My story

Let me introduce Melvin Douglas. This sweet little guy is about 1.5 years old, approximately 35 lbs. He is a sweet, loving and social fellow. He does have an old injury to his right eye which has caused some vision impairment, but it doesn't slow him down...he loves to play, cuddle and just be your best buddy

More about this rescue

Rookie's Rescue is committed to helping abandoned, neglected and abused pets, finding loving homes and educating the public about responsible pet ownership with a strong emphasis on spaying and neutering. . Rookie's Rescue is a virtual shelter, meaning all of our pets live in loving foster homes, not a facility/shelter environment. All of the pets available are located in foster homes in TN. WHERE DO OUR PETS COME FROM? Rookie' Rescue saves pets from over crowded shelters and animal control facilities, who due to lack of space and overwhelming volume are forced to euthanize thousands of healthy, adoptable pets each year. We will also accept pets from owners who can no longer care for their pet. When the animal enters our program, they undergo a complete health check from a local vet to make sure the pet is healthy. The pet is treated for any medical needs, is brought up to date on all vaccinations and is spayed or neutered. The pet is then socialized and assessed by our behaviorist. When the animal has been determined healthy and socialized, it is placed for adoption.
