Shelter Information

Rescue Riders Cooperative is a group of rescues across the southeast that are linked together by our love of animals and our desire to see as many as possible in the loving arms of a new family. Each rescue is independently run but realizing that there is strength in numbers, we have formed a cooperative to work together to place as many animals as possible. Not only do the rescues save these animals and give them badly needed health care but they also work tirelessly in their home communities to help educate people regarding the importance of spay & neuter and how it reduces pet overpopulation. When you adopt one of their dogs you help with this mission. We all thank you for that support and for opening your home and heart to an animal who needs you. You are a hero!

Adoption Instructions

All our rescues work hard to find loving homes for the dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies that find their way into their care. These animals come from a wide variety of backgrounds and situations and all of them are looking for a forever home. They will be completely vaccinated, vetted, neutered/spayed (if age appropriate) and on heartworm protection. All of them come with complete medical records. They are transported to you with our USDA licensed and certified transport – Rescue Riders LLC, “The most animal-friendly transport on the road.” Their adoption fees vary but, in all cases, it covers the animals vetting, vaccinations, spay/neuter as well as their foster care, and their transportation to your area. Thank you for opening your home to a rescue animal. ADOPT, DON'T SHOP.

This is Colby a Australian Cattle Dog, or simply Cattle Dog, Red Heeler, he is a breed of herding or working dog originally developed in Australia for driving cattle over long distances across rough terrain. Being a working dog, (they use their mouth as a tool) no cats, no young kids, Needs obedience training (sit come stay- does know sit, very smart, food motivated), he’s young, about a year old. Best outcome would be a farm setting. Australian Cattle Dogs are loyal and protective of their families, though wary of outsiders. Besides herding work, they do well at canine sports, including agility, obedience, rally, flyball, and flying disc competitions. Not a pet for apartment dwellers; these dogs need a lot — a lot! — of mental and physical activity to stay happy and healthy, and to prevent bored, destructive behavior. If you have a home with plenty of room to run, and you can keep up with such an active pup, this may be the breed for you!

Meet Mauser! 3.5 years old (estimated) 62 pounds Spayed Female, fully vetted Beagle/Lab/Shepherd mix Mauser was abandoned at a campsite up in the mountains of East Tennessee. A good Samaritan found her, took her home, and tried to locate an owner. Due to not having an animal shelter in her county, the finder agreed to place Mauser with our rescue while we did some searching. After some digging and microchip tracing, the long story ended with Mauser being signed over to rescue by her original owner. We are now on the hunt to find Mauser the most fantastic family she deserves! Mauser is such a funny girl. She definitely has some hound mixed in, as she catches scents and pays no attention to anything else (haha). She loves to run around in the backyard, and will play-wrestle with her foster mom (she is gentle, but does like to jump around). She does not seem interested in many toys, unless it is to get rid of that terrible squeaker! She wants to play with other low-key dogs her size (please no strong-willed, alpha-type dogs for her). Due to her high prey drive, she needs a no-cat, no small-animal household. We also recommend kids over the age of 12 as she is not a fan of little ones screaming and is not a big fan of being constrained. She is crate trained and kennel trained (keeps her areas squeaky clean, like a lady should). We will require a securely fenced in yard to keep her wandering hound-nose safe (no radio collars or short chain-link fencing). She likes to bird watch and will keep your yard bird and squirrel-free! She would really love to go on long hikes, daily walking adventures, and she LOVES car rides. She could be your very best ride-or-die, life-long companion! If the other human companions in life have let you down, Mauser would like to apply to fill in their shoes! Could you be the family Mauser would like to call her own? Please email Amanda, at to request an adoption application. Our adoption fee is $450. This fee includes: Spay/neuter, microchip, up-to-date DA(H)PP vaccines, bordatella (kennel cough) vaccine, rabies vaccine (12-weeks and older), heartworm test (6 months or older), deworming(s), and up to date flea/tick/heartworm prevention. It also includes transport via Rescue Riders LLC. Vet references, personal references, and home visits may be also be required prior to adoption depending upon adopter location. Completion of an adoption application does not guarantee adoption. show less

Tracker is a two and a half-year-old medium sized mixed breed dog with such a fight to survive and overcome his past. Surrender to the local animal shelter by no fault of his own, Tracker was alone and very scared. Animal control officer Heather was smitten by Tracker, and very unfortunately Tracker was positive for heartworm disease. Knowing the prognosis for Tracker at animal control wouldn’t be good, Heather asked for Animal Harbor’s help to provide him the treatment he desperately needed. We also fell in love with Tracker, and along with the help of many generous donors, we were able to have Tracker treated for heartworm disease. Fast forward eight long months of treatment, Tracker is finally heartworm free and beyond ready to find his forever home, far far away from the shelter. Tracker would do well with a two member family or a family that has older children. We would love for Tracker to go into a single pet home so he can make up for lost time and be the center of attention for many years to come! Tracker is up to date on vaccinations, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped. Can you give this sweet soul a second chance at a wonderful life? Please submit our application at if you think Tracker may be the one for you! We use Rescue Riders Pet Transport. The most animal-friendly transport on the road. show less
