Union City, TN

Our Mission

Donations for care and vetting can be made via Paypal to or mailed to PO Box 62, Union City, TN  38281.

Diamonds in the Ruff Pound Pups is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit rescue group that rescues animals from kill shelters as well as stray, abandoned, injured, and neglected animals throughout Obion County in NW TN.  If any of these dogs is a pet you lost, please contact the rescue.  The rescue will not return a dog to you unless you can provide proof of ownership including photos of you with your pet, veterinary records showing you provided state-required rabies vaccinations and other routine care, and you must pay any and all veterinary and boarding expenses incurred by the rescue during the time they cared for your lost pet. 

All of our pets would welcome a donation toward their foster care until they find a forever home. You may donate at to Thank you for your kindness and generosity.

Adoption Policy

Our adoption fee of $300 helps to cover the cost of basic veterinary care, age-appropriate vaccinations, heartworm and fecal tests, spay or neuter and microchip. We do request that the adopter get the final set(s) of shots if adopting a puppy that has not yet had all the shots recommended for full immunity. We recommend that the puppy be kept off the ground in public places until all shots have been given. We require that the puppy be spayed or neutered if not already done prior to adoption. Refusal to do so will result in denial of your adoption request. If the animal has required medical care above and beyond the norm, the adoption fee could be higher.  Fees are sometimes lower for certain dogs, so please inquire.  If we are unable to arrange for volunteer transport for adoptions outside our area, it will be necessary for us to arrange for paid transport at a cost of approximately $140. Completion of an adoption application is required to begin the adoption process. The link to our online adoption application is
