Jeff Tarpley Rescue is a full time rescue effort dedicated to helping dogs. All dogs for adoption are rescued from shelters or owner surrenders. Puppies under 4 months old are vaccinated and dewormed several times. A spay/neuter contract is required for adoption. The vetting of an adult dog includes spay/neuter, vaccinations including rabies, and heartworm testing. Dental work and treatment of heartworms, cherry eye, mange, parvo exposure and broken limbs are some examples of what is done to save lives. Shot and medical records come with the dog upon adoption and include the last date heartworm prevention was administered.
We require all potential adopters to submit an application found at this location:
A completed adoption application and, upon approval, an adoption contract is required. Jeff Tarpley Rescue welcomes applications from homeowners and condo or apartment dwellers. At a minimum a phone interview will be conducted and a vet reference checked before the applicant may meet their preferred pet.
We adopt primarily in the 4 states of the ArkLaTexOma. Applicants willing to travel to Texarkana will also be considered with additional requirements to qualify as approved.
