Since 2004, Bonaparte’s Retreat has been saving Nashville’s shelter dogs. Founded by Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris, we are a small, foster-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dog rescue organization dedicated to providing nurturing care for the shelter dogs often overlooked or deemed unadoptable—senior dogs, large dogs, special needs dogs, or dogs in need of imminent medical care or surgery. Our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to place them into permanent, loving homes.
Dollares raised during the Fund the Shelters Challenge enable us to provide the high-quality care we give to our rescued shelter dogs—such as the long-term care necessary to save senior dogs and dogs with behavioral issues and the very high cost of care for medically needy dogs or those requiring imminent surgery. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support!
