Feather (LOCAL 1/5/13)'s Story...
Meet Feather!

Feather is a sweet, shy quiet Boston Terrier girl that was rescued with her pup, Buggy (also listed) from a horrific home situation. Both her and her pup were very emaciated when they were first brought to our MO fosters home.

They are now looking and feeling much better. Feather weighs about 20-25 pounds and is about 3-4 years old. Even though she is quiet, she is very loving. She likes her crate and is crate trained. She would make a wonderful addition to any home.

Feather was spayed and vaccinated and was found to have heartworm. We are scheduling her heartworm treatment shortly and expect her to make a full recovery.

Please consider giving Feather a loving home she so deserves.

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

Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable)

Please complete an online application – we respond to applications MUCH QUICKER than we do email inquiries which are quite difficult at times given the number that we receive – don’t miss out on this dog – complete an application -http://www.pawsnewengland.com/adoption-form/

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 has 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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Feather (LOCAL 1/5/13), a Barrington Boston Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Boston Terrier for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Boston Terrier 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 Boston Terrier breeders who help with Boston Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
