Hello world, my name is Dak.
I am an 6 month old boxer mix puppy who found my way into the high-kill Memphis pound through no fault of my own. See, my previous owner "surrendered " me to the city pound when they could no longer care for me. They even wrote a note and asked the pound not to euthanize me.

I was just sitting there in my kennel, when along came a lovely lady with a rescue. She got me out and fell in love with my sweet nature. I am now living in a foster home, where I am getting lots of love. I love the dog park and love playing with my foster dad's cat.

Some of my favorite things to do are read over your shoulder, go for car rides, take a nap with my person, long walks and I do love a nice meal in my tummy. My adoption fee is $500 and includes my neuter surgery, microchip, all up to date vaccines, de-worming, monthly heart worm prevention to date, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to your area upon adoption.

Let me know if you would like an adoption application!

About WILSON ANIMAL RESCUE - Chicago Transport Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Wilson Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-run, foster-based rescue group in Memphis, Tennessee. We focus on rescuing dogs who are in danger of being euthanized at the city's run shelter and other midsouth shelters. We strive to place dogs in loving homes not only locally but in cities in the Midwest and New England areas. There simply aren't enough people adopting in the Memphis area to keep up with the amount of adoptable dogs who find themselves homeless.

We keep in touch with our adopters - and not everyone who applies for a dog gets one. We say no as much as we say yes. We are looking for people who feel the same way about their dogs as we do - that they are family and bringing one into your home is a major commitment.

We also appreciate it takes a tremendous amount of trust to adopt a dog before meeting - trust on behalf of the adopter and trust from our fosters. They have to trust that we are sending the dog, who they have loved, to a wonderful new home. This trust is ever present in our minds and not something we take lightly, so we are happy to answer adopters questions. Please do, however remember that we are 100% volunteer run - we have jobs and families and we do our very best to respond as quickly as we can to all inquiries and follow up questions.

We have two vets we use primarily - Cloverleaf Animal Clinic and Walnut Grove Animal Clinic - they are both located in Memphis. Please feel free to call either of their clinics if you are interested in a reference for our rescue.

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our dogs are fostered in the Memphis area. We are happy for you to come to Memphis and meet any of the dogs we have available. We are unable to send dogs outside of the Memphis area prior to adoptions.

Our Adoption Process...

We send an adoption application to be potential adopter's, they fill it out and email it back to us. Once we read it over, called references and feel like it may be a good fit, we put the adopters and fosters in contact so they can further discuss the dog. We feel that being completely prepared, and transparent about the dog, is the best way to go. The adopter can ask questions about routine, behavior, etc. We are really looking for a best fit for the dog and adopter. And because all of the dogs are living in homes (no longer in a shelter environment) we really get to know them like they are our own. We get to see who is cat friendly, who really loves having kids around, who may be a little more unsure in new situations, etc.
