Areas Real Good Dog Rescue Serves

We are physically located in Memphis,TN. We are hoping to expand our adoptions to the Northeast U.S. We now have two highly reliable commercial transport companies who safely transport WEEKLY to the northeast states. We offer home fostered pets rescued from shelters or the streets and we specialize in the smaller mixed breeds I call "Disney" dogs. We feel our foster program allows an excellent opportunity to match a pet to your needs and make a long distance adoption much less risky.

Real Good Dog Rescue's Adoption Process

We have an online adoption application and this starts our process. Locally, we meet the adopter after approving the application to make sure everyone is compatible. For a long distance application to be approved, we rely heavily on a history of past pet care as verified by a veterinarian. Our adoption agreement states that the animal will be treated as a family member, given all necessary wellness care and emergency care and that if you are no longer able to care for the pet, you will notify the director of Real Good Dog Rescue about your need to rehome the pet.

About Real Good Dog Rescue

We are an all volunteer rescue organization with NO physical facility. We depend on individuals to foster the dogs in their home. The rescue was started by a native Memphian who wanted to do as much as possible to reduce the number of fine pets euthanized annually at our high kill Memphis Animal Shelter. Over the past ten years, we have accepted a lot more found dogs and owner surrendered pets that never had to go to a shelter. We accept what we feel we can live with and find homes for. We can't do nearly enough until spay/neuter laws and responsible pet owners outnumber the irresponsible pet owners.
