I am located in Wayne County which has no other shelters. Due to a high volume of dogs and puppies, we are currently only able to take dogs from Wayne County. If you live in another county, you can still contact us if it is an emergency and we will attempt to help you as best we can.
Tennessee Animal Rescue and Shelter Inc. was founded to help alleviate the suffering of animals. There are way too many animals that are abandoned, neglected, or abused by no fault of their own. This shelter plans to help these animals get the homes they deserve through rehabilitation and proper education. People need to be aware of their responsibilities to the animal before they bring it into their home.
Come Meet our Pets:
All animals are on site and will occasionally be shown at adoption days and local stores.
Our Adoption Process:
We start off with an interview which just covers some basic questions to make sure you will be providing a safe and loving home for your new pet. We have an adoption contract that is required upon adoption of an animal. It states that you must adequately take care of the animal which includes shelter, confinement if necessary, and proper nutrition. The adoption fee varies to include all of the funds the animal has used. If they are not spayed or neutered yet, a deposit will be required, or it will be done by us upon adoption.
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.
