Now Fostering in New England!
Lily was fortunate enough to spend her entire life with her brother Jake. Their love for one another was evident in all their interactions, especially by Jake’s daily grooming of her. When their owner passed away the siblings returned to the rescue that originally adopted them out (K9 Savior Rescue) and both traveled North in the hopes of finding a retirement home. Unfortunately Jake has recently crossed over the rainbow bridge and now Lily continues her search for a forever home.
Lily has a sweet, loving demeanor. She appreciates the finer things in life: a good walk, sitting on the deck in the early morning hours with a treat (a coffee for her human companion), and afternoon naps. She is housebroken and likes to be wherever her person is. Lily does well on mini-adventures, which have included trips to Home Depot, friends houses, and local parks. She has also become quite popular with the neighborhood children, and she sits politely while they all take turns petting her. Foster mom has even noticed she picks up her pace when she can see them down the road!
Lily does get sad when current foster mom goes to work because she would prefer to be with someone, but she is making progress! She is not destructive, and is often found napping on the couch upon return. Her ideal forever home would be a retiree or someone who works part-time, but this is not required! Lily is happiest when someone has plenty of love and pets to give (and someone who is maybe willing to share their green beans!). If you are looking for a couch buddy, please send in an application for Lily today!

Interested in a specific dog, please fill out an application if you are interested in a dog. The number of individual inquiries is overwhelming and we are finding it difficult to respond to each one. We cannot guarantee you will receive a timely response.
Paws New England is a rescue, not a shelter, and as such we do not have our dogs housed in one location - they are in foster homes both in New England and in our southern foster homes. If you’re interested in a specific dog, please complete a short online application and you will receive a reply within 48 hours so you can ask questions.
At present, if a dog is listed on our website, the dog is considered still available HOWEVER, may have applications that have come in before yours but it’s still too early to know if any are a good match; therefore we encourage you to apply.
NOTICE WITH REGARD TO LOCATION OF DOGS: Please note: Paws New England is a foster-based rescue. We do not have a brick and mortar building to house the dogs we rescue. We have found that dogs in foster homes are much more adoptable because they have been observed in a home setting. Dogs listed with Paws New England typically reside in various locations throughout the south (primarily Tennessee, Texas, and Arkansas) and New England (not necessarily in the state of Rhode Island). You will be notified by the adoption coordinator of the location of the dog you are interested in so you have the ability to decide whether to pursue adoption or not.
Dogs transported to New England are done so at a fee of $150.00 paid directly to the transporting company by Paws New England; no additional transport costs are responsibility of adopter. This fee is included in the adoption donation.
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 dog will help others in need.
All known information about the animal is listed above. We do our best to give accurate information, but most of our dogs are rescues and do not come with a known history.
Paws New England abides by the dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
