Gonzo here...I'm a little guy with a big personality and a red sweater. I was found by a good Samaritan who found me when I was out for a jaunt. Not totally sure where I was going - and I'm 100% sure I never want to be in that situation again. I am about 3 years old, am wrapping up heart worm treatment and will be fit as a fiddle in no time flat. I enjoy the company of other dogs and children are pretty great too. My adoption fee includes my heart worm treatment, health certificate, vaccinations, neuter surgery and transportation from my foster home in Memphis to your area upon adoption.

About Wilson Animal Rescue - Nashville 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.

For Example- In July 2015 Memphis Animal Services(city run animal control facility) took in 753 dogs. 191 were surrendered by their owners and 428 were brought in as strays either by animal control or by citizens. Of those strays 39 were returned to their owners. That was a good month for reclaims, typically only 5% of strays are returned to their owners. Of the 6,212 animals MAS has taken in through July of this year, 315 have been reclaimed. 336 dogs are euthanized in the month of July 2015, bringing the total of euthanized so far this year to 2228.

These numbers are from just ONE animal control facility. These numbers are why it has become our passion to help save these precious lives. To represent the underdog, to prove that rescues are just as loving and deserving as purebred dogs.
