Are you looking for a little buddy to follow you around and keep you company? Meet Ollie! Ollie is someone who isn’t very jumpy and does the sweetest little happy dance at meal time! Ollie would love to be SPOILED. And I mean spoiled rotten. He would love to be allowed on furniture, kissed, cuddled, and hugged. He responds fast to correction when he hears the neighbor's dogs bark and wants to chime in. He is smart and learns really fast! He sits for meals and goes to the restroom outdoors.

Did I mention. He is super squishy too?? He’s 4½ months old, has been vetted and is due back for his next shots in about 10 days. We will have him neutered before his adoption is finalized.

Are you that special someone? If you think so, please contact Charice Davis for an application: or call 865-315-2989. He will not be first-come, first-serve, but go to the best fit for him. A 2-week trial and home visit will be required -- this is a special baby! [Posted 8/7/2022]

Akira is our sweet, 11-month-old husky mix who was rescued from being a stray. She loves to play, go for walks, and spend time with her owners. She is a very loving girl and is always up for anything... from snuggling on the couch to going on an adventure outdoors. She is currently working on potty training, but is beginning to get the hang of it very quickly! She is good with other dogs as far as we can tell, and she is most definitely a social butterfly. She loves everyone she comes in contact with! Akira needs a home with lots of love and attention, and preferably a fenced yard! She is set to be spayed soon, and will be ready for her furever home! Adoption inquiries may email Kylie at or contact me at 615.812.4034! [Posted 7/25/2022]

Looking for someone to keep your lap warm, with soft purrs and gentle biscuit-making? Lucy is your girl! Looking for some entertainment? Give this Lucy Lady a bit of catnip and she will throw her toy mice in the air and then pounce on them when they land! She loves to play!

Lucy is an older lady, but has many good years ahead of her as an indoor-only cat. She loves to be brushed and even bathed. A little history...she was living on the streets and severely malnourished, until a kind veterinarian spent 3 months nursing her back to health at the clinic. Taken home by a vet assistant, we learned she needs to be the only cat. Due to unrest in her multi-cat home, she's looking for her fur-ever home and bff to cuddle on the couch with. Please email or call 865-315-2989 to arrange to meet and adopt Lucy. [Posted 6/12/2022]

Sally is a 3.5-year-old female lab/terrier mix (been told she looks part pit). I adopted her from Tulsa Animal Shelter in June 2020. She is fixed and up to date on all her vaccines. She weighs 50 pounds and is good with people--very loving and always wants to cuddle. She is good with kids but never been around babies. She has reactivity issues with other dogs and harmed another dog in my apartment complex, which is why I am being forced to rehome her or be evicted. It made me realize she needs more space/time/attention and I cannot give her that because I took a new job and am working 60 hours/week. She is crate-trained, potty-trained, leash-trained and knows sit, wait, place, down, heel, and break.

She would be best suited for a calm home, likely with a divide between pets at introduction. She does okay after she has met new dogs through a fence--at doggy daycare they separate her through a fence so she can smell/gauge the others before letting her join the play. She sleeps a lot but also loves to run. She is accustomed to being left alone about 6 hours at time until the dog walker comes to take her out.

Sally is a wonderful girl. She has been doing obedience/aggression training at OLK9 in Knoxville and has completed 3/7 weekly lessons. The remaining lessons are paid for and I hope her new family will continue them so she will be more calm and not reactive any more. Please email or call 909-477-0507 immediately if you can provide the loving home that Sally needs. [Posted 5/21/2022]

Mickey D
Mickey Dee (that handsome black fella) has had over a month of training, socializing, and hands on work PLUS he's recently neutered. He says he's ready for a home. He wants to walk the red carpet.

This guy is special. Black pits have zero chance in the system. His temperament is amazing. Obviously he loves dogs. He loves cats too-but plays WAAAY too rough with them; however he's learning quickly and is completely comfortable around them. We will be picky about the home he goes to. He will be a family member.

Please share--a thousand times today. This dog was rescued by a musician friend in Nashville from the streets who certainly saved him from being euthanized. His best story is about to be told. Let's write him a happy ending. Go on, give us a call or shoot us an email! Mickey Dee can't wait to meet you! Email or call 865-315-2989. [Updated 6/5/2022]

Nia is a 4-year-old female, recently-spayed chow/husky mix. She is up to date on vaccines and current on heartworm prevention and is heartworm-negative. She is learning leash walking and commands. She is very sweet and affectionate and loves her toys! She is shy of men and would require a quiet calm man to adjust. She does good with pretty much all women and will quickly warm up. Nia requires some time to introduce to other dogs and does best with chill boy dogs. She is most definitely an alpha female dog. Nia will chase cats, so best for her to not live with cats. This girl is gorgeous and soft as a stuffed animal. Please email if you are interested in meeting Nia. [Posted 5/5/2022]

Ernie is a 2-year-old male neutered blue tabby with tan undertones. He was trapped with a feral colony and quickly decided people were ok by him. He has been fully vaccinated and has been neutered, tested, dewormed and is up to date on prevention. He loves pets and is good with other cats. He was a skinny boy, so he is eating like a pig still. He seems unconcerned regarding dogs. While Ernie enjoys petting, being picked up is out of his comfort zone. He may adjust with time, but picking him up will cause him to try to get away. Would you like to add this sweet boy to your home? He is big and already 10 pounds. Please email if you are interested in meeting Ernie. [Posted 5/1/2022]

Helloooooo nice person! I'm Bob! You say you're looking for a dog??? That's amazing! Because I am a dog! You say you knew that? That you came here to the rescue group looking for ME? Truly? You saw me on Facebook or Petfinder when your friend shared my link on their page, and said I was a handsome, old boy in Tennessee who needed someone JUST LIKE THEM to be totally happy for the rest of his life? Well, isn't that amazing! I guess that means we're going to be best friends FOREVER!

Bob is a 10-years-young Lab and hound mix and is living at a boarding kennel where he was abandoned 4 years ago. It just so happens that this kennel is owned by one of the best trainers in the region, so Bob is complety trained, and some lessons will be included in his adoption at no extra charge. Bob is neutered, up to date on vaccines, energetic, happy-go-lucky, and has loads of love and affection to give. If you think you are able to give Bob the family that he has always wanted, please give us a call. Charice Davis 865-315-2989 or email [Posted 4/19/2022]

My name is Prissy. I need a new, wonderful home. My elderly parent just passed away in January. I am a sweet cuddle bug that has plenty of love to give. I love belly rubs and to be close to my owner. I am around 8 to 10 years old and weigh 33 lbs. I was a shelter dog, so we're not sure of my exact age. My only fault is that I need to be an only dog. I do not do well with other dogs. This makes my human sister extremely sad because she wants to keep me, but she has 3 dogs of her own. If you have room in your heart for me, I have plenty of love for you. By the way, I am used to being spoiled. You can contact my sister, Diane, at 865-924-0055. [Posted 4/14/2022]

Happy Tails -- Pets Adopted or Pending


Take a look at this handsome guy! Rocco is a 9-month-old Australian shepherd mix. Not much is known about Rocco’s pup-hood, but we imagine he was a cute little guy. Right now, Rocco’s favorite things are running, playing outside, enjoying sunny spots, and getting extra attention from the ladies working in the kennels. He also enjoys trying to lie on everyone’s laps, even though he might be too big. Rocco loves to show off his tricks to everyone with a treat in hand or an ear-rub to offer.

Rocco can be a bit fearful and needs training but is very sweet once he gets to know you. He is a Lab/Australian shepherd mix, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm-negative, and on prevention. He will sit, shake, take treats, be petted, and likes to be brushed (not so keen on the nail trims). Per previous owner he likes to chase cats, so he would be better in a home without cats.

Luna Daisy & Mario Luigi
null Sassy Peach
4/16/2022-- Only Peach is now available! All the others are in their forever homes pending final adoption. Super playful! Mountain cur and hound mix. These little cuties are approximately 6 weeks old (March 15) and are so cute they might just break your heart. They were found out in the woods in a dilapidated, abandoned trailer with their mama. Mama is a stray and was too thin to feed them, so they went straight to their foster home, where they are now safe and warm. All pups will receive their puppy shots and spay/neuters before being permanently adopted. If you're interested in making one or more of these little babies part of your family, call Charice at 865-315-2989 or email at, but hurry...they won't last long!
