Raise $$ for pets when you walk!
Also see the Animal Tales app!

The team behind the ResQwalk app launched Animal Tales, an iOS & Android app that enables users to create 16-page illustrated storybooks featuring their pet. It’s simple, it’s fun, and 20% of the proceeds from every book sold will go into the ResQwalk weekly donation pool.

For every download of the app Animal Tales will donate $1 to our rescue (there is $30,000 up for grabs). Help us raise much needed funds for our rescue. Get the app here: http://goo.gl/LqboF6

Help us keep the pet food pantry open!
Sponsors needed NOW!!!

  • Here's what one pet owner has to say: "My wife and I thank you from the depth of our hearts for giving us dog food each month. The two of us live on only my disability, we are truly poor, but we choose to share our lives with our wonderful dogs. We had the dogs, well, all but one of them, before my disability hit me. So getting rid of a family member was just not an option for us. We would do without food before we gave up any of our "family". Your monthly help has made a HUGE difference in our lives and we just can't thank you enough. God bless." --Steve Evans, Elizabethton

  • Cost of the pet food pantry is about $500 per month. Sponsorships are $500, $250, or $175.
    Contact 423-437-3850 for details.
  • Let's keep these pets with their families and
    OUT of the shelter!

Take a LOOK at the wonderful pets looking for homes at FurSuthernLuv on Petfinder, and see their web page.

We NEED FOSTERS to help more pets!
Please consider opening your heart & home!

Pets like Maxine NEED YOU....


When she first came to us, Maxine was pregnant and unable to eat regular food because of her damaged jaw. Maxine's got a loving home now, but there are plenty of pets out there that still need care--everything from
ear mites to major surgery--that their owners
just can't afford.
You can help us keep them with their families
