How did you become a scholarship pet? 

The owners of Friendsville Animal Shelter found out about me being at the Maryville, TN Animal Shelter and came to meet me.  It wasn’t just my exuberant personality that qualified me to be a scholarship pet, but I needed some pampering to help my neglected coat shine again – and they wanted to do that for me!  Wow!  I felt special.

Tell us about yourself?

My ideal home would be one where I am the only dog and there are no young children.  I love to play fetch and run and sometimes I can’t control my own adrenaline so I play a little too rough with other dogs and I never learned the proper gentleness with children.  I would love a retired person or two who need someone to give all of their attention to.  I don’t need a ton of exercise, but I do enjoy getting out and will need to in order to keep me healthy and content.

How can you meet me?

The very first step is filling out an adoption application.   (Please make sure you get a confirmation that your application has been submitted.)  After your application is received, it’s reviewed and if we may be a match, you’ll be invited to come meet me!

Anything else?

All scholarship pets are spayed/neutered, current on age appropriate vaccinations and microchipped before going to their new home because that’s the responsible way to keep us all safe. Oh and another great thing is that all scholarship pets get 30% off boarding for lifetime at Friendsville Animal Center, LLC.

Is there an adoption fee?

Yes.  While we receive free room and board at Friendsville Animal Center, the adoption fees help to provide food and any medical care we may need during our stay (and pays it forward to other scholarship pets that find their way here).  Here is some information about the adoption fees.
