UPDATE: We have a long waiting list of approved clients.
It could be many months before a dog that will fit with you comes along.
We appreciate your interest, and are still accepting new applicants, but want you to be aware of potential wait times before applying.
Also, we cannot take dogs to areas outside Tennessee currently. Out of state adopters must pick up the dogs here in Tennessee.
All Heartland dogs ready for adoption , have been quarantined for at least 10 days, given a medical examination; tested for worms; are current on all vaccinations (excluding Lyme); have been heartworm checked and if positive, treated; micro-chipped; spayed or neutered unless our veterinarian feels that there is a underling medical condition that would put the dog at risk having surgery. We cannot guarantee the health or age of dog, nor do we do hip x-rays. Most times we have no history on the dog whether they be owner releases or strays.
To help us cut back on boarding expenses, please consider fostering a dog and also help them adjust to a new lifestyle. As many of our foster homes often turn into permanent homes, so we do require an foster application be completed, references will be checked and a home visit conducted. Thank you for your support!
