BFDR saves so many beautiful dogs who are about to be euthanized due to expensive health problems and/or no more room in a shelter. These people spend countless hours saving the lives of these beautiful animals. They always seem to manage to save some poor dog at the last minute even though they don't really have the money. I respect these people very much.

Big Fluffy raises the benchmark on how to be a successful rescue organization. Using a 'no dog left behind' can-do attitude even when their resources are stretched beyond capacity, these folks say "what else is possible" every single day. If I lived in Tennessee, I would volunteer because I want to be around people that are inspiring, decisive and ok, damn funny. I live for the witty social media posts that highlight their dogs' stories, before/afters and things going on. Seriously, those posts alone could be compiled and sold in a book. Creative fundraising, BIG out of the box thinking, I just love these people. Call me smitten and unabashed fan forever.

I adopted my beloved senior dog from them last summer. The women of BFDR work their 'tails' off without pay to save as many lives as possible. My dog is the biggest blessing in my life all thanks to the hard work and dedication of BFDR volunteers. She came into rescue horribly neglected and abused and BFDR rehabbed her to give her a second chance at life.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

life changing ways.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

get them more funding and more volunteers to keep up their amazing work
