Black Bear Animal Rescue serves Trousdale County, the smallest county in Tennessee, as well as other counties in Middle TN. Our outreach has also rescued in several other southern states, and we gladly assist shelters and other rescues as transportation, space and funds allow.

About Our Rescue Group:

Our mission is to "Protect, Defend and Rescue." We trust in the model of educating those in our community in conjunction with efforts to locate and provide contact information for low-cost/no-cost vet care and spay/neuter programs, transport, and efforts to intervene before dogs/puppies are taken to shelters or animal controls that must euthanize for space.

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.
