For the Love of Dogs

Our Mission

After many years of rescuing all breeds and ages, For the Love of Dogs is now focusing on rescuing smaller senior dogs. We are still full because there have been so many senior babies left behind when their families can no longer care for them.  We are an all-breed rescue and have mostly middle aged to senior dogs of all sizes. Please consider fostering a dog even if you can't adopt, and please spay or neuter your pets.

For the Love of Dogs exists solely through donations. Donations are tax deductible. We rescue mostly senior dogs who may not be adopted as quickly as younger dogs. Donations are necessary to provide medical care for these sweet senior babies through no fault of their own have been surrendered to a shelter.

Donations may be made through Paypal at or checks may be mailed to For the Love of Dogs, PO Box 663, Dayton, TN 37321.

Adoption Policy

Due to increase in COVID-19 cases in our local area, most adoptions are on hold. I am in a high risk category and consider my safety above everything right now.

If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs in Tennessee, please send an e-mail to for an application. The adoption fees range from $100 - $200 depending on age of the dog if adopted locally. The fee includes spay/neuter, all vaccinations, heartworm check, deworming, and flea/tick preventative.

Because our dogs are mostly over 12 years old, we prefer to restrict adoptions to local area around Chattanooga, TN. We do make exceptions, but prefer them to stay local.

Once an application has been approved, we can make arrangements to meet.
