Max, a Shepherd mix, came to us about three years ago.  He had been abandoned in East Nashville; obviously "one man's trash"....Max was skinny, dirty, and in much need.  We did the normal stuff to get him ready for adoption, but guess what,????   He now works to help protect the same "species" that dumped him. Max is a search and rescue dog in West Tennessee...Love this dog! He is a "treasure"...


Destiny's Story...

Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of an all volunteer group of dedicated animal lovers who feel it is our privilege to care for God's "helpless" creatures. 
We are dedicated to finding "forever" homes for all of our pets. We take in even those "less desirables" that need medical treatment and/or special attention, as welll as those "found or surrendered" pets!  Many times these pets require hundreds or even a few thousand dollars in medical treatment before they can be adopted to a loving family.
Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue does not have a facility. Our organization chooses to keep our pets in Foster Care and show them on Adoption Day every Saturday the Bellevue, TN Petco.
Please see our Fostering Pets Page for information on our Foster Care Program.




Proverbs 12:10 helped Cheatham County Animal Control by rescuing about 28 dogs from the many who were surrendered by a family in November 2009.  Elbert is shown (below left) with Proverbs Director, Lavonne, at the time he was rescued.  He was obviously extremely thin, was covered with bed sores as well as being heartworm positive.  Lavonne provided him with one-on-one attention, home cooked food throughout his heartworm treatment and he is now available for adoption.

 Tigger is a very pretty boxer/ lab mix who loves other dogs (and would prefer home with another dog), children and does well w/ cats.  She is very energetic and does require a more about Tigger
Chip is playful and easy going and will make a great buddy for someone who enjoys exercise and fun. Chip can/ will jump a fence so a minimum 6' privacy fence would be needed to keep him more about Chip
