and had a bad bacterial infection. She sought help and PAWS New England stepped in and rescued Chelsea.
Chelsea is blossoming into a beautiful, active, puppy-like dog, enjoying the life she never got to experience as a puppy. She doesn't know what to do first. Her legs are strong and she has regained her health and is a friendly dog and gets along well with her other foster family members (both dogs and humans). Chelsea never meets a stranger and loves her walks. She also enjoys basking in the sun and the great outdoors.
Chelsea loves to play with her toys and a tennis ball. She loves to wear her sweaters and coats. All she needs now, is a family to show the love and care that she deserved when she first came into the world.
Please consider adopting Chelsea. This sweet girl deserves her own forever home.
Chelsea is spayed, microchipped, up to date on her vaccines and is heartworm negative.

Interested in adopting this fantastic canine? Please visit our website and complete an online application – we respond much quicker to applications than to emails as we receive a voluminous amount of email each day and it’s impossible to respond to all of them in a timely manner even though we try.
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
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.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company)
