Moulin Rouge was picked up on Franklin Pike on 8-31-16. She appears to have had puppies not long before she was picked up. She was wearing a collar but no owner came for her. She is very sweet and lovable. She was tested for heartworms back in Oct and tested negative at the facility where she was spayed, however when she started to get sick this week she was retested and came back a light positive on her heartworm and for erlichia too. She has a road to recovery ahead of her but she is doing better now and would be a great family pet or companion for another dog. Any medications she has will go with her. She was taken to another vet for a second opinion and she has some sort of non contagious lung problem. She has an enlarged heart and the medications she is on are helping. Her meds will go with her as well as any refills remaining from the pharmacy. She is the darling of the shelter!

The current adoption fee is $75 which includes the dogs spay or neuter and Rabies vaccination at a local vet, and covers the distemper/parvo vaccine and bordetella vaccine and dewormings it receives here at our shelter. No dog will leave the shelter to an adopter without being vetted first.
By TN state law stray dogs are held for 3 days so they can be found by their owners before being put up for adoption or rescue. A dog found as a stray wearing a collar is held for 5 days before it is put up for adoption or rescue. Our shelter is a first come first adopt/rescue facility.There are no holds placed on dogs for potential adopters/rescue, however if a party is interested in a particular dog before it becomes available they may send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org and those inquiries will be kept track of in order of received once dog becomes available. Adopters/rescues will be notified what order they are in in regards to each dog. They are available at 8am on the day they are available. Non vetted dogs will have an appointment scheduled and will be available for pickup for adoption the day after their surgery. Approved rescues may pull a dog and have vetted at their own expense once available to the public.
