Adopting a Pet

Enjoying unconditional love is one of the greatest joys of life and there is no better place than through the love of an animal. The adoption process is one that benefits both the animal and the adopter by adding a companion to your life that will always love you.

MakING a Donation

Traveling Tails is supported through your donations where 100% of the donation goes to the benefit of the animals. All of the TTDR team is volunteer-based and focused on finding good homes for animals that would never know the comfort of daily meals, and a roof over their heads.

What Drives Us

Our Mission

Traveling Tails Dog Rescue is dedicated to helping abandoned, abused and neglected dogs find loving, forever homes. We are dedicated to finding every dog the best life possible and compassion, love, and quality life.

  • Tennessee

We accept fosters from all over the U.S. If you are interested in fostering, please fill out the application and we will be in touch.

Shelter Partners

TTDR partners with many organizations to help find animals in need of our help.

Finding Pets a Home

We believe that every animal deserves a loving home. We work with dozens of volunteers with our fosters and each animal gets an opportunity to have a life with a furever home. Adopters can see our available animals or participate as fosters in a foster to adopt. 

Spay & Neuter

We take the pet population seriously and all of the animals adopted through TTDR are spayed and neutered as part of the adoption requirements. Donations to the rescue go to help cover these fees for each animal.
