Critter Cavalry Rescue Is An Animal Rescue Supported By Dedicated Volunteers

Critter Cavalry Rescue (CCR) is focused on rescuing homeless dogs & some special cats from high-kill shelters in Tennessee.

Did you know that states in the south, like Tennessee, face incredible overpopulation problems?

We are able to decrease the euthanasia of shelter animals by removing them from over-crowded shelters and placing them in loving foster homes until we help them find their perfect, forever family.

A Foster-Based Rescue Focused on High-Risk Middle Tennessee Animals

Critter Cavalry does not have a physical location. We are supported by generous and loving individuals volunteers who agree to shelter and care for the animals as a temporary placement until the animals can be adopted by a new family.

Decreasing Shelter Animal Euthanasia Through Animal Transport

Critter Cavalry does not have a physical location. We are supported by generous and loving individuals volunteers who agree to shelter and care for the animals as a temporary placement until the animals can be adopted by a new family.


To help decrease the euthanasia of shelter pets we transport animals from overcrowded rural Tennessee shelters to those communities who are looking for healthy shelter animals to adopt. 


Critter Cavalry abides by certain safeguards and restrictions including the legal requirements of each state in order to transport Tennessee Shelter pets to drop-off points in Virginia, New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and Pennsylvania.  

Powered By Loving Volunteers & Donations

ADOPTED!

We pride ourselves on doing whatever is necessary and it can often take several months to return an animal to good health. 


When a dog comes into CCR's care, funds must be spent on neutering/spaying, teeth cleaning (if needed), vaccinations, (Rabies, DHLPP, Bordetella), screening for Heartworms and a fecal test. Vetting expenses on a healthy small animal can get expensive and even more so with the larger breeds. 


The truth is the majority of found/stray/rescue dogs and cats DO require additional vetting. Deworming is always a necessity. CCR routinely treats Heartworm positive animals, pays to set broken bones, treat illnesses and injuries---providing treatment the original owners either didn't choose or could not afford. It is not unusual for the costs of this care to become extremely expensive.


We succeed only because of the generosity of loving volunteers who take these animals into their homes, who make them part of the family while providing care, training, and love. The foster environment allows the CCR animals to be assessed for behavioral and health issues and have those issues addressed. Then every attempt is made to find the best possible forever family for each animal.
