Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are located in Chattanooga, TN. but we do adopt out of state. Transport is available at no cost to our adoptors.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are not your average rescue. The dogs that are surrendered to us are not kept in runs, kennels, or cages. All dogs are with one of our loving fosters, kept as indoor family members with outdoor, supervised playtime. Many of the dogs that are surrendered to us were kept in cages, runs, tie outs, chains, etc...a neglected dog will most always end up with a rescue or euthanized. Without proper... socialization, vetting, lack of human interaction and due to back yard breeding, our best friends are dying by the thousands in shelters, but were changing that through education.

Come Meet our Pets:

Our pets are in foster homes, we can always arrange meet and greets.

Our Adoption Process:

"Pit Happens" adoption process is an initial questionnaire, a home check, and adoption agreement. We also allow the dog a 3 day "sleep over" to make sure he/she is a fit for the family.
Requirements for adoption: Kept as indoor family members. Fenced in yard for some of the younger dogs, adoption agreement, home check.
Adoption fee is 150.00 for adults, 200.00 for dogs under 15 months of age.

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.
