SPRING 2020 Update

Autumn: Autumn was removed from a neglect situation along with several other dogs. A sad start, but Autumn didn’t let this slow her down. She did great at her southern foster home.  Her favorite thing to do was to just meander about the backyard taking in all the smells and lounging on the porch dog bed (weather permitting).  Autumn is very proud to share that she caught a freedom ride to New England and she was SUCH a good girl that her foster family decided she was a real keeper! 

 

Liberty Bell: Liberty Bell came to us after she had to have her leg amputated because her owner kicked her and threw her down a flight of steps.  Yes- absolutely terrible! Her owners had a legal case associated, and she was surrendered to our rescue partner. Liberty was loving, sweet and a cuddle bug through it all! She is happy to have a home in New England now. 

 

Guardian: Guardian decided to take up residence in the front yard of a couple living in Memphis - he showed up one day and just decided their front yard was now his. The humans in said house didn't really mind - they had a dog so maybe that's what made him like that particular area!  They invited him and once in a while he'd go inside but for the most part he'd say outside.  As a nice couple, they would feed him, bought him a bed and when it was cold, again, would try to get him inside by tricking him, any way they could!  Then one day the couple had to move. 

Unfortunately they were moving and they were concerned as their landlord said he didn't want the dog hanging around and he'd "take care of it" so they posted for help for him.  We saw this and couldn’t say no. Guardian came into the program and the rest is history! He is now an inside dog and isn’t sure why he didn’t try this out earlier! 

 

Addison: Addison found herself expecting puppies - and then found she was out on her own being dumped by her prior humans. Addison birthed her puppies while she was on her own.  Poor Addison was trying to cross the main highway one day with one of her littles right behind her!  Addison eventually led her rescuers to the rest of her puppies and they have been fostering with their finder ever since! Addison quickly went back to life as an owned dog - and is very thankful that her puppies have all been adopted out, spayed/neutered and that she will also always have a warm, soft bed and no more babies for herself either! 

 

Daisy Oreo: Daisy was living at a construction site in Houston with another dog for at least 5 months. The crews working there had set up a feeding station, but were never able to catch the dogs. Finally, one of the guys hired a trapper and they were able to get them both safely trapped. The dogs were not chipped, and no one seemed to be looking for them. Daisy adjusted to home life well- and it didn’t take long for her to really blossom in her foster home! We’re very happy to have played a small part in Daisy Oreo’s journey.

Winter 2020 Update from Paws New England's GlobalGiving Project!

It has been a busy winter here at Paws New England! While so many of the woodland creatures have gone into hibernation, our rescue efforts have not! Here are some of the stories that we have helped to turn into "Happy Tales" thanks to your generosity:

Lucy: Momma Louise, now known as Lucy, has a sad past like so many others in Texas. In September she was found under an abandoned house emaciated with her litter of puppies. They were rescued and brought to the county shelter. Her puppies found homes and now it is Lucy’s turn.

She has the most beautiful soulful eyes that make you just want to hug her! She loves her hugs and scratches. Lucy will let you cuddle and pet her as long as you want. Her coloring is gorgeous and her coat is very healthy.

Lucy loves her food and gobbles it right down! She has gained weight, now at 55 lbs. shortly after she arrived at her foster home, it was noticed that she had a limp. An X-ray was done and it was determined that she needed to have FHO surgery which was done the middle of January.

Dusty Miller: Dusty Miller was owner surrendered to a Texarkana shelter at only 4 months old! Lucky for Dusty Miller, our GlobalGiving campaign helped us to pull Dusty out of she shelter! She is a cute little girl and will be sure to find a home quickly!

Daisy Mae: Daisy found herself at the county shelter as a tiny pup back in December of 2010. She was adopted out as a cute puppy but it turns out that the family that chose her was not to be her forever family. She was found as a stray and brought back to the shelter over 8 years later in November 2019. It was obvious that she had a rough life. She was now heartworm positive, her front teeth are pretty much gone and she has a cauliflower ear which is indicative of long-term untreated ear infections. She is now a senior and her chances of making it out of the shelter were slim but this girl has such a sweet and gentle disposition, so lucky for her she caught her foster mom’s eye and she was pulled by our rescue partner in Texas in December.

Buck Beau: Buck was a dumped dog who the land owner was threatening to shoot as he had done to dogs previously. In an attempt to save his life, a neighbor took Buck to a local vet and was tearfully pleading for a rescue to take. Of course Buck was taken into rescue and is now fully vetted and looking for his forever home.

Kirby: Sweet Kirby landed in the Memphis Animal Shelter with some pretty nasty wounds from an apparent dog attack - when we took her she went right to Memphis Veterinary Specialists for an exam and a drain was placed in one of her neck wounds and the other wounds were cleaned up - some pain meds and antibiotics and she was on her way!
