What is Karma? In essence, the Laws of Karma state that everything we do creates a corresponding energy that comes back to us in some form or another.

What goes around comes around. This is our Karma. She was found tied to a fence in the freezing cold, starving with every bone in her body showing. She was so very sweet when her Good Samaritan saved her that cold, frigid night. We could not imagine the suffering and fear she had endured to survive as long as she did. She has slowly been gaining weight, eating several meals a day and learning to be an inside dog. She was spayed and recently went through Heartworm treatment. She adores toys, hugs, and showing you how much she loves you.

She is housebroken, crate trained, leash trained and simply wonderful. She is excellent with people and the children she has been around, but she does not want to share her home, toys or food with another dog or cat at this time. We are not sure if it is due to her going so long without and whether this will ever change. Her foster Mommy believes that she just loves everything she has that is new to her and she wants it all for her very own. If you believe in Karma, in the future of our Karma, then her undivided love is awaiting you.

Adoption Donation: 450.00

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.
