Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Our facility, Barktopia, is located in Spring Hill, TN and our most recent location "TDRD North" is located in Brunswick, ME. Our Maine branch transports our dogs to their location to offer them for adoption.
Please check out our Facebook page:
Once approved, we will be happy to set up meet and greet(s) with any and all dogs that approved adopters are interested in meeting. We may also suggest meeting additional dogs that would be a good fit for the adopters family.
Adoption events in both Tennessee and Maine will be posted on our website, as well as on our Facebook page.
Adoption donation and adoption contract are required upon adoption. We do not adopt our dogs out to live outdoors under any circumstances. All current pets in an applicant's home must be current on all vaccinations and heartworm prevention, as well as spayed and/or neutered.
For Dogs/Puppies in TN - We ask for an adoption donation of $200 which helps to reimburse us for their medical expenses. All dogs and puppies go to their new homes with their vaccinations, a fecal exam and deworming if needed, heartworm testing and treatment if necessary, spay/neuter surgery and they are microchipped. For questions about adopting one of our dogs or puppies in TN, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
For Dogs/Puppies in ME - We ask for an adoption donation of $350 which covers all procedures previously covered for our TN dogs. In addition, we are required to purchase a health certificate for each dog going to ME so they can travel outside of TN which is an additional cost of $25. Transportation for each dog to our ME branch also costs us a transport fee of $125. For questions about adopting one of our dogs or puppies in ME, please contact email@example.com.
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.
