Please call 731-632-1603 or 731-727-4165 with questions about any of our adoptable pets.
***All Adoption Days postponed until volunteers are available!!! Next adoption day will be *Unknown* at Petco in Jackson. Out of-town Adoption Days are usually the 1st & 3rd Saturday of each month at Petco, 187 Stonebrook Place, Jackson, TN 38305. On other weekend dates and for special events we also go to at Petsense, 1663 Virginia Lane, Corinth, MS 38834 or Tractor Supply, 195 Water Street Savannah, TN 38372. From time to time we will also try to hold adoption days at Wal-Mart on Hwy 64E in Savannah. If you see one of our adoptables that you would like to have brought to an adoption event, just call Mary at 731-727-4165 or 731-632-1603 at least one day in advance. During inclement (too hot, too stormy, too cold) weather, we're inside. Come in and see us. Onsite adoption without appointment weekdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. except Sunday and offsite adoption days. Please call first to be sure someone will be available to show you all the wonderful dogs. On facebook see photos of the dogs on either Mary Davis or Tennessee River Rescues links. This past weekend's offsite adoption was on April 14, 2012 at Tractor Supply in Savannah.
We need volunteers to help plan and work towards a major annual fundraiser. Please let us know if you are willing to help.
Mary Davis, founder of Tennessee River Rescues, works day and night to save and care for dogs in Hardin County, TN. We hope to adopt out or find rescue groups to place these dogs in good homes. The dogs may come from the local municipal high kill animal shelter, many dogs come in when the shelter is overcrowded and refuses them, others are owner turn-ins and/or strays. As space and donations allow, more dogs are brought in to our foster care. The municipal animal shelter does not accept "county" dogs so many of these dogs end up at Tennessee River Rescues as space allows. The less fortunate are dumped in rural areas or on shopping center parking lots and left to fend for themselves. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the IRS. We are an IRS - 501 (c) (3) qualified non-profit organization.
Adoption Fees for Dogs: $75 to $200. Spayed or neutered, up-to-date vaccinations. We are always OVERFLOWING and will reduce adoption fees on longer term pets if you meet all other requirements. Some medium and large dogs are available for lower adoption fee to qualified adopters. Fees for puppies and special "in-demand" breeds are usually higher. The cost of caring for each dog, whether or not he or she is adoptable, must be covered. Those hard-to-adopt dogs receive the same care as the easily adopted and cost just as much to have spayed or neutered, wormed, vaccinated, and to provide food and housing. We are a non-profit and funding is always needed to help all of the dogs in our care by providing veterinary care, food, supplies, and medicines to keep them healthy.
Some of our adoptable pets are also shown at 1-800-Save-A-Pet. Here's the link: http://www.1-800-save-a-pet.com/shelter71835-pets.html
