Are you a fan of the bulldog? The Smoky Mountains Bulldog Rescue has the pet for you! Since Bulldogs are their specialty, they have expertise in matching you with the perfect bulldog companion. There is a greater interest to adopt than there are bulldogs, so it is imparative to fill out an application. The National Bulldog Rescue website has information, and applications for folks living outside of East TN who are interested in adopting a bulldog. For those living in the East Tn Area, this website has a mail-in application form to fill out and return to the indicated address. Or, if you prefer, you may fill out an on-line application form and send it in. The Smoky Mountains Bulldog Club meets the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 at different locations. For questions, or further information contact club secretary, Mari DeCuir at 865-688-2270.
The Smoky Mountain Animal Care Foundation is another excellent venue. This organization was founded in 2007. It's a non-profit establishment who works hard for the improvement of animal welfare in the Blount County area, as well as other Great Smoky Mountain counties. It's done through the promotion of various programs. The Smoky Mountain Animal Care Foundation works with the Blount County Animal Center to find good homes though pet adoption. The placement rate is 90% for dogs and 60% for cats. This is accomplished through adoption, rescue, and transport.
