We adopted our dog Hatcher through Paws NE. He is the best dog and perfect for our family!! Our adoption counselor helped us find the perfect dog , who loves other dogs, cats, and kids. We could not be happier! We would wholeheartedly recommend adopting a dog through Paws New England!

We adopted Lexi from PAWS NE 1 1/2 years ago. Everyone was very professional and caring. Quick to return a call or an email during the process. A friend referred PAWS to us. This past week we adopted our 2nd puppy from PAWS. As with the first adoption all went smoothly and now we have two rescue dogs...

We adopted our Sadie from Paws New England several years ago. The process was easy and smooth. Everyone was friendly and they genuinely care about where their dogs are placed. We are so lucky that they connected us with Sadie - she is an amazing dog! We will definitely go through Paws New England in the future!

I've used PAWS NE twice and both times it was the very best. Two years ago I adopted Mooney and the adoption was do quick my head was spinning. PAWS is the only place I know when you begin the adoption process you pick the dog you want upfront. And they help you with picking up your new member of the family. So, when I decided Mooney should have a brother I returned to PAWS and fell in love with Joe and the process was even faster. I always mention PAWS when a friend is looking for a,new dog.

Great experience as a new foster with Paws. Such a committed group of organized volunteers who take their roles very seriously. Love being a part of this group!

I adopted my love from PAWS NE a little of a year ago. They were all so nice and I loved the process I had to go through the to become an approved adopter. They aren't letting these dogs go to just anyone who wants them. Most of these dogs have already been through so much already, so they make sure they are going to loving forever homes.

Nash (formally Baloo) was brought to New England from Tennessee. He and his 2 brothers were found in a trash bag after being thrown out of a car window. I can assure you he will be spoiled rotten for the rest of his life. We love him to the moon and back.

I was looking for a playmate for my 6 year old Yorkie mix when I found Lacey Lou on the Paws site. I couldn't be more pleased with Elaine and the entire group at Paws NE. The approval process was quick and painless. I met Lacey on adoption day and it was clear from Elaine's tears as she left her with me that she has a huge heart and a lot of love for the dogs she fosters. Lacey has been with me for a few months and everything I was told about her has been very accurate. She's a healthy fun loving Yorkie mix and is becoming fast friends with my other dog and cat. I couldn't be happier with my experience.

My boyfriend and I adopted our first dog through PAWS and i can easily say it was the best decision we have ever made. Lola was part of the central perk litter and she is the best pup in the world! We had great coordinators to help us through the process and we stay in touch because they care so much about the pups they foster and take care of. We want to get Lola a brother or sister soon and we most definitely will be adopting through PAWS again :)

I adopted my dog from Paws New England in March 2014. The adoption coordinator contacted me within a day of my filling out the online application. She was prompt, open to all my questions and very candid about what it is to adopt a dog sight unseen. We spoke over the phone and another volunteer came in person to do a home check. Within a week and a half of inquiring I was approved and picking up my new best friend from quarantine. Every step of the adoption process was professional, efficient and informative. Best of all I got my best friend! She arrived in Massachusetts safe and sound and I can't imagine life without her!

Paws New England completely changed my life. My boss is a foster parent and I am friends with several volunteers from Paws NE. My mother passed away in May of 2015 of Pulmonary Fibrosis. She was everything to me. I felt so lost. One day I was showing my fiancé one of the foster dogs that comes to my work and we began to just scroll for fun and then there he was, little Sammy! I immediately stopped and said there's something about this guy. We gotta have him. We weren't even looking to add another pet to our family but this felt right. I immediately contacted my boss and Joanne. They bent over backwards to bring Sammy into my world. His foster mom Susie took such great care of him and constantly gave us updated on our guy until we could pick him up. We officially adopted him on Father's Day and renamed him, Gulliver aka Gully! It's been a little over a year and to this day I cannot thank Paws NE enough!!! They're such an amazing organization that changes lives of people and animals. Gulliver is my loyal little buddy who adores me with everything in him and I 10,000% feel the same. Paws NE is ALL HEART! They're all about saving animals and giving them to loving and good homes. They do an amazing job and I owe so much of my happiness to them!!!
