La Vergne-Smyrna Pet Adoption: Meet Roe, Midnight, Ford & More

Looking to add to your family and give back to the La Vergne-Smyrna community at…

Looking to add to your family and give back to the La Vergne-Smyrna community at the same time? Consider adopting a dog, cat or other animal from a local shelter or organization. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters are still working to find forever homes for dozens of cats, dogs and other adorable critters coming through.

Across Tennessee, there are thousands of dogs, cats and other animals of all ages, sizes and breeds without a home — many of whom are located within driving distance. For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new friend is at Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, where Ford the dog is waiting patiently, or another local animal shelter. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed in permanent homes.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Roe, a Labrador Retriever up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
