Our mission is to reduce the pet over population problem and mass euthanasia in the south through rescue, spay/neuter, adoption and education. Without our northern angels who choose to adopt these southern sweeties, more of these adorable, innocent animals would end up in landfills.
Adopters must be 21 or older to adopt. You must start by submitting the application. We then contact the references you list on your application. If you are approved to adopt, we will contact you to conduct a phone interview. Once you are approved we put you in touch with the pup’s foster parent to ensure a perfect match. Most of these pups are still in TN and won’t travel north until their adoptions are finalized. Once everyone is comfortable adopters pay the adoption fee via shelterluv. Then adopters sign an adoption contract. Once the fee is paid and contract is signed, then we schedule the transport. We typically use HEARTS.llc.com or Red Fern Ranch to transport our rescued pets to their new homes. Total fees include age appropriate vaccines, tests, spay/neuter, heartworm prevention, flea/tick prevention, microchip, and any other vetting we have deemed necessary and the transport charge. The fees are typically $500-$650 but can vary slightly.
