Hey folks! Now that my handsome face has caught your attention, let me tell you a little about ME....

My name is Copperhead, Copper for short. I'm a hunka-hunka burning love...87 pounds of love that is! I'm around 3 years old, but still a bit of a clown and I enjoy making people laugh. I love me some people! I just can't get enough of having my ears scratched, my nose kissed and my belly rubbed. When it comes to dogs, I am a ladies man and only like to be around a submissive female, otherwise I need to be an only dog. I really love kids too but when I get excited, I can knock them down accidentally because of my size and clumsiness. So, I'd be best with older kids, that weigh more than me. I definitely need a fenced yard because I like to run and do "zoomies" and stretch my big muscular legs.

My foster mom says that I am magnificent and a special person or family will be lucky enough to adopt me someday. I need someone assertive and alpha. Let's face it, I'm a pretty big boy and I do best with structure. I am very loving and will lay in your lap as if I was only 20 lbs. If you think you may be the right person or family for me, then please don't wait and apply for me today. I was waiting in a shelter for over two years before I went into a RARE foster home. I just know it's my turn to find a family and I'm patiently waiting for you.

My adoption fee is $150.00. I am neuterd, UTD on vaccines and microchipped.

Please apply for me online via or use the following link:

I am spayed/neutered, up to date on age appropriate vaccinations, kept on intestinal parasite and heartworm preventative, and microchipped, all of which is covered under my adoption fee of $175.00.

Please visit for foster and adoption applications or for additional information. If you have any trouble, please email us at

Please allow us at least 24 hours to respond, as we are a volunteer based organization with full time jobs in addition to rescue. If you do not hear from us within 72 hours, please feel free to email us at to inquire on the status of your application.

**An application and home visit are required. Transport can potentially be arranged to approved homes. Please ask us for more information if you are not in Tennessee**

**All of our pets are or will be spayed/neutered, up to date on all vaccines and micro-chipped prior to adoption. Please complete the application on our website and we will call you to answer any questions you may have.**

Our adoption fees not only help the animal being adopted, but they also help to cover heart-worm treatments and other treatable ailments that many animals, that would otherwise be euthanized, need to be made available for adoption.

Thank you for choosing to adopt, foster, or aid in the rescue efforts of RARE!

About Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE)

About Our Rescue Group...

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals in rural areas, mainly in 'pounds' and shelters, both high-kill and no-kill. There tends to be a higher overpopulation rate in rural areas due to lack of animal ordinances and alteration to prevent unwanted litters. Many animals are 'dumped' on country roads left to parish or end up at the local pound or animal shelter if they have an empty kennel. Many of these animals have a limited number of days before they are euthanized. In addition to placing animals in foster and adoptive homes, networking with rescues to assist in placement and adoption of animals, RARE also performs fundraisers for spay/neuters and other vetting to prevent further overpopulation and promote quality of life for the animals we save.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption fees cover all vetting for the animals in our care, including vaccinations, Heart-worm test, Heart-worm treatment if needed, Feline Leukemia test, spay/neuter and may vary, depending on species.

Fosters and Adopters will be required to complete an application with personal and Veterinary references. A home visit is also required.
RESCUES, please contact us regarding pull information or pull fee, if any, depending on vetting already provided by RARE.
