We are a private 501 (c) 3 shelter in rural West Tennessee. We are named after the late Mrs. Frances Halbrook Hensley. Mrs. Hensley was an avid animal lover of all dogs and cats. She sacrificed everyday essentials that most take for granted in order to leave all she could to build this facility. This shelter is her dream, her vision, her legacy and the very first of its kind for this community.
It is our Mission to carry out her legacy by giving abandoned and neglected animals in our community the love and care that they deserve while offering every opportunity to finding their forever home.
An Adoption Application must be completed and approved along with the necessary adoption fee paid before an animal will be released to a new adopter. We will hold the fee and the pet of your choosing during the application approval process. Most applications take 24-48 hours for complete approval.
