About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small, all volunteer, non-profit 501(c)(3) that rescues dogs in Tennessee and transports them to the Northeast as we find good adopters. We do this because there are SO MANYunwanted animals due to the lack of stringent Spay/Neuter Laws in Tennessee.

Our organization believes that spaying and neutering is the most effective and humane way of controlling our pet overpopulation because there are not enough homes for all of the unwanted litters. We offer a low cost Spay/Neuter services to our residents to assist in controlling the animal population.


Our goal is to save the precious lives through Rescue, Adoption and Spay/Neuter.

Our Motto is to Lend a Helping Hand to Those Without a Voice.

Our Facebook page is: DECATUR COUNTY (TN) HUMANE ASSOCIATION

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are in foster homes in Tennessee, but we are always happy to put you in touch with the appropriate foster home should you have questions that we can't answer about one of our dogs or puppies!

Our Adoption Process:

Prior to adoption all animals will have been spayed/neutered, quarantined for at least two weeks, made current on their immunizations (includes rabies if they’re old enough), dewormed (for tapes, hooks, rounds and whips) and started on heartworm preventive (dependent upon age). If they're over 6 months of age, they will be tested for heartworm and must be negative to be available for adoption. The adopter will receive a copy of their health record and Interstate Health Certificate.

Adoption Fee: $350 (unless stated differently in the listing). (This includes the $150 transport fee and the extra vetting required for transport.)

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.
