Meet April! April is looking for a Foster-to-adopt family!

In just a few short weeks, Fetch & Releash is traveling back to Tennessee to SAVE 15 lucky dogs. These pups have been living on a farm since their rescue from a high kill shelter, and are desperately wishing for a second chance at a loving family to call their own. What better way to get involved in the rescue movement than to open your home to one of our dogs as a foster-to-adopt family!

The pups will arrive on Sunday June 4th. As foster-to-adopt family, you will have one week to get to know your new dog before we open up their profiles and photos to the public. For our most popular dogs, competition can be stiff and you’ll be first in line for adoption should you decide he or she is the right fit for you! We have helped to rescue over 60 dogs from this farm, and most (if not all) of these pups were adopted by their foster or foster-to-adopt families.

If you decide after one week that the dog is not the right fit for you, that’s okay, we simply ask that you continue to provide a safe and loving short term home until his or her forever family is found. In the event of an emergency we request 48 hours to find your foster pup a new home.

April / F/ 7 yrs / 63 lbs / Catahoula Mix

Meet April! April is ready for a place to call home. She is an easy loving and affectionate girl that is described as a “sweetheart” by her current family. April can be shy at first and will need a family that’s willing to give her the time and space she needs to warm up. April is good with dogs, but not cat tested. Based on her personality, she would probably be fine with older (8+), respectful children. April would benefit from a routine with structure and a family willing to invest in basic training. She is good in the car.

As April has been living outside on the farm, she is looking for a family that will be patient with her while she adjusts to her new home. She may need also some help with potty training and leash walking.
Poor April has not had the easiest life and unfortunately lost part of her tail due to neglect. She was recently treated with antibiotics for ehrlichia - a common tick borne infection.

If you are interested in giving April the loving home she’s dreamt of for so long, please fill out an application at

April’s adoption fee $450. To learn more about our adoption fees and process, please visit our FAQs at

About Fetch & Releash

About Our Rescue Group...

We at Fetch & Releash believe every dog deserves a second chance regardless of age, breed, background, health and/or behavioural issues. Through our network of volunteers, foster homes, trainers, and veterinarians, we work hard to find our dogs the loving forever home they deserve.

Fetch & Releash was established in 2016 with a mission of saving homeless dogs. We are 100% volunteer run.

Our dogs come from a variety of different situations and locations such as pounds/shelters, strays, and surrendered pets - both locally and abroad. We provide our dogs with the best care and a chance to find their forever homes by placing them with loving and caring volunteer foster parents. In order to prevent further over-population, all pets are spayed or neutered, age and health permitting.

As a completely volunteer-based organization, we are only able to find our pets their forever homes with the help of our volunteers and donors. Visit to learn more about volunteering, fostering or donating.

Our Adoption Process...

To adopt one of our dogs, please fill out an application at Although we do our best to reply to all inquiries within 48 hours, please remember we are a 100% volunteer based organization, and many of us have full time jobs outside of rescue. We appreciate your patience.

Once your application has been received, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will contact you to set up a time to speak over the phone. The phone call usually takes about 30-45 minutes. Our priority is to ensure the fit is right for both you and the dog, so ask as many questions as you would like! After the phone interview, we will reach out to your personal and veterinarian references (if applicable), and your landlord (if applicable).

If we determine that you are a potential fit for the dog you applied for, you will then be granted a private meet and greet with the dog. If after the meet and greet, you would like to proceed with adoption, a Fetch & Releash volunteer will then contact you to arrange a home visit.

The adoption committee will then review your completed application and make a final decision.
