Our Mission

We are a small rescue group dedicated to the adoption of CARE rescue puppies. We have been rescuing for 15 years this year 2024! We rescued from the Covington, TN City Pound as it is a kill pound for 14 of those 15 years. The city pound has now been closed and CARE is rescuing dogs from the Tipton County Tn Shelter. We have rescued over 4000 dogs now from the Covington City pound and surrounding Tipton county area. We are 100 percent volunteer and it is all about getting the dogs to safety. We do not have a shelter location, we have foster homes so adoptions are done through meet and greets.

Adoption Process:
1. Go to to fill out an application. Follow the adoption Tab instructions.

3. All references will be checked.
4. A local meet and greet can be set up prior to an adoption.
5. If the dog is not a match, a CARE member may suggest a different dog that would be better suited to your family. CARE reserves the right to not adopt if not in the best interest of the dog.
6. Once the adoption is confirmed a $150.00 adoption fee is paid prior to the adoption of the CARE dog if you are local. If you are needing transport, the adopter will pay the additional health certificate fees and the transport fee.
