Everyone meet Mamacita, the sweetest dog you will ever meet.

This girl came into animal control in Jonesboro Arkansas as a stray. She was heartworm postive and very pregnant. She was shy but very sweet. The kennel tech reached out to Paws and a new life for her was set into motion. She has raised all her puppies and they have found wonderful homes. She is done with the heartworm treatment and ready to find her happy new forever home.

Mamacita is so sweet. She loves people and dogs of all sizes. She is house trained, crate trained and has great manners. She is still a little scared and shy out in public but is getting better with every trip.

Mamacita loves the kids that come over to her foster home. She has been around kids as young as 5 and does great with them. She is very gentle with kids.

Mamacita loves to sit on the back porch and watch the birds and squirrels play in the back yard. Although, when the squirrel decides to play in the yard she thinks it is her job to run them back up the tree. She also loves to just chill with her human and get love.

Mamacita will fit into almost any home. She is just looking for someone to give her love and attention and a little time to get more comfortable with going out in public.

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.
