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 cant 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 arent 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!

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.
