Fostering for The Hero Rescue has been a very rewarding experience. The Hero Team is very responsive to questions and concerns about each animal they take in. I would recommend Hero rescue to anyone who would like to give back to their community and help animals in need.

My family had a warm and wonderful experience with The Hero Rescue. It is clear they love the animals they rescue and they’re so supportive to foster and adoptive families. We love our Luna and are so thankful we found The Hero Rescue!

I had been searching for a dog for a while, and then I found The Hero Rescue! They were absolutely amazing to work with. Our dog’s foster mom (Lauren) was so sweet, and she answered every one of our questions! It also seemed like she really took the time to get to know our dog (Cash) as an individual, because her description of his personality was spot on!! We will definitely be using this rescue again in the future!

After trying to work with several other non profits and always missing out on the pet we wanted we went to The Hero Rescue and they did not stop working with us to find the perfect fit for us and the dog. They were so wonderful to work with!

I was alerted to a deaf and blind puppy here in Tenn. She was emaciated, covered in fleas and also had ear mites. The Hero Rescue stepped up without hesitation and said they would take her into their rescue. They provided the money for her to get veterinary care, then they coordinated a transport for that sweet, beautiful baby all the way to Maryland!
Yes, The Hero Rescue gets 10/10 from me.

Ive been a volunteer with rescues in the past that were not up to par, but the hero rescue is an absolute dream of an organization. They go above and beyond for not only their team, but the animals as well. They are always on call for any type of issue, educate on any issues that arrise with fosters, and provide all around great service, even for past adopters. if I could rate 10 stars. I would. LOVE THE HERO RESCUE

After loosing our beloved 10 year old dog last year before the pandemic, we finally began the process of adopting a second dog.
Losing one of our dogs was hard, even more so as the pandemic began to hit! Our other dog had lost her BFF and we were left heartbroken.

Since the last 2 months the sear began to find our new furry family member, and after different hit and miss with other rescues we found “Florence.”

The Hero rescue heard our family, our requirements, our needs and found us our perfect match.
We are all in love with our Flora. She is the sweetest, most gentle and loving dog !!

I love this rescue! I recently adopted my pup Chopper (fka Lucas) from them. They are wonderful compassionate and have their dogs best interest in their hearts. Choppy is the sweetest. I am so lucky that we’ve found each other.

I fostered for Hero Rescue and ended up adopting. The group is organized and responsive. Since adopting, I am trying to foster again. They are a great group and love the animals very much. They will help with anything you need. I highly recommend.

I have seen both sides to this rescue. I have fostered and adopted from them. It is so evident how the Hero Rescue cares so deeply for every animal that walks through their doors. There are so many kind and compassionate volunteers working in a daily basis to better the lives of so many dogs. My Bailey was one of the very first adopted through the rescue’s program. She is my shadow and lights up my world every single day. I can’t imagine life without her and that’s all because of a the Hero Rescue

The Hero Rescue is the most amazing rescue out there! There was a post on Facebook of my dog Cash with a brief description and I immediately fell in love! I submitted an application and got a response very quickly. There were a few hiccups (with my application) but Heather was very quick, helpful and responsive. She made sure that we would be a good fit for Cash and vice versa. I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing pup! He’s brought so much joy! I follow the Hero Rescue on Facebook and their work is truly awesome! Their work to help pups find their forever home is commendable.

Contacted hero rescue regarding a dog I saw on line. We were a bit out of their service area but they agreed to the adoption if we would take the dig back to Tyson for heartworm treatment. They worked with us to change dates of travel due to snowstorm! Chance ( previously Cruz) is the best dog ever . he quickly became part of our family. Hero rescue is the best!

We rescued our puppy Quartzite, now Milo, from The Hero Rescue and had such an amazing experience! His foster mom Liz took such great care of him, answered all of our questions and sent pictures of him while we waited to meet him! He has been so sweet since we brought him home. They also have an alumni Facebook group where you can follow their stories! We are so thankful and happy to have worked with The Hero Rescue! One day we hope to rescue another puppy or even foster one in the future ❤️

We rescued our puppy, Ranger (formerly Mario), from this rescue after seeing them at a local event. All the fosters and rescue members were so helpful throughout the entire meet & greet and adoption process. You can tell they care so much about helping these precious fur babes. They deserve so much praise for all they do each day to give these animals a better life! I’m so thankful I found them and look forward to supporting them in the future!

They introduced me to our new pup, Molasses! She was in rough shape when she arrived at the rescue, and they did a wonderful job of restoring her health! I did foster to adopt while we were finishing up her treatment, and they really helped with the veterinary care and were always there to answer my questions. I’ve had Mo for a little over a year now and am so thankful for the rescue and the work they do

This is a rescue that is dedicated to not just saving, but placing rescued dogs (and cats) in their forever homes. We were fortunate to foster a puppy last year. He was adopted by our next-door neighbor’s sister, and he is a loved and cherished companion. We also fostered a handsome cat named Brooks....but after one day, we realized he was meant to be our newest family member. He brings so much joy to everyone he meets.
I admire the the incredible time-investment and dedication of the HERO Rescue volunteers. So many wonderful animals have a new lease on life because of them.
I am including a picture of my handsome, rescue cat, Brooks.

I have had nothing but good experiences with the Hero Rescue. I will always be a big supporter of them and the work that they do. When my rescue pup came down with a really rare immunity-related neuromuscular condition, they donated prescription food to help with her recovery. They genuinely care about the lives of the dogs and are doing their part to save lives.

Very proud to be a part of this growing organization! We have a commitment to compassion for our animals and humans alike. Our volunteers are committed and genuine. They provide a warm environment for our dogs and allow for a smooth transition to their forever homes. We operate with a family approach and true dedication to the dogs’ future, far beyond “adoption” day.

Unfortunately members of this rescue are going around bashing other rescues for no reason. Many of their members were kicked out of other rescues for not following contract and conduct unbecoming.
What is the point in sending a bad review on a review 2 years after that rescue kicked you out?
Sad.

Such a great experience and so wonderful to work with! Everyone at Hero Rescue was so kind, accessible, and helpful. You can tell they genuinely care about the dogs. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed for our foster, who we eventually adopted. We found our forever dog through Hero Rescue and still keep in touch through their alumni Facebook group!
