About Recycled Best Friends

Our Director has been in rescue over 21 years. She was the VP of our local area adoption center for 6 years (Humane Society of the TN Valley). She is also the TN Director of SOS Beagle Rescue for the past 8 years. In our wirk with over 30 area shelters and many other rescue groups we are often asked to help non beagles and beagle mixes. That is why Recycled Best Friends started over 6 years ago.
