About Us

Happy Dog Rescue was organized in 2003 by a small group of volunteers in Memphis, Tennessee to rescue dogs from local shelters and rehome them locally with loving families. Our group quickly grew to include volunteers across the Southeast from Arkansas to Georgia, rescuing dozens of dogs in their respective communities every week.  

 

Before long, adoption applications began to come in from families in MA, CT, NY and surrounding states, and the rest is history! Since 2003, more than 4,000 Happy Dogs have been rescued and adopted to deserving families in the Northeast.

 

Happy Dog Rescue is dually headquartered in Memphis TN and White Plains NY. Volunteers in TN manage and organize the intake, vetting, and fostering of our rescue dogs, while volunteers in NY coordinate the adoption, transport and post adoption support for the dogs and their new families.

 

Happy Dog Rescue is run solely by volunteers and is a shelterless organization so we have no building or phone. Our dogs live in private foster homes in the South until they are adopted and travel to their Forever Families in the Northeast.
