PAWS TN Adoption Application


The average cost of vaccinations, deworming, micro chipping, spay/neuter, heartworm testing and a month’s care is $200. If your dog’s expenses are covered by your adoption fee, the remainder of the fee goes straight to the dogs to pay for food, medical care and the dogs’ daily needs. Your fee helps us rehabilitate a dog with long term needs or save a weak puppy. You might be buying time and life for a large dog, a black dog, or a shy dog, a dog whose life is not a financial practicality. When you adopt one of our dogs, you aren’t buying a pet; you are supporting our life saving rescue work.

Please understand that we are a volunteer based organization and will get back to you as soon as we can - the average adoption takes about a week, sometimes sooner, sometimes longer.
