After over 6 years, we will no longer be at Petco in Hermitage every Saturday and Sunday. We will be there ONLY the 1st and 3rd weekend of each month.

ADOPT YOUR BESTFRIEND! PLEASE READ DOWN TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE EVENT, DOGS ETC EACH WEEKEND!!!!!
Please email us if interested in a dog. We are getting 20+ calls a day and the volunteers all work. When the machine fills up we may miss calls from shelters or people needing help for animals in need! Several kill shelters are bringing darling dogs to the adoption event this weekend! Come see them at the Hermitage Petco!! Read down for specifics, and a link to see the dogs we know they are bringing for sure! Hope to see you there! We welcome volunteers and fosters! We need reliable volunteers to help at adoption events by helping set up tables/crates, walking and cleaning up after the dogs, and talking to potential adopters. We also need volunteers to coordinate fundraisers as so far we've not had any; grant writers; a website designer ( two have started to make one and months later it's not done only to knock out a couple of others that would have done it) and perhaps you have other ideas to help and we welcome you/them! Please email when you are ready to foster or help. Many write going to foster and then never follow through after we've committed to pulling a dog from the kill shelter for them as they must check with spouse etc. being all the fosters have dogs in addition to wasting time and possibly money on cell phone bills it makes another dog not come from the shelter possibly that another foster would have taken. We rotate adoption fee's from one dog to the next. We need donations from caring people who want to help us help the animals. No donations have been coming in and financially in order to continue with many medically needy, puppy mill dogs etc we now need help. We are always in need of monetary and product donations. All donations are tax deductible and receipts are given upon request, as we are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization
OUR WISH LIST:
We are always in need of supplies and monetary contributions for medical/long term care. Items needed are:
1. Better quality dog food 2. Dawn original dish detergent 3. Laundry detergent for HE machines 4. 13 gallon trash bags 5. Dog leashes, collars and toys 6. 10x10 outside kennels- especially should anyone have any of the iron type (even for sell reasonably) 7. Flea/ tick prevention such as Frontline Plus, Advantage Multi etc
Remember that your donation will be tax-deductible. This can be mailed to:
Kimber's Kritters PO BOX 41401 Nashville TN 37204 or paypal to Kimberskritters@aol.com
Help us help the dogs by ADOPTING*FOSTERING*VOLUNTEERING*FUNDRAISING*DONATING
Help solve the homeless dog/cat problem by spaying and neutering your own pets and telling others to also spay/neuter !! If you can't adopt or foster would you like to sponsor a dog going back and forth to the kill shelter? or one being in foster for a long time? If so please you may Paypal or mail a donation which is tax deductible! IF YOU NEED A TAX WRITE OFF PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO THE RESCUE. You can help by fostering as otherwise we are unable to save more dogs in kill shelters. We need reliable fosters that will see them through until they are adopted. Some aren't housebroken, some may need manners and some may bicker with your dog, and some are about perfect. We provide the crate, food, leash, collar etc for you to house them. Without fosters they are doomed... Help us help the innocent dogs that people have created problems and early death for please......
Read all the way to the bottom and then click on please see here to see dogs to adopt to see a great group the shelters are bringing! See you soon!
Who We Are
Kimber's Kritters is a small 501(c)(3) Non-Profit No-KILL Animal Rescue that rescues many dogs from kill shelters. Many are medically needy, puppy mill, hoarding, and special needs that are overlooked. In the state of Tennessee an owner surrender can be immediately put to sleep at a shelter if surrendered and otherwise 3 days. We receive no government funds nor corporate sponsorships although we welcome them. We need FOSTER HOMES,VOLUNTEERS, FUNDRAISERS, AND GRANTWRITERS!! Scroll down to view dogs! We are located in Middle TN. Any donations either monetary or supplies are tax deductible and a receipt will be furnished upon request. The board members, volunteers, and fosters range from retiree's and housewives to teachers and attorneys...all are welcome and needed to help :) Many have children that involved the parent in helping...it's great for children! We all believe the pet abuse and neglect needs remedied. We are shelterless and have foster homes all over! If you travel alot, can't afford a dog, just want a playmate for your dog or just have room in your heart and home to foster it's a great way to ad an extra pet with no charge to you. We provide a kennel, toys, food and medical care. You get a tax deduction for mileage to and from events etc. We pull dogs from high kill facilities all over the south that are about to be put to sleep. We rescue alot of Pit Bulls, mixed breeds, the medically needy (and from the general public as space in foster homes permits). Facilities call us when no one else wants the dog prior to putting the dog to sleep. We can only take as many as we have foster homes for :( The rescue then pays ALL the vetting and finds the dog a home :) When ONE dog is adopted we tell a facility they can send us another dog being put to sleep. In essence, you actually save TWO dogs lives when you adopt ONE dog!! We totally depend on our volunteers & fosters as there are NO PAID employee's. We need YOU to open your home to a dog we've saved, quarantined and that is ready for YOUR love and help to find his/her fairy tale home!! Someone wrote saying they bet this was profitable... Emotionally yes when you get them in their new awesome home..financially everyone involved is always in the hole! At a vet you would pay the following: Spaying/Neutering is around $100 +, Rabies $15, DHAPP Vaccine $30, office visit $35 +, fecal $15, deworming $30, heartworm test $35, heartworm treatment $300+, bordatella vaccine $20, many times we have to pay transportation fee's in addition to what the vets charge us! Our adoption fee is $175 unless they have had a dental, heartworm treatment etc and then it's higher. Unlike many rescues we DON'T charge a higher adoption fee as we have a purebred for adoption like some do. This is a total nonprofit rescue! The board members,volunteers and fosters do not make a dime. Our goal is no homeless pets where they are spayed and neutered and none are abused. Then all the rescues, shelters, fosters etc would be out of business :) Pet abuse and neglect is everyone's problem.
Future Plans & Goals
We would love to meet someone up north that would like to be involved in rescue. The dogs would be pre-adopted prior to coming up. We just need a contact and possibly short term fosters in case a new home didn't work out and people to do homechecks. If you can help with fundraising,grantwriting, a new website, logo etc please contact us...... "Together we can make a difference for the animals"
***ADOPTION DAY just about any day of the week*** Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and fosters that save lives everyday!
