Hi, my name is Antonia. I have lived the past year of my life in rural Mississippi, occasionally being let in by the family who had me, but mostly I was left, with my friend Remy, to roam. I had puppies two months ago and sadly the family began giving them away for "free to good homes". The folks at Wilson Animal Rescue heard about it and contacted the family. They urged them not to give them away, and then said they would come get me, my puppies and my friend Remy. The people with the kids got in touch with a rescue and one thing lead to the next - me, my friend, my puppies were all on our way to foster homes. We were happy to go, just knew when that car pulled up and the lady said "come on girls" that life was going to change for the better...and it has. Which is where I am now...a much better life, living with a very sweet foster dad who takes excellent care of me and is teaching me sit, stay, and is kennel training me.

I am looking for my forever home, one where I can finally belong for good. I am about 1 years old, good with kids and other dogs. My adoption fee will include my spay surgery, up to date vaccinations, and microchip. I sure would love to be in my forever home for the holidays, but will patiently wait until the right person comes along....is that person you?

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.
