As trainers we have worked with Rescues from all over the US. Without a doubt Tennessee Death Row Dogs is a rare find. They go above and beyond in every way to help save the lives of dogs that no one else will. These dogs are the ones that other rescues will not even think about taking, and are then left to die in the shelter.
This Rescue takes these dogs and provides not just basic needs, but finding the best possible home for these dogs in order to secure the future that they deserve. Once they pull a dog they make a commitment to them to do everything in their power to ensure them a warm safe loving environment, and one that will not put them in a shelter the way that their last home did.
A lot of the dogs that are brought into TDRD are not in the best shape physically or mentally. Some of the dogs have taken several months for them to get back on their feet from their ailments, yet TDRD never gave up on any of them. It is often the opposite, they rally around them. This is to ensure that even though they are in the hospital they feel the love from the the rescue and the volunteers.
They have put different programs in place to help the dogs through this transition period. My favorite program is The Rescue Buddy. This is where the dogs that have been there longer are paired up with a volunteer that will take them out and come see them. It is such an amazing experience to watch these dogs come to life when they are able to get out and just be dog!
Tennessee Death Row Dogs also works with several different trainers based on their needs to help with anything that may need polishing before being placed into a new home. The great thing about this is that you get a different variety of training that is tailored to the dog, instead of just a cookie cutter response. They go to a whole different level to secure the best for these dogs.
Every single person that we have been in contact in the rescue has been extremely invaluable with their time, and responses to anything that we have brought to them. They are dedicated to saving the lives of the ones that were forgotten and left behind!
Only the most awesome charity to deal with! They really go above and beyond for the dogs they rescue . My rescue KOA was left for dead and in bad shape, three bullet wounds scares all over his neck, after a long process getting dewormed and healthy, next he spent many days being doing rehabilitation. After six months I met my new best friend and the folks at Tennessee Death Row Dogs stay on contact with us to see how he is doing and they love u date pics.
I am thankful for TN Death Row Dogs because they saved my Dre'. He was scheduled to die and was running out of time. TN Death Row Dogs scooped up my baby boy and gave us an opportunity to find him. He is the love of my life and makes me a better person. Thank you, TNDRD!
TDRD is one of the most sound and reputable organizations I have ever adopted from, and All of my dogs have come from rescues or shelters. TDRD has a knowledgable and passion to advocate for high risk dogs and fit them into proper, and forever, homes. The beautiful and intelligent dogs they had for adoption were wonderfully cared for and loved, and once I was approved to adopt our pup, I was kept up to date on her progress and care until she was ready to come home with us. I really can't say enough about this organization. Support them. They do really good things for dogs, and they sincerely love them.
Hands down the best rescue group my husband and I have adopted from. We rescued our 5th family member from TNDRD and she is the sweetest and most loving dog. We are so greatful for all they do for animals that have no voice and we are lucky to have met them!
I love TDRD and the work they do. I used to be heavily involved with this non-profit as a board member and volunteer until I moved out of their service area and was unable to dedicate my time anymore. TDRD has done exceptional work since beginning in 2011 and continues to be a reputable rescue in the Middle Tennessee area. TDRD is an amazing organization to support whether through donations, fostering, volunteering or networking. They make sound decisions regarding the welfare of the dogs in their care and they have saved hundreds, if not thousands, of dogs from euthanasia and undesirable circumstances. I also adopted 2 of their dogs that they put through extensive training so that they could be appropriately re-homed and I could not be more pleased with my TDRD fur-babies.
I was a foster home for TDRD. They were amazing to work with; great communication. When the pup I had wanted to foster was already adopted from his high kill shelter; they pulled another pup from the same high kill! Two lives saved!
