Fill out an adoption form

A sweet senior lady left behind when her family supposedly moved - that’s what the people who surrendered her said but maybe they themselves turned her into the shelter, we aren’t sure.

This poor girl had so much hair in her mouth wrapped around teeth from probably never being groomed it was amazing - her teeth don’t actually look too bad for a 13 year old.

She arrived to the Memphis Animal Shelter with fleas, hair missing because of it, her teeth practically falling out of her mouth, and ear infections so terrible she could barely hear.  Her eyes  - we don’t know - they were practically glued shut.

She has seen a veterinary ophthalmologist and was diagnosed with an ulcer and low tear production in
the left eye - she is on several eye drops presently for this condition which would need follow up after adoption.

She had a senior blood panel that was amazingly…. fabulous.

Her foster mom say she’s the most adorable dog - she mapped her house in about 2-3 days so don’t let the fact she can’t really see scare you.

We’re sending Ms. Blanche to New England arriving on 1-27! She’ll be looking for a quiet home with like aged dogs - she’s living with some now and it’s great. Another dog is not required if you’ve got tons of time and love to give.

Paws New England is a foster-based rescue - our dogs reside in various locations throughout the south and New England.  

Adoption donations cover pre-adoption vet costs (including vaccinations, spay/neuter when age appropriate, and heartworm testing/treatment when necessary), a microchip, and transportation to New England if necessary.

Donations for our young, healthy puppies and dogs support their fellow canines of advanced age or suffering from injuries and abuse whose donations are reduced but whose veterinary costs are typically much higher. We appreciate your understanding that your newly adopted dog will help others in need.
