About Our Rescue Group:

Welcome to Jeff Tarpley Rescue (JTR)!

A one man rescue with foster angels dedicated to helping animals. JTR's animals for adoption are rescued from shelters or owner surrenders. Every JTR rescued animal is fully vetted and 100% healthy prior to adoption. Puppies under 4 months old receive their shots from a DVM. A spay/neuter contract is required for adoption. The vetting of an adult animal includes spay/neutered, shots with rabies, heartworm and parasite tested. Treatment of heartworms, dentals, cherry eye repair, mange, parvo exposure and broken limbs are some examples of what is done to save lives. Vet records come with adoption along with the last date of interceptor for heartworm prevention and frontline placed for flea control.

JTR will transport and ship any animal. All rescued animals deserve a wonderful home now and not sit waiting for months. Jeff will personally drive some distance to help a homeless animal find his or hers forever home.

Who Am I?

My name is Jeff Tarpley. I am an independent rescuer in the Texarkana, Texas and Texarkana, Arkansas area. In June 2007 I started transporting rescued and adopted animals around the four states area. My first transport was an abused (GSD) German Shepard Dog out of Louisiana headed to Minnesota. His name was Wilson and I will never forget him. Since meeting Wilson, I have driven 59,400 miles for the animals.

JTR will continue to transport, donate and rescue for other rescue groups but the main focus is helping animals that have very little chance to live.

Our Adoption Process:

Adopting a new friend from JTR...

Jeff Tarpley Rescue welcomes all inquires from home owners and condo, apartment dwellers. A completed adoption application and upon approval, adoption contract is required.

Residences in the 50 states and Canada with a minimum age of 18 years old are considered for adoption. Adoption fees depend on the expenses of vetting, treating and caring for the animal.

Never adopted before?

Everyone wishing to adopt an animal from JTR must complete an adoption application. This application asks for general information about the adopter, adopterís family, other current and prior pets and previous veterinary care. If you have never had a family pet before, follow up veterinary calls will be made during the year to insure the animal is being well cared for. Home visits are required unless the distance is too far for JTR or JTRís contacts. Pictures of the home and common ground are required. Once the application is approved the adopter may meet and or adopt any of JTR's animals. A signed adoption contract is required. Adopters with approved applications are top priority to JTR.

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.
