Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We rescue from the Covington City Pound which is not open to the public. The owners either claim their dogs or prior to our organization started in 2008, all dogs were euthanized. We have rescued almost 300 dogs in the past 2 years already.

About Our Rescue Group:

We rescue dogs that are literally on death row. Either we get them out or they are euthanized because owners seldom rescue their dogs from this pound. The pound is not open to the public and so we as C.A.R.E. (Covington Animal Rescue Effort) are these dogs only hope! We rescue, place them in loving foster homes and get all vetting done. Each dog is spayed/neutered, all vaccinations up to date and dewormed before an adoption.

Come Meet our Pets:

We do a monthly adoption event at Atoka Hollywood Feed in Atoka, TN and will be expanding to other locations soon

Our Adoption Process:

We ask all adoptive families to go to our website at www.covingtonanimalrescueeffort.com and follow the adoption application process tab. You must give 2 references and a vet reference and be willing to do a home visit if necessary. The rescue fee is $125.00 this time.

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.
