Dog Rescue Adoption Massachusetts

Paws From Afar is a 501 (c)3 foster-based non-profit organization serving the New England area, that is dedicated to saving and finding homes for dogs that are in danger of abandonment, abuse or euthanasia.​ 

With your help, we can continue to rescue and care for these wonderful dogs. Each one is unique and we won't stop until we find them their perfect furever home. Paws from Afar helps dogs find their forever homes in New England.


We try to keep our costs as low as possible, no salaries, overhead, etc. We have been faced with higher vet and transport costs, which as a small rescue, cannot support. Due to the unexpected rise in our costs, unfortunately, we have to raise our adoption fees.
