Hey all! I'm Baxter! Nice to meet you!

I'm about 2 years old and they tell me that I'm one handsome dude!! I am an Australian Shepherd blend and I am full grown at 37 lbs, so I'm the perfect size. My perfect family would have other dogs, I LOVE to run and play with other dogs, fur brothers and sisters are awesome!! I'm afraid I might try to "herd" smaller, highly active children and sometimes get I spooked by them if they try to jump on me, so only older children for me please, if there are children in the home. I also seem to be partial to women and female children. Boys have been cruel to me in the past, so I'm trying really hard to trust them again.

I just want to let my new family know I'm here, I'm waiting for you. All you need to do is apply online www.RuralAnimalRescueEffort.org/adopt-foster

*Baxter's adoption fee is $200.00 and he is UTD on vaccinations, heart worm negative, on preventatives, neutered and micro-chipped.

**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**

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.

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.
