About us

Are you looking for a forever friend? Someone who will love you as much as you love them? Someone to cuddle with after a bad day? Someone to join you on a run or a hike or even a bike ride? If you are, we might just have your new best friend!

JRs Pups-N-Stuff began with one goal in mind - to save animals from life threatening situations. That ideal has gotten us to where we are today. We've had quite a few happy endings and will continue to provide excellent homes to all future rescue dogs. We do not discriminate. We do not rescue dogs specifically because of their breed or age. We rescue animals that need us to save their lives. They may be at risk of euthanasia for many reasons. Primarily this is due to space limitations or health issues.

Some history

Our first dogs arrived through the efforts of two volunteers who drove through the night to the Kentucky/Tennessee border. Holli and her nine 1 week old puppies, and Chiqua who was expecting her puppies any day, were carefully transported back and placed in foster homes, where they would be until their puppies reached eight weeks of age and their forever homes were found. Since our first adoption of Shelby, JRs Pups-N-Stuff has found forever homes for over 7,000 dogs, we are working to place over 100 dogs right now as well. We have also placed over 100 cats. Heartworm treatments have been provided for over 700 dogs.

Heartworm would be a death sentence for these dogs if they were left in the shelters. With the one heartworm medication no longer in production, heartworm preventative is even more critical than ever. None of this could have been done without the support and dedication of the volunteers and adopters.

Who we are

Our rescue was built by a network of foster parents. Through the growth, we have discovered the greatest joys life can offer. We found kind, wonderful and caring people that have joined us. Not only people who want to foster dogs, but who will transport them, build websites, do home visits, and manage paperwork. As the group grows, we are able to save the lives of more dogs every day. We are doing what we set out to do. We've become the little rescue with a big heart.
