Meet darlin' Amata, named by her wonderful sponsor, Jennifer.

Amata was one of ten dogs that were scheduled to be PTS the following day by gassing at a very rural shelter in the south. Someone notified our MO foster mom of this and between her and her fellow rescuers, all the dogs were saved from this horrific act. Six of them are presently in the PAWS dog sanctuary in MO.

Amata is a one year old terrier mix that weighs about 25 pounds. She is an absolute hoot! The cutest thing and very quirky and smart as whip. She is a butt wiggler too! She loves to play and will keep you entertained for hours. She gets along well with the other dogs and all the workers. She is crate trained.

Amata has now been vetted and spayed, but was found to have heartworm. We will be treating her soon and she will be able to travel about two weeks after that. We expect her to have a full recovery.

Please consider having this lovable pup join your family.

Thank you for your interest in a rescue dog. They are just the best!!!

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.

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.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Amata (LOCAL 6/8/13), a Barrington Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) for sale in Barrington, or seeking a Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) 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 Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) breeders who help with Terrier (Unknown Type, Small) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Barrington paves the way for another one to be saved.
