Introducing Brienne.

We see a lot of puppies at local shelters, and each of them have their own unique way of handling being in the sheltering environment. Some puppies run straight to the kennel door, tails wagging, tongues hanging out, as if they have no idea of where they are. Then there are dogs that cower in the background. They are terrified and you can feel their shut down desire to just disappear as they fly their little flag that says "please walk on by, and pay me no attention. ".

And then, there are dogs like Brienne. She was the perfect and appropriate behavior we like to see in a dog in a scary environment. She sat in the back of her kennel with her siblings, happy that we were paying her attention, but painfully aware that her loud and scary surroundings were not where she wanted to be. We love to see a dog with some common sense like Brienne had. Sensitive but not shut down....perceptive puppy.

Brienne is currently in a foster home with other dogs, and is kid friendly. We think that this pup would make a wonderful addition to a family. She likes to romp and play and has lots of love to give. Brienne’s adoption fee is $500 and will include her microchip, spay surgery, vaccinations, deworming, health certificate, and transportation Memphis to your area.

About WILSON ANIMAL RESCUE- Brattleboro 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.
