Brown Dog Foundation is a Tennessee Chartered Not for Profit, and while the Corporate Office address has changed, we continue to abide by the laws of the State of Tennessee governing chartered businesses.  Since Tennesseans account for approximately 55% of the funds raised, we continue to assist Tennessee families at the same rate of giving.  Our national presence is not designed to alienate local communities, but to allow us the vision of assisting any family, anywhere, anytime.  

Approximately 20% of our annual budget is attributed to Administration and Fundraising Expenses.  

Seventy percent (80%) of our budget is directed toward our mission of bridging the gap between the cost of medical expenses and saving the family pet.
