East TN Area - Knoxville and sourroundings
We are East TN Pit Bull Rescue and we search for loving and responsible forever homes for needy pits in the East TN Area. We will consider aid to a dog out of that area if there is not one to fill the spot from our area. We educate on the truth about the breed and responsible ownership of the breed. We help fight Breed Specific Legislation and educate communities on ways to strengthen their dog laws with BSL language. We hold adoption events as well as educational events aimed at redeeming the reputation of this breed. We do these things because we realize that the future of this breed depends on the public and the media seeing the real Pit Bull.
Come Meet our Pets:
People can see our pets at regualr adoption events around the area like the Tractor Supply in Oak Ridge, TN where we are on the 4th Saturday of each month - OR - by setting up an appointment to meet a specific dog.
Our Adoption Process:
Each dog is spayed/neutered, micro chipped and vaccinated, HW tested and put on preventative. All medical problems are addressed. Dogs are evaluated for 30 days and not placed available for adoption until they meet certain requirements. Once posted for adoption, there is an application that includes phone interviews and a home visit. The fee is $125 unless we are running a special campaign or a dog has a sponsor. There is an adoption contract that states expectations of new owner and that dog will always come back to rescue if new home falls thru.
