Hi, my name is Reuben! The nice people who rescued me from a not so great situation tell me that I am a lady killer. I dunno what that is about, since I LOVE people so much and wouldn't harm anything- especially ladies- they are my favorite! I am cautious and curious and learning to love life now that I am being cared for in such a comfy place- I even have my own soft bed! You should see my skills at head tilting- that really gets the ladies cooing. They tell me I am so handsome! I like to stick close to my human and make an excellent adventure partner. I love everything from walking around the neighborhood to (you guessed it) capturing Pokemon! I love to see people so excited and outside running around. When I am not helping a human, I am hanging out with my foster siblings. I do great with other dogs- they are teaching me that life is fun and to be enjoyed. After a long day of all this fun, I love to cuddle up and gaze adoringly into the eyes of the person providing me with a wonderful new life. I am excited to find my forever home and hope that maybe it is with you!

Our adoption application can be found at http://www.aliverescuememphis.org/adoptionapplication/

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you submit an application immediately to start the adoption process. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, ALIVE Rescue Memphis is operated 100% by volunteers. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well educated decision from well qualified staff.

About ALIVE Rescue Memphis - Nashville Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

ALIVE Rescue Memphis is a branch of ALIVE Rescue, a very successful foster based rescue that has been going strong in Chicago for over 6 years.
Besides adopting out homeless animals, we also do reach out days at children's hospitals and senior living programs. Providing pet owners with all the tools they need is also very important to us. We plan to do community pet days, like our branch in Chicago, and supply vaccines and microchip to low income pet owners. Our desire is to keep pets in homes, and out of the shelters,
Our mission statement is ALIVE Rescue Memphis is an animal rescue that protects the lives and the rights of animals. We believe every animal has the right to a well-balanced, socialized and fulfilled life. We take on the responsibility to save, rehabilitate and place abandoned, abused and stray animals. We believe strongly in education, and providing pet owners with the tools they need to keep their animals happy and healthy pets. ALIVE Rescue Memphis promotes sustainable living & cruelty free living by building awareness, appreciation and respect for all animals and the environment within our communities.
