Who We Are

Visit our website: Love Me Tender Animal Rescue is a grass roots organization dedicated to helping abused and abandoned animals in middle TN and promoting low cost spay/neuter to help control the animal population. LMTAR services a mostly poor and rural community where there is no form of animal control. There is no animal shelter, so our organization has a foster care program to address the needs of abandoned pets. Unfortunately, we are overwhelmed with more pets than we have foster homes. Due to a lack of resources and foster homes, we cannot accept dogs from people needing to relinquish their pets or take in a stray dog or cat outside of our community at this time. However, we assist with donated dog&cat food, housing, and straw bedding for the poor and elderly, especially in winter when heating costs soar and many people can't afford pet food. Our volunteers check dogs living on chains to insure they have necessary food, water and shelter. We work to educate people about the basic care to make the folks more responsible pet owners, but it is hard, because this is a poor area and animals are low on the priority list. We know we can't save all the animals, but we can work to improve the lives of those in our little part of the world. Because of our rural population, resources are very limited. We depend on individual donations to support our efforts. LMTAR is all volunteer, and donations go directly to help the animals and are tax deductible.
