WERE NOT ACCEPTING ANY ANIMALS
This email address is only for inquiries on adoptions and making donations.
NOT for contacting us to except a dog you have found or no longer want.
This Rescue turns down over a dozen requests a week. We just don't have the
funds or resources to take any more in, so all we can do is adopt out to reduce our numbers.
Since we aren't taking any new animals in at this Facility.
Emailing us will only delay your quest in trying to find a new home for your dog or cat.
We have to delete all requests to surrender any animals at this time.
WE JUST CAN'T TAKE ANYMORE IN - SORRY...
Due to a sever drop in donations we have to reduce our numbers on what we can care for.
Until Donations pick-up we are no longer excepting any more animals at this facility.

H.E.A.R. is happy to announce the adoption of "Pinky" (on the left) getting adopted and will even have her own big sister to play with.
As you can see by the photo she is excited about leaving to her new forever home. I really like this family that adopted Pinky
becasue they are all very close and excellent suport in case Pinky's new mom has to work late or running behind. Pinky will either
be taken to a doggy day care or the young Ladies Mom and Dad will step up and baby sit until she gets back. I am totally secure
that Pinky will be cared for and loved the rest of her life.
Nita (the lady you see hugging Ruby) had an English Pointer a few Months ago that had passed
away due to cancer. Her life seemed empty without her best friend by her side. Nita wasn't sure
if she wanted to adopt again because of the heart ache she went through with her last dog.
She looked around but didn't see any dog that hit her fancy. Then she did a dog search on Petfinder.com
and Ruby popped up which looked almost identical to her last dog. She contacted me at the Rescue and
we made arrangements to meet. When she met Ruby, Ruby grabbed her heart and never let go.
It was love at first sight, they both took to each other and became instant best friends. Nita now has a best
buddy again. Ruby will never replace her last dog who was with her many years, but Ruby will find another
spot in Nita's heart and be loved and cared for the rest of her life. I am so happy they found each other.
Another happy ending from Happy Endings Animal Rescue
She is a great house size dog at about 35-40 lbs (considered a medium) and loves to hang out with the family
and watch TV or watch you work on the computer. She will lay by your feet and wait for that pat on the head.
If your interested in adopting Roxie for your family pet, please scroll down to the bottom of our website
and check out our adoption qualifications. Were pretty much looking for local families who own their own
home and have a secure fenced in back yard. Roxie has already been spayed so she's ready to go.

By You Donating to this Rescue, your not only helping to care for the animals
but your also helping us get this Rescue to get back on it's feet again helping
the homeless animals of Nashville and providing a safe place for their recovery.
When a dog reaches their retirement years, chances of finding a new forever home drop considerably.
With that said H.E.A.R. has started a program to find homes for our senior dogs by seeking senior citizens
who are looking for a companion to keep them company. Some of our senior dogs are great couch potatoes
and some are still very active who love to go for walks. If you know of someone who could benefit from adopting
a senior dog, please let us know about your situation. I know we have the perfect dog for you. We have also
reduced our normal adoption fee from $100.00 to just $50.00 on any senior dog and promise to take back that
dog for any reason at any time should plans change with the adoptive family or person who adopts a senior dog.
We currently have 17 Senior Dogs ready for adoption - we don't have any tiny lap dogs at this time.
The dogs we currently have are medium to large to x-large in size and will require a fenced back yard.
I grabbed Buck and put him in our Rescue Van and headed back to the Rescue. The first thing I did was feed him with canned food,
fresh water to drink and gave him a little one on one attention. He ate and ate and filled himself up. I set up his dog house and
put some cedar chips in his new home. He walked right in and did about 2 circles and laid down, looked over at me and went to sleep.
Buck knew he was safe.
The next day I went to see him and assess his skin and hair loss issues and thought the best thing for him was to put
him on medication to clear up his skin and flush his system of worms. He needed time to heal. Over the weeks he
became more healthier and started to play again. I noticed his skin clearing up and hair was starting to grow back.
It took about 3 months of treatment,but eventually his skin totally cleared up and all his hair grew back.
Buck was fortunate he got a chance to come to H.E.A.R. and recuperate his heath issues and just be a dog and make new friends.
If the Pound would of caught him and since he was an abandoned dog with no home the Pound would of just put him to sleep.
This is a sad reality, but fortunate for Buck he did get a chance to come to H.E.A.R. and now he is back to normal.
He still has some issues and will need a little more time to come around from the abuse he must of gone through.
He only started to truly trust me after a few weeks. If your interested in Adopting Buck. He Looks about 10-12 years old,
he has not been neutered and only gets along with dogs that are smaller than him. He is very protective of his yard
from other male dogs. So if you would like to offer Buck a home where he will be loved the rest of his life. Let us know what
sort of forever home you have to offer him. We do require you to be a home owner with a secure fenced in back yard.
He is a Newfoundland / Chow Mix Dog with a beautiful black shinny coat and loves to be petted. He weighs about 60 lbs.
He is NOT potty trained and has pretty much lived his whole life outside. He does have a lot of love to give the right person.
I would only consider him going to a single dog home or a home with a dog who weighs no more than 35 pounds.
This way Buck can be King of the yard and will be a great family dog in time.
Check out our Adoption Qualifications listed below and let us know if you would like to Adopt Buck.
We Rescue the Ones other Shelters or Rescues didn't want to.
That why it's so Important that you give what you can to save Dogs like Buck.
They deserve a Forever Home, Love and a Family just like any other Dog.
Once we receive and look over your email and do a Google earth search on your property we will then
send you our application. You must live within 20 miles of Madison, TN 37115 we will then contact
you to set up a time to bring the dog by your home to see if the dog likes your new home and you like the dog.
If all goes well then you simply pay the adoption fee and we offer a 90 day return policy on any adoption.
If for any reason your not happy with the dog, simply return them within those 90 days for a full refund.
Any other expenses you may have spent are not covered under this return policy.
After 90 days, we will still take back any H.E.A.R. dog for as long as they live.
We don't do out of area or out of State adoptions.
