October Report for GlobalGiving 

 

The past few months have been busy at Paws New England! We thank you for your support and are pleased to share with you some of the stories you’ve helped us achieve. 

 

Dani-Marley

Sweet Dani-Marley needed some time to learn what being a dog meant. She came to us from a place that didn’t teach her life beyond a crate. She learned to eat from a bowl, to slowly explore new spaces, and to relax on the couch. Over about a month of time we focused specifically on leaving the house during daylight hours; once she knew the outdoors were hers whenever she went to the door, she would want to stay out all day long. Dani was adopted into a home with a fur-brother who is a registered therapy dog, and the huge strides she’s made by having him as her guide is heartwarming! She settled into her new home so much faster, and adores her big brother who continues to show her all of the ways to have fun! 

 

Tanker

Tanker was surrendered from a home that could no longer care for him. Most of his fur was gone, and he needed treatment for skin allergies to regrow his hair. Despite the discomfort he was in, he loved every second he was with you. He settled right into his foster home with me, and from what his new mom says, he owns all of his new home. His fur has come back in, and what a coat he has! This little guy is a spunky fella who knows it and requests ALL of the love, even with his new brother around (who’s also a PAWS alum)!

 

Sweetie

Sweetie was rescued from the place where she was born in Tennessee where she was kept in a kennel /barn stall for the first 5 years of her life. She had no socialization - no human touch besides the handler that fed her daily in her pen. Sweeties paws/legs initially white were stained from the excrement she had to endure standing in.

 

Coming to Paws New England, Sweetie was very withdrawn. She would stay in her crate and face the wall. She had never touched grass and would tiptoe outside in the yard on the grass and almost be on her front paws so her back feet didn’t touch the grass. 

Her foster  started working with a volunteer behaviorist who suggested we hand feed sweetie. She would not leave the house as she was terrified for leaving the front doog. Little by little her foster family was able to get out and take a walk in the woods. 

 

She made such great strides in foster care she would sometimes make eye contact ..allow for some pets and be hand fed. She was adopted by a wonderful family who has continued to work with her and now named Ellie has a loving family full of cuddles and hikes!

 

Coralen

Sweet Coralen was rescued from a life on the end of a chain in TN.  She and her puppies lived outside in often chilly conditions (we rescued the puppies too!!).  Coralen went through alot after being rescued- she was heartworm positive so was treated for that and then had to have FHO surgery to repair her hip.  Throughout all of this, she just wanted human attention and love.  She deserved the best and when she came up to be fostered in New England, she was able to find her forever home.  She is spoiled, loved and doted on everyday.  She has a dog neighbor she loves playing with.  She takes hikes around the land of her new home.  The family who adopted her is immensely grateful to PAWS for helping them to find this sweet girl!

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.

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!
