Meet Toto! Not sure why the shelter staff named him that, but we will take it!
Toto was rescued by our MO foster on the day he was to be PTS because of overcrowding at a local pound. The workers pleaded with her to take him since he was handsome and well behaved. He is a lab/shep mix about 10 months old (as of 1/2013) and he weighs 40-45 pounds...such a great size!!
Toto is a good boy who loves his crate. He behaves well in our foster moms home. He is a bit timid at first, but once he is comfortable, he is just fine. He gets along with all the other dogs and the sanctuary helpers and is very sweet and loving!! He is doing well with leash training.
Toto has been vetted, neutered and is heartworm negative.
Please consider giving Toto a loving home where he will never be in the dire situation he was once so near to. He so deserves this and will reward you with love and companionship for his lifetime!!
Donation: $450 (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.
