Please submit an application AND do NOT also contact the shelter. You will be contacting both the adoption coordinator and the marketing director, who do not see each other's emails. This causes confusion.

MURPHY is such a great dog! His is adored in his foster home which he shares his foster home with a 3 year old little girl and a 1 year old husky. He is tremendously smart! He taught himself the dog door in under 5 minutes and swiftly follows direction. He loves to play but isn't a hyper or a barky boy. He is in heaven sitting on his foster mom's lap and cuddling in her bed at night. MURPHY knows not to potty in the house and minds his manners in his crate while his foster mom is at work. He rides very nicely in the car and will definitely be a loyal sidekick to his forever family. He can be timid initially in new situations, but warms up quickly. He is your best bud/shadow in a matter of days. The video on his adoptapet post was filmed less than 7 days after arriving to his foster home. MURPHY weighs about 40 lbs and is the perfect age of 2-3 years old. He will make more than a decade of happy memories, but is past his crazy and difficult puppy stage. His forever family will be blessed to have this boy.

MURPHY is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on all vaccinations.
His $300 adoption fee includes transport to the Nashville area.

Please email the completed application to weatherley.woofriver@gmail.com. It typically takes us around 5 BUSINESS DAYS to process an application. We will reach out to you as soon as your application is processed.

All of our dogs start their journey in Memphis, Tennessee where they remain in loving foster families until they are adopted. Once adopted, they travel via one of our transport partners to their new forever homes. We use Alpha Dog Pet Transport for our New England, Nashville, and Knoxville adoptions (https://alphadogtransport.com) and The Road Home Pet Transport for our Midwest adopters (https://www.facebook.com/roadhomepettransport).

Breed selection is done in conjunction with two local vets and is not to be considered a guarantee but rather a well-educated decision from well qualified staff.

Due to the extremely high volume of inquiries we receive, we ask that you request, complete, and submit an application before asking additional questions. We try very hard to include all pertinent information in our bios. We are excited to help you find your new family member. However, Woof River is 100% volunteer operated. We want to spend our time saving dogs and assisting those adopters who have taken the time to complete an application. Thank you for understanding.

About WOOF RIVER ANIMAL RESCUE- Nashville Chapter

Our Adoption Process...

The first step is completing an adoption application. Once we have received a completed application, we will do our absolute best to process it in 5 business days or less.

If you are approved there will be an adoption contract, spay/neuter contract (if the puppy is too young to be altered at the time of adoption).

Adoption fees are $250 for the Memphis area, $300 for the Nashville area, and $450 for all other locations. The fees are the result of a base of $250 plus transport costs.

All adopters will be required to provide top notch routine care for their pet. Annual exams, vaccines, and heartworm tests along with year round heartworm and flea/tick preventative are mandatory. NO EXCEPTIONS!
