Ms. Tanya Willis

Term:

Since June 2004

Leadership Statement:

As director of Agape, I have a specific vision regarding the future of the organization. We hope to establish an education facility that includes training space, meet and greet areas, and general office space. We are unique in nature because of our specialized one-on-one foster parent and dog training programs. We provide a network of resources, continuing education, and general support that is not always present in the animal rescue/welfare community. We will continue to expand our efforts through Middle Tennessee in hopes of lowering the number of dogs euthanized in the local county shelters. We will do this by increasing the number of dogs in fabulous forever homes who have been advantageously placed with quality homes.

Program Description:

Through our foster care training program, we strive to provide the dogs in our care with more than just a safe temporary home. Our goal is to teach them good house manners and basic obedience skills, including how to walk nicely on a leash. Depending on how long our dogs are in foster care, they will have learned basic commands like SIT, STAY, DOWN, SIT TO PET, SAY HI, and more. Each adoptive family is supplied with materials to make sure the dogs transition is stress free and a positive experience. These items include: list of vocabulary words, guide to living with dogs and kids, guides to living with a new dog in general.

Program Description:

Agape dogs are taken care of by a network of foster homes, where dedicated foster parents care for and nurture the dog until he/she can be placed in their forever homes. We are always looking for people who can care for our dogs as if they are a personal pet. Our foster parents are expected to monitor a dog's behavior while assisting him/her with training and any medical or emotional rehabilitation that may be needed. We offer periodic group training classes and many resources for continuing education to all foster parents. While the organization is financially responsible for the dogs in the program, the foster parents provide a caring heart loving home.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

In the most recent year, we have implemented our first annual campaign drive, raising approximately $25,000. We have our highest number of adoptions at 106. We participated in 2 major Middle Tennessee dog busts in associated with Animal Rescue Corp, one a dog fighting ring. We brought in 47 dogs from the busts. We are coming to the aid of the community more and more by giving out dog food and taking in more owner surrenders. Agape has an enhanced a dog training program for foster dogs that resulted in almost a zero return rate, meaning almost no dogs come back to our program once adopted. The dog training program includes sending some of our harder-to-adopt dogs to professional one-on-one training classes, which is why these dogs ultimately got adopted. We provide our foster parents with continuing education and pet emergency training to ensure that their knowledge remain cutting edge.
