Pets at Our Shelter:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:Sparta, TN, White County, Putnam County, Cumberland County, We are Very Rescue Friendly and will work with Rescues to make the process as simple as possible.
About Our Shelter:We are a very small dog only shelter in rural middle TN. We will accept owner surrenders as space allows however, you will be required to pay a $25.00 fee. Our primary focus is the intake of stray dogs and we try to reunite them with their family. On the occasions that their family can’t be found, or if the family is not interested in reclaiming their pet, we do all we can to find adoptive homes for them or place them with approved rescues.
As with all rural shelters in economically depressed areas, our adoption numbers aren’t very high so we strive to work with as many rescues as we can and we are always looking for more wonderful volunteers to help out the fur kids!
