Pumpkin is a 3 year old female shepherd mix. Pumpkin and her mom Lady are both listed with PAWS. Lady and Pumpkin were tied up at an abandoned home in rural MS and come winter time, they had no protection from the harsh winter. A kind neighbor has been giving them food and water for several weeks after their owners had moved away. After posting their fate on Facebook, PAWS took them into foster care.
Pumpkin is great with other dogs and is fine with cats. It would be great if Lady and Pumpkin could be adopted together since they have been together all of Pumpkin's life. However, they can be adopted separately if necessary. If you are looking for two great dogs, this might be the pair for you.
Pumpkin is spayed, up to date on vaccines, microchipped and Heartworm negative.
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. In certain instances, a $75.00 quarantine fee will be applicable. 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.
