Lovely Lupe was on the streets of Aruba for only who knows how long and one day she landed in front of the shelter - they were already so over-crowded but one of the ladies just couldn’t walk by her - she was so thin and you could tell was just over being tired and hungry and thirsty.
She’s been at the shelter for a while now and they thought she was almost adopted but the people changed their mind and everyone was so sad. Our co-founder just happened to reach out the next day to see if they had any seniors who needed a chance and it was like fate so she will be headed to the USA and New England soon.
Lupe is sweet and gentle and just likes to have your attention - she doesn’t ask for much. She doesn’t move too fast but she does enjoy her walks and would love a yard to hang on in the grass. She does fine with the other dogs in the shelter and doesn’t seem mind the kitties either. She is lovely with the workers in the shelter and the visitors too.
We can’t wait to get her to New England and she will come to a foster home first. We’re hoping to fly here here as soon as possible.

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 the 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 dog importation regulations set forth in the states of MA, CT, NH and RI.
