Penny is an 8 month old female terrier mix puppy (as of 12/31/12). She is 30 pounds and was rescued from a high kill shelter in Tennessee. Penny is currently in a foster home with other dogs of all sizes and cats and she is wonderful with them all. She is also great with her foster mom's young relatives ages 5 and 12. Penny has the prettiest eyes. She adores her people and follows her foster mom around closely. Penny is working on house training and leash walking with her foster mom and is doing well with it.
Penny is microchipped, up to date on all vaccines, spayed and Heartworm negative. She is ready for her forever home.
Donation: $450.00 (includes $140.00 transport fee paid directly to USDA approved transport company where applicable).
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.
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.
