Be A Hero In Their Story...

COVID-19 STATEMENT - RARE is still processing applications, receiving monetary or in-kind donations, and scheduling home introductions for adoptables and fosters. We are taking every precaution while still providing the proper care and homing  of our animals. Information on ways to give and help support us at this time can be found on the Donate page of our website.

Our Mission

Rural Animal Rescue Effort (RARE) is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit Organization based in middle Tennessee with a mission to rescue neglected and abandoned animals in rural areas with extreme overpopulation of companion animals.
We accomplish our mission by :​​
  • Finding fosters and adopters in more populated/metropolitan areas
  • Providing spay/neuter assistance 
  • Transport - Working with rescue partners nationally in order to save a higher quantity of animals more rapidly than we can find fosters and adopters for locally
  • Providing education within communities and schools
