Venus was one of 30 dogs I brought in from a Louisiana shelter to make room for the flood dogs. Venus was literally dumped at a dump and a neighbor fed her for about three weeks there before calling the local humane association. She is gorgeous! We brought her to Nashville and know she's going to find a great home! She's house-trained. SHe's great with other dogs and kids. She's very playful and fun. She's about 35 pounds and should be fully grown. She looks mostly boxer if not full blood. Come meet Miss Venus!

About Keely's Friends Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Keely was my 14-year-old pitbull that crossed Rainbow Ridge a few years ago. She was the most mishievous, rambunctious girl you can imagine and she was my girl. She was the kind of dog that many would have given up on. She was an escape artist and I spent many days and nights searching for her once even finding out that she had snuck in through a neighbor's cat door and walked upstairs to his bedroom, jumped on his bed and woke him up with a lick in the face at 3am in the morning. On one of our daily runs I had to swim into a cow pond to save a cow that she had decided to grab by the ear while the cow was taking a dip. She decided my neighbor's pet llama was a little too close to me one day and decided to grab her around the throat....llama was fine. So many fun emoticon I often wondered if Keely had not found me and ended up in animal control....would she have made it out? Most pits don't....over 750,000 euthanized yearly...90% of bully-type dogs that end up in animal control are PTS immediately. This led me to start a rescue group named after Keely. I mainly rescue medium to large breed dogs from animal control as we know those are the first ones to be euthanized. I also focus on catahoulas as those are often misunderstood and end up in animal control but I've worked with all breeds. Keely's Friends Dog Rescue has rescued and rehomed over 70 dogs at this point and I look forward to helping so many more. I dream of a world where we no longer have to euthanize any dog for overpopulation and every dog has a wonderful, loving home.

Most of our adoptable dogs are at our farm in the Joelton/Goodlettsville area...northwest of Nashville, TN.

Our Adoption Process...

We work to get as many dogs out of local animal controls and into loving homes. We also accept dogs that need to be rehomed from their current living environment due to changing family situations. Fees vary ($75 to $600...most are in the $175 to $275 range) depending on dog and fees associated with the rescue of each dog.
