How did you become a scholarship pet? 

I am originally from Mexico, at least that’s what my papers say that my former owners dropped off at the shelter along with me.  The people people at Operation Tennessee found me and told me they’d make sure I find a happily ever after.

Tell us about yourself?

I am a professional lap sitter. I love to be held and cuddle. I get along pretty well with other dogs as long as they realize that I am superior to them. I am open to being spoiled and pampered and would probably make a great travelling companion.

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.
