Our Mission

Grassroots Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer rescue that works to aid high kill shelters and local communities in North Mississippi by rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing dogs (and occasionally other animals) that have been overlooked in shelters or are in danger of being euthanized. We also work to rescue dogs from local communities in need.

Grassroots Animal Rescue of Mississippi, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. GAR is also recognized as a non-profit in good standing by the State of Mississippi. All of your contributions are tax-deductible.

Adoption Policy

Thanks for considering adoption! If you have questions about or are interested in meeting an animal, please email us at to set up a meeting.

We are a foster-based rescue. We do not have a shelter facility that you can visit; all of our animals live in foster homes. 

If you decide you are interested in one of our pets, please fill out an application at After your application is processed, an adoption coordinator will contact you to set up a meeting. 

Please email us at to begin the adoption process. 

All of our animals are spayed or netuered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, and current on flea / heartworm prevention before adoption. All of our adopters are offered 30 days of complimentary emergency pet insurance through our microchip partner 24PetWatch.
