Hello there, my name is Annie, and I came to rescue in sort of a different way than most dogs do. You see I had my picture on Facebook, evidently I was on the euthanasia list and was even moved to that dreaded room when an individual (lets call him Dan) stepped in and saved my life. Dan came in and told me that I was a good girl and "that you passed your dog test and baby test with flying colors" (whatever that means!). All I know is that I got a second chance at life.
But Dan hadn't planned on keeping me - with three dogs of his own and a brand new baby, he didn't have room for me forever but knew he couldn't let me die. So that's where we are now, me at Dan's house while we look for my forever.
I am dog friendly, baby friendly 4 year old girl who looks a bit like a who from Whoville (see that little turned up nose?) I'm a petite girl, weighing in around 30 lobs, though I know I could stand to gain a few pounds. My foster family thinks I'm the cutest thing ever and is so proud to have gone out on a limb to save me. I sure agree and appreciate every day I am given, I promise to show my appreciation and love each and every day I am given for the rest of my life. My adoption fee is $450 and will include my spay surgery, microchip, up to date vaccines, 6 month heartworm injection, health certificate and transportation from Memphis to your area upon adoption.

Wilson Animal Rescue - Chicago Transport Chapter
Wilson Animal Rescue is a 100% volunteer-run, foster-based rescue group in Memphis, Tennessee. We focus on rescuing dogs who are in danger of being euthanized at the city's run shelter and other midsouth shelters. We strive to place dogs in loving homes not only locally but in cities in the Midwest and New England areas.
We keep in touch with our adopters - and not everyone who applies for a dog gets one. We say no as much as we say yes. We are looking for people who feel the same way about their dogs as we do - that they are family and bringing one into your home is a major commitment.
We also appreciate it takes a tremendous amount of trust to adopt a dog before meeting - trust on behalf of the adopter and trust from our fosters. They have to trust that we are sending the dog, who they have loved, to a wonderful new home. This trust is ever present in our minds and not something we take lightly, so we are happy to answer adopters questions. Please do, however remember that we are 100% volunteer run - we have jobs and families and we do our very best to respond as quickly as we can to all inquiries and follow up questions.
We have two vets we use primarily - Cloverleaf Animal Clinic and Walnut Grove Animal Clinic - they are both located in Memphis. Please feel free to call either of their clinics if you are interested in a reference for our rescue.
Shelter Driving Directions
All of our dogs are fostered in the Memphis, TN area. We are happy for you to come to Memphis and meet any of the dogs we have available. We are unable to send dogs outside of the Memphis area prior to adoptions.
Wilson Animal Rescue is 501(c)(3) based in Memphis, TN. We are able to transport our dogs upon adoption via Road Home Pet Transport.
We send an adoption application to be potential adopter's, they fill it out and email it back to us. Once we read it over, called references and feel like it may be a good fit, we put the adopters and fosters in contact so they can further discuss the dog. We feel that being completely prepared, and transparent about the dog, is the best way to go. The adopter can ask questions about routine, behavior, etc. We are really looking for a best fit for the dog and adopter. And because all of the dogs are living in homes (no longer in a shelter environment) we really get to know them like they are our own. We get to see who is cat friendly, who really loves having kids around, who may be a little more unsure in new situations, etc.
The adoption application can be found at www.wilsonanimalrescue.com/adopt.
