Thank you for considering one of our wonderful dogs for your family. Our dogs come from all over Madison County Tennessee; from the high kill municipal facility, found as strays, abandoned by owners, surrendered to us by broken hearted families that simply cannot keep the pet because of harsh circumstances.

Our STATDawgs, as we like to call them, receive all of the vet care that they need; routine vaccinations, deworming, blood tests, spay/neuter, and the treatment and/or management of any health issues.

Our STATDawgs are not housed in a shelter type environment. They are each placed in a private home to be fostered. They are given the opportunity to learn proper house manners, basic commands and social skills. They learn to be polite on outings to adoption events, walks, and monthly visits to the local veteran's home where they bring joy to the residents. 

We will provide you with a full and honest health record as well as full disclosure about behavior and temperament from the foster. 

S.T.A.T. makes a substantial effort to assure that adoptable animals are in good health and of good temperament. It is possible, however, that undetectable illnesses or conditions may be present or incubating at the time of adoption, or that dogs may exhibit behavior that was not observed during their foster period. Therefore, S.T.A.T.  does not make any guarantee as to age, behavior, breed, health, temperament or ultimate size of any animal.



Hello! My name is Mack and I'm a funny little clown. As you can see I'm a mix of two dogs that one would not usually put together. This makes me uniquely handsome if I don't say so myself. 

My former owner dumped me at a high kill facility. It was terrifying. I thought I would die there. But then a nice lady came to visit me every day and next thing you know I was rescued! I was given to a couple who love me bunches, but want me to find a happily ever after home so they can help more dogs like me.

I like to take my time getting to know people, small children overwhelm me a little bit. I think I'd like to live in a house without kids if that would be alright. It's nothing personal, they just move fast and it makes me nervous. 

Mostly I want to sit in your lap and watch tv or keep you company while you read or just relax.

About Saving The Animals Together - PA

About Our Rescue Group...

Saving The Animals Together (S.T.A.T.) is a group of animal lovers dedicated to networking and rescuing dogs and cats from our local high kill shelter, as well as animals that are in danger of being sent to a high kill facility. All of our dogs and cats are rescued in Tennessee. We invite you to help us save the lives of these pets on death row.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a foster based rescue and as such, we have no public facilities. Our fosters are all in Tennessee, therefore meeting your pet before adoption is not possible. However, we will provide accurate information about each animal. Because they are fostered in homes, we are able to assess their temperament. The fosters work on behavior, house training, socialization and provide the best individualized care.

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption fee of $350 includes vetting, including spay/neuter, all age appropriate vaccinations, deworming, heartworm/lyme/ehrlichiosis test for all dogs (and treatment for any positive results),a microchip, and transport costs. (Adopter is responsible to register the chip and pay any registration fees). All of our adoptable pets are current on heartworm preventative and flea/tick preventative. You will find our preliminary application on our website!adopt-from-us/c10if Upon receiving your application a volunteer will contact you for a telephone interview and then our local volunteer will set up a home visit.
