Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Grassroots is completely foster home based. As of now, all of our foster homes are located in Starkville, MS; however, we are always trying to recruit more foster parents. We serve mostly North and Central Mississippi.

About Our Rescue Group:

Grassroots loves animals, and we want to find our animals wonderful homes. We rescue animals that have been abandoned, strays, and mistreated. However, most of our animals are rescued right before they are scheduled to be euthanized. These animals have done no wrong, but so many shelters in our area have to deal with extreme pet overpopulation. We try to help our local shelters and community.

Come Meet our Pets:

If you are interested in any of our pets, please contact Kendra Wright at 618-477-2231. We can schedule a meeting to match you with your new best friend.

Our Adoption Process:

Grassroots requires all potential adopters to fill out an adoption application. Once the adoption has been approved, we require a signed adoption contract and a $75 adoption fee which covers the spay/neuter, UTD vaccines, and UTD heartworm & flea preventative.

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.
