Please access our main website http://www.deaddogswalkingtn.com/ go to "dog adoption" page. Complete our adoption application/contract and click on "submit". One of our volunteers will contact you shortly by email. There is no obligation by completing the application nor does it guarantee an approved adoption. We will check vet references and personal references, if necessary. It is our goal to have a perfect match for your family as well as our dog.
We are a no-kill rescue determined to reduce the euthanasia rates at area high- kill shelters. We also accept adoptable, relinquished dogs from individuals whose life situations have changed. The poor economy has created an enormous problem and has forced many dog owners to give up their animals due to home foreclosure, loss of job, etc.
We are supporters of mandatory spay/neuter laws. Lack of laws has created the problems we have in rural southern counties.
We have been certified by the state of Tennessee as a non-profit corporation and have filed with the IRS for 501c3 status.
We exist totally on the generosity of others and gladly accept donations. They are tax deductible and much appreciated. Donations pay our vet costs, help purchase food for our foster animals and buy supplies for their care.
Can't adopt now? Won't you consider sponsoring a pet while in our care? Check out our "donation" page on our main website.
Dogs are transported from TN to New England by All Paws Transport or Alpha Dogs Transport. Both charge $140 for their services and is paid to them when your dog is claimed at one of their convenient locations. All vet/shot records will be delivered with your dog.
