WHAT WE DO
CPR’s mission is rescuing & rehoming abandoned and neglected dogs.
In addition to to rescuing & rehoming dogs, we promote our own spay/neuter outreach program that allows us to assist families that need this service but can’t afford it.
Companion Pet Rescue’s name was chosen very deliberately — we focus our efforts on friendly, social, loving companion pets. We rarely assist in placing dogs with special needs or aggression — we simply are not equipped to rescue these dogs, as our dogs are heavily socialized with others (a doggy daycare environment), or in foster homes, almost all of which have children and other pets.
While we always have more dogs in need than foster homes to help, we focus on the positive and what we can accomplish, this helps us save thousands of dogs in need!
Please help us spread the word about our rescue and our spay/neuter initiative. Thank you for supporting CPR!
Our adoption process is easy peasy! Take a look at the available dogs (who change often, as we rescue more weekly), fill out our application, and our adoption coordinator will be in touch! It can take up to about five days, but usually you’ll hear back within two. Completing the adoption application is the must-do to get the ball rolling and keep your place “in line.”
75% of our dogs and pups come from high kill shelters in Tennessee and Mississippi. These shelters reach out to CPR for help. If the shelters are able to adhere to our intake protocol, we are very happy to work with them. If we are contacted to help with puppies in a shelter, the mom is never left behind by CPR if she is also at the shelter.
The other 25% of our dogs and pups come from the public. We are asked to assist with personally owned unwanted adult dogs and litters of puppies. For the litters, our assistance is contingent upon the individual agreeing to the get their female dog spayed at CPR’s expense. Our main goal is not adoption. Our main goal is to end the cycle of unwanted dogs and we know the way to that is through spay/neuter. Spay/neuter is the only solution to pet overpopulation.
Because we rarely have information on the background of our pups prior to their entering our care, we are unable to provide exact birthdates, and our estimates of breed mixes are based on physical characteristics.
