Rescues and Shelters in Tennessee

Please remember most rescues are very full and quite over-worked.

This list has been compiled by Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue thanks Petfinder for all they do to help animal rescue groups find forever homes for so many displaced, unwanted, stray and abandoned animals.

This list is sorted by location in Tennessee and then by the organization name.  We hope this helps you in your endeavor.
