Review for Tennessee Death Row Dogs, Mount Juliet, TN, USA
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!
