Downtown Dogs primarly serves the city of Jackson, TN and surrounding areas.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are four women who live or work in the downtown area of Jackson, TN. After witnessing the stray dogs roaming the streets, we pooled our resources and energy and began to get the dogs off the streets and into homes. We had to use live humane traps to capture some, as they were not socialized to the human touch. We have vaccinated, altered and heartworm treated and adopted several of the adult dogs and prevented their babies and future babies from growing up on the streets. Whenever possible, we reach out to all pets in need. We believe any dog is worth saving, and we do not euthanise except in situations of severe and non-reversable medical conditions, and only when it is the humane thing to do.

Come Meet our Pets:

We are a new group, and we currently do not hold adoption events.

Our Adoption Process:

Application is required and applicants will be throughly screened by contact with vet and personal references. Upon approval the adopter will enter a contract ensuring the continued care and safety of the animal. A fee of $450 includes the cost of transporting the animal to a location near the adopter.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
