All donations to Russell Rescue of Tennessee go to saving and caring for dogs. We have no paid staff.


All of the dogs you see on this website owe their lives to the dedicated volunteers of Russell Rescue of Tennessee, and generous donors like you. Your donation goes to provide pull fees to shelters, transportation, medical treatment, and food for these precious dogs as they seek their loving forever home.

We are often contacted to save dogs that are elderly, are severely injured or neglected, or have special needs or handicaps. We do not refuse these dogs based on medical needs, regardless of the costs of their care. We believe every dog deserves a chance at a happy life.
