Please be aware that the dogs listed on this page are being fostered and cared for in Tennessee. So, should you apply for one of our dogs, you will be expected to travel to Tennessee for your meet and greet and adoption when the time comes. TDR+ does NOT ship dogs to other states, but we do adopt to homes in other states that are within a reasonable drive (generally 6 hours of East or Middle Tennessee) with an approved adoption application and contract in place.
