Tennessee Animal Rescue & Shelter - NASHVILLE Chapter's adoption process

Additional adoption info

We begin with an application, and then conduct an interview to verify that you will be providing a safe and loving home for your new pet. We have an adoption contract that is required
upon adoption of an animal. It states that you must adequately take care of the animal which includes shelter, confinement if necessary, and proper nutrition. Our adoption fee is $450
to New England, which includes transport to a stop via The adopter must be able to meet at one of these stops to pick up your new family member. The
$450 fee covers transport, health certificate, all vaccinations (1st and 2nd only for puppies under 6 months), and spay/neuter for dogs/cats over 6 months.
If your adopted pet is too young to spay/neuter prior to adoption, a deposit will be required, and will be returned to you once your pet is over 6 months and your vet has performed the
procedure. We do require a separate spay/neuter contract in this case.

About Tennessee Animal Rescue & Shelter - NASHVILLE Chapter

Tennessee Animal Rescue and Shelter Inc. was founded to help alleviate the suffering of animals. There are way too many animals that are abandoned, neglected, or abused by no
fault of their own in our rural area. This shelter plans to help these animals get the homes they deserve through rehabilitation and proper education.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
