Where Our Rescue Adopts To (Distance / Range)

Please Note: You must be 21 years of age or older to adopt from our rescue.

Middle Tennessee Golden Retriever Rescue (MTGRR), now Adopt A Golden Nashville, primarily serves Middle Tennessee and the surrounding areas, including southern Kentucky and Northern Alabama.

There are Golden Retriever rescues in Memphis TN, Knoxville TN, Louisville Ky, and Birmingham AL, so MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, usually refers prospective adopters to these programs if they live closer to one of them.

The map below is an APPROXIMATION of the MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, service area. We do the best we can to be of service, but we appreciate your understanding that we are an all-volunteer organization and volunteers are difficult to find, especially as you get further from Nashville. If you are wondering whether we are able to adopt to your location, please email In all cases, regardless of the distance from a dog's foster home, MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, requires the adoptive family to travel to the foster home to meet their dog at the time of adoption, and if for any reason the adoption does not work out, the adoptive family must commit to return the dog to MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville. Due to health and safety risks we do not ever ship dogs.

The reason why MTGRR, now Adopt A Golden Nashville, doesn't adopt to long distance applicants is because it does not have resources (in terms of volunteers) to do initial and follow up home visits, which is an integral step in securing a forever home for a rescued dog. The cost of transport is also prohibitive, but not the sole reason.
