Get Involved

We are a volunteer-based dog rescue organization in Bolivar, Tennessee. We rescue from the Hardeman County Animal Control facility on the hill, which is a high kill shelter. We take the dogs into our shelter, provide veterinarian assistance (if needed), and find them loving homes. We rely solely on our community, volunteers, foster families, and donations to make our shelter a success. Get involved with us today!

Our shelter is open Sunday through Saturday 9am – 1pm. Please contact a volunteer to find out more information on a specific dog or visit our Facebook page.

FOSTER

Fostering helps our mission of saving one dog at a time. Whether it’s for a brief weekend or long-term, every day matters for these animals. Being a foster helps us to learn more information such as the following:

  • How the dog interacts in a home environment.
  • Is the dog good with other dogs? cats?
  • Is the dog great with children?
  • Is it active or calm?
  • Has it been crate trained or house broken?

Our fosters are the best resources for this information that is so crucial in how we adopt the dogs out and help the dogs find forever homes!

E-mail haa.shelter@yahoo.com to find out more about fostering with us! If you are ready to fill out the foster application, you can fill out the form here.

PLEASE NOTE: By filling out an application, it does not obligate you to be a foster. It just starts the fostering process.

DONATE

Maybe adopting, fostering or volunteering is not a good fit for you. Please consider making a donation to our cause to help us save the lives of sweet, innocent animals. We value every cent that comes to our shelter and work hard to provide all the animals with the best veterinarian care, heartworm medicine, vaccinations, food, water, sheltering and more. We rely heavily on donor support and adoption fees to keep our shelter going.
