Miranda Lambert & Tractor Supply teamed up to award $5000 in scholarship to a different area pet shelter or foster program in each state. In Mass that grant went to Sweet Paws Rescue in Essex!
I'm a firm pusher of adopt don't shop! Sweet Paws rehomes pets from Alabama, Mississippi, & Massachusetts. They are currently taking applications for adoptive parents. Cruising through their site they have puppies - mature dogs - big dogs - small dogs - Personally a fan of the Bull Mastif named Bacon and the German Shepard puppy Madame Leota who is just two months old.
And check out the other New England shelters that were granted $5000 from Miranda.
