Pets at Our Rescue Group:

About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue dogs which are family pets from shelters, as strays or from various other situations where they become homeless. We also offer rescue assistance to other people that rescue pets - through website space & screening of potential homes. We do this because we love dogs, they're not just dogs, they're fur kids.

Come Meet our Pets:

People can meet our pets anytime. We have a formal adoption fair at Agrifeed Pets in Knoxville, TN, every fourth Saturday. This date is advertised through radio, TV and newspapers so as many people know about it as possible.

Our Adoption Process:

Conversation & questions/answers start the process, then an application, reference checks, a home visit and hopefully an adoption.

Our adoption fee of $175 covers the spay/neuters, all shots, heartworm tests, microchipping and whatever an individual dog needs. Each adopter signs a contract, requiring that the dog come back to us if the adoption doesn't work out, spells out some requirements for the dog's wellbeing and starts a 30 day trial period, which gives new families & dogs time to settle in together and work out any issues which may come up.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
