Spot is a very happy and exuberant beagle about 3-6 years old (we are calling him 5!) and a male. He dislikes cats but gets along with dogs as a rule. He came to us as a rescue from a good samaritan who found him with severe lacerations. He might not be ideal for young children because he likes to jump up for attention and could knock a child over with his excitement. However, we have not tested him around infants or toddlers and don't know for sure.... But he loves people, and he seems perfect for those that are slightly older: a very active 11-year-old was happily playing and dancing with him. He is a beagle and will howl and bay some! He will also kiss you and just loves attention and petting and belly rubs. We know he did not have much of a family life before and was outside alone -- penned or chained most of the time. We think he is a wonderful dog and has a loving personality. Really, he just wants to be a part of someone's family. Thank you so much for any assistance in finding this good boy a home!

About Shelter Animals Rescue Group (SARG)

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit rescue group, with emphasis on mixed-breed dogs and cats. We adopt primarily from our local animal shelter, although we occasionally take in hardship cases. We also assist individuals in our area by advertising on our website animals they need to rehome, if the animals have been spayed/neutered. We gratefully accept donations, and we need volunteers for many events. More than anything, we need foster homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

As a volunteer group, we do not have a facility. Our animals reside in foster homes and boarding kennels. We show them regularly at the PetSmart store on Parkside Drive in Knoxville the second Friday of each month, 4 to 8 p.m., as well as by appointment.

Our Adoption Process...

Cat adoption fee is $125, and $145 for dogs. We attempt to match the animal's characteristics with the family and their lifestyle. We require an application form, which becomes part of the adoption contract, a personal or phone interview, veterinarian reference if applicable, home visit, and an additional agreement about how the animal will be treated. Cats must be indoors only, not declawed. Dogs must be fenced or leashed when outdoors and treated as part of the family--indoors as much as possible, and always at night. Adopter agrees to provide regular veterinary care, and to return the animal to us if they ever give it up. We reserve the right to check on the animal's welfare from time to time, with appropriate notice.
