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 is $500 and will include my spay surgery, up to date vaccinations, microchip, health certificate and transportation from my foster home in Memphis to your area upon adoption. I sure would love to be in my forever home for the holidays, but will patiently wait until the right person comes that person you?

About WILSON ANIMAL RESCUE- Rochester, New Hampshire 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.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...

Donations to our rescue can be made via Pay Pal to- or made directly to our vet bill at Cloverleaf Animal Clinic 901-682-5681.

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.
