Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Middle Tennessee and strive to support local shelters with overcrowding problems as well as individuals who are in need of surrendering their animal to a no-kill facility. We are currently funded by a wonderful foundation, Daisy's Legacy, founded by Sharon Langford. Ms. Langford is a local author who's book sales proceeds fund her wonderful mission of helping local animals and education. Please check out her book, Living with the Rescues, for heartwarming stories about her experience with rescuing dogs.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a fostering organization and are always looking for new foster families and volunteers for our wonderful animals.

Our Adoption Process:

We do ask that you fill out an adoption application and sign an adoption contract once you have decided to adopt an animal. An adoption donation is requested to help us help other animals and to pay medical expenses that are incurred with each dog.

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 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.
