Have you ever wondered what part you and your family might play in pet rescue and adoption? Pet adoption is easy and heartwarming for you and the Pet you rescue.

Together, we can change the world, even if only in a seemingly small way, by changing the life of a once-forgotten and unloved pet in need. Bringing a lost or neglected rescue animal into your home gives the gift of compassion and hope for a forgotten rescued pet.

We work with local County Shelters and Rescue Groups in East Tennessee to bring awareness to the growing need to find permanent loving homes for our furry friends.

Please view the adoptable dogs and cats below. These pets are available for adoption through our local County Shelters and Rescue Groups in East Tennessee.

Most of these organizations upload their local Pets of the Week and their Pet of the Month. Each Pet has a photo and story. Please research the websites listed below to find pets to adopt.

Adopted pets can bring joy, unconditional love, and companionship to those who open their homes and hearts in love. What part would you like to play in local pet adoption? Contact us for additional information, and together, we can find loving homes for our little friends.
