in keeping with policy of never taking one dog from a run and leaving his/her buddy behind, Karma was the run mate of adorable Callie who recently came to New England and now we’d like to find this boy a great home as well.

His caretakers at the Second Chance Animal Alliance tell us he is a “big, lovebug, but has obviously spent his entire life as a Mississippi yard dog.  His teeth are worn, and the vet thinks he probably spent his life living on a chain and chewing on it or some other metal object.  Karma gets along well with all the friendly dogs at the shelter, and gets to enjoy a large playgroup of other dogs of various sizes.”

So as usual, he’s not had a great life to date but he doesn’t let that cloud his future - he’s a happy boy who likes his canine friends and his likes his humans too - felines we don’t know!!!

We’d love to see Karma in a home with another dog as he truly does enjoy them.  He’s a big boy so small children might not be a good match only because of his size but we can sure “kid test” him.

He absolutely LOVES car rides and will jump right in. 

Oh and he gives the best kisses!!!

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.
