Additional adoption info

At Act of Love Rescue, we take pride in our proactive screening process to match animals and people for compatibility, in addition to our evaluation and matching system focused on providing a positive experience for the adopter, and our mindset that places primary emphasis on education.

Our fees can vary but range from $250 to $400, and our principles at ALR are that;

• The animal will be spayed or neutered.
• No animal will be adopted to an applicant with a known history of animal or child abuse.
• No animal will be adopted to an individual who is suspected of being drunk or under the influence of drugs at the time of adoption.
• No animal will be adopted out as a food source.

About Act of Love Rescue - TN

ACT OF LOVE RESCUE (ALR), founded in February, 2016, is a federally tax exempt charitable nonprofit corporation headquartered in Norco, California, which provides a home for many small dogs (mostly Chihuahuas) that have been at risk for sheltering and ultimately, euthanasia.

As a small charity, our Founder and President, Cheryl Chavez has personally financed and invested tens-of-thousands of dollars over the past several years to transform her residential property in the agriculturally zoned area of Norco into a home for over twenty-five (25) dogs, several horses, and goats. Thus, requiring much food, medicine, and maintenance for a small farm.

With a successful permanent home adoption being the primary goal at ALR, we have several dogs now living and learning to be well-behaved domesticated pets after surviving an early life of abuse and neglect.

Our approach at Act of Love Rescue (ALR) is to rescue on the basis of "quality of life", and not the quantity of dogs. Thus, we're able to dedicate a reasonable level of attention and rehabilitation as they integrate, and share love with their new families.

All ALR dogs get a fresh, new start on their life. Our dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped with registration, up to date on all vaccines, dental needs, flea treated, and groomed as well. We teach them house manners, potty training, and socialization, but also work on various behavioral issues such as biting, food aggression, digging, chewing, and others.

It is our goal to identify the absolute best matched families for our dogs, and to always educate, even when interacting with non-adopting families.

Act of Love Rescue - TN's adopted pets

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Five Points, TN.

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.
