Bonaparte’s Retreat

Mission Statement

Founded in 2004 by Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris, Bonaparte’s Retreat is a small, foster-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dog rescue organization, and was the first private animal rescue group to partner with Metro Nashville Animal Care & Control. Our focus is on rescuing the shelter dogs who are often overlooked or deemed unadoptable–especially senior dogs, larger 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.pasting
