Piney Mountain Foster Care is a small non-profit, all volunteer non-profit kennel facility located on 4 acres of mountainside property in Edwina Tennessee. We got our start in 2012 by caring for dogs going through heartworm treatment.  We still do this and other medical care.  We also work with dogs with behavioral issues.  And we are delighted to work with well-adjusted, healthy dogs who just need a break in life.

Our Mission

Although we are not a rescue, our primary mission is to help rescue dogs from kill shelters.  Many need health care.  Most need training.  That’s where we come in.  When adoptable, we work with and through canine rescues locally and around the nation to find these dogs quality forever homes.  See the Canine Rescue Partners page for details on them.

Our Facility

Our facilities include a 1/3 acre fenced play yard, 8′ x 10′ chain link kennels on a raised concrete slab with perimeter drains, under a proper roof, with dog houses and raised beds for nice weather accommodations, and a heated bunkhouse with an assortment of crates for foul-weather and short term accommodations of non-housebroken dogs.  Each dog gets 3 to 5 play/training sessions each day when they are allowed to run, play, and train in our large, fenced yard.  The kennels are cleaned each time the dog is let out, to keep their “rooms” pleasant and sanitary.  We normally have seven to ten dogs in residence at a time.

Our Programs

To keep the facility maintained and provide food and medical care to our residents, we depend heavily on our generous donors. Donors may choose to offer general support or select a specific program.  Your gift may be a one-time donation, or monthly.  Programs include:

  • The Julian Fund: Raising money to pay for veterinary bills of neglected and abandoned rescue dogs in and around Cocke County TN.  See the Julian Fund page to donate.
  • The Kennel Fund: Funds earmarked for expansion and upgrades of our kennel and play yard facility.  An urgent need right now as we press to build indoor kennels for winter.
  • Sponsor a Dog: If you would like to sponsor the feeding and veterinary care of a specific dog in residence here. Include the name of that dog in the Notes area at check-out.
  • General Operations: Choose this option to allow us to apply your donation to whatever is the greatest need right now.
  • Sponsorship: Become a sponsor with an automatically billed monthly gift. Include your e-mail address at check-out and we’ll be sure you are notified when new articles and events are published.

One-time gifts are welcome and much appreciated. Use the DONATE button, enter any amount, and choose a program. You may pay with your PayPal account or use a credit card.  Please consider becoming a sponsor by ticking the “make it a monthly donation” box.  PayPal will then automatically bill your PP account or credit card each month until you elect to stop it.

NOTE: No people here receive a salary or benefits of any kind. All money donated to Piney Mountain Foster Care is used to provide care to the dogs. PMFC’s Board of Directors is in the process of obtaining our 501(c)(3) status.

Foster Dogs Past & Present

Below are photos, names and residency dates of our fosters.

Most dogs get a Notes On A Rescue Dog page that offers photos and video of that dog interacting with people and other dogs as well as descriptions of their personality, habits, and progress in training. As adopter Debra Solitto told us, “I have read your blog about Julian many times. It was posted by Meryl on the Fur Friends in Need Facebook page. That blog and the videos of Julian are the main reason that we pursued this adoption. After I met Julian at the adoption event and saw those videos, I knew that I had to have this dog”. We encourage rescues taking our dogs to link to the page related to that dog and use it in finding them a forever home.
