This is Sanford, named by his wonderful sponsor, Melanie:)
Sanford has arrived in New England. His foster mom said he has been a great foster thus far. She has no complaints. Sanford is so sweet and has a great personality. He gets a long so well with his foster mom's dogs and her cat. He listens very well and just loves to be loved. He is SO cute. Sanford will be a great pet for anyone looking for a loving dog. He slept in his crate with no problems and is very good on walks and in the car.
Sanford is a puppy. He is a 7-8 month retriever mix that weighs about 50 pounds. Sanford was brought to our MO fosters home a while back because there was a man in a neighborhood that was shooting at stray dogs. He had already fatally injured one and a kind lady asked our foster if she would take three dogs that she had been feeding because she was afraid they would get killed or injured too.
Sanford arrived very thin, but now looks and feels much better. He is a very sweet, easy going pup. Tails always waggin'. He does not mind a crate and uses a doggie door to do his business. He gets along with the other dogs, but is not good at sharing his food. However, this is improving daily now that he knows he will never have to starve again.
Sanford is all vetted, neutered and is Heartworm negative. He is anxiously awaiting a forever home where he can be a families life long companion!!
Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are the best!!
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 $50.00 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.
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.
