Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We rescue many of our shelter dogs from Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control. We serve the middle Tennessee area but also adopt our dogs into permanent homes throughout the state of Tennessee.

About Our Rescue Group:

Named in memory of Bonaparte, her own adopted shelter dog, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and lifelong dog lover Emmylou Harris established Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue in 2004. Located in Nashville, Bonaparte’s Retreat first rescued dogs deemed unadoptable from the Nashville Humane Association. Since those early days, our work and mission have evolved and we now focus on saving adoptable dogs whose time has run out at Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.

We are dedicated to providing nurturing care for adoptable dogs when their allotted time at a shelter has elapsed. Our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to adopt them into permanent, loving homes.

Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Visit our website to learn about how you can help, support us, foster, volunteer, or adopt. www.bonapartesretreat.org

Our Adoption Process:

Our mission is to insure that all our rescued dogs are adopted into loving and permanent homes. We thoroughly screen potential adopters and do all we can to insure that you adopt the right dog for your home, family, and lifestyle. At Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue, our adoption process works like this:

Visit our website to access our online adoption application: Click Here

If your application is approved, we arrange for you to meet the dog. We then bring the dog to you for a home visit to make sure the adoption is a good fit.

If you make the decision to adopt, a three-week trial adoption period begins during which either you or we can change course and cancel the adoption decision. During these three weeks, we are committed to doing everything possible to assist you and your adopted dog with adjusting to a new home and living environment.

Our adoption fee is $125 (or $75 for special needs or senior dogs, a senior being any dog 7 years or older).

All our adoptable dogs have received vaccinations, been spayed or neutered, tested for heartworms and either treated or started on prevention, and are current on flea and tick prevention. Because of our process, we regret that we are unable to do out-of-state adoptions.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
