Lynnette (LOCAL 12/22)'s Info...
|Breed:||Labrador Retriever Mix||Color:||Black||Age:||Puppy|
|Size:||Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)||Sex:||Female|
Lynnette and Annie (also available for adoption) are just too cute for words. Adorable pair that do NOT have to be adopted together. We would LOVE that, but it is not required.
Lynnette and Annie are black lab mixes and are siblings. Their brother Stryker is also listed and available for adoption. They are now approx. 13 weeks of age on 1/3/2013.
Both girls are very sweet and like to cuddle. Potty training is a work in progress. They like to curl up in the bottom of a cat tree that their foster mom has on her back porch.
Both girls are good with cats, other dogs and even small children. Their first foster home in TN had kids, cats, dogs, you name it; currently fostering with other dogs and attending daycare with many dogs and having a blast.
Lynnette and Annie are typical puppies and full of energy.
Please consider adding Lynnette and/or Annie to your family. They will NOT disappoint you and both are waiting for their forever homes.
Donation: $450.00 each puppy (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
These girls are not spayed as yet as they are not 6 months of age which is when our vets recommend altering; we participate in several plans for adopters and will reimburse a portion of the surgical charge.
An application does not mean you are required to adopt – it just lets us know you are seriously considering this dog for adoption.
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)
Interested in adopting this wonderful dog? Please visit our website and complete an online adoption application.
The adoption donation covers all pre-adoption vet costs (general health exam, vaccinations, heartworm testing/treatment when necessary)
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.
