Mission Statement

Our Mission is simple and clear cut and is to: provide rescue and adoption services provide foster care services provide community outreach and education services provide owner retention services provide access to discounted training, medication, spay/neuter and microchipping services provide every pet we encounter with love, care and compassion. keep animals off of euthanasia lists across Tennessee. operate an ecommerce and physical shop and collect donations to cover expenses of animals, inventory, utilities, facilities and staff.


As caring, professional and reputable pet rescuers we follow recommended guidelines that ensure our pets have loving temperaments - they simply can’t wait to meet their new owners! As long as you treat your new pet with love and respect, they will do the same back. As a team, we are dedicated to doing our best for our pets and, of course, our adoption families and supporters. ​Many of the animals who remain at the shelter or in foster participate in our therapy, adoption and educational outreach programs to facilitate adequate interaction and stimulation.

Our goals in our educational outreach programs focus on Retention, Training, and Health Education. We work hard to educate about the importance of spay/neuter and microchipping.
