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.
You must complete an adoption application, which will be fully reviewed by members of the executive board and board of directors of S.T.A.T.
All required fees must be paid in advance before the animal is released.
You must be 21 years of age and have a valid photo identification.
Certain animals MAY require an 'in-home' visit by a volunteer prior to release.
If you rent, you must provide the name of your and phone number of the landlord and the landlord must approve of the animal being on the property/in the house.
