bonaparte's retreat



The Big Payback annual giving day is returning on Thursday, May 4, and we are excited to take part in this monumental event.


A community-wide online giving day, The Big Payback celebrates Middle Tennessee's spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits just like us.


Kicking off at midnight on Thursday, May 2, the 24-hour online giving day helps us raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to the plight of our community's shelter dogs and the needs of individuals and families who may need help keeping pets in their homes.


We hope you'll support BONAPARTE'S RETREAT and our mission to give shelter dogs the second chance they so deserve on Thursday, May 2 during The Big Payback.

{+ Bonaparte’s Retreat!}


Bonaparte's Retreat volunteer Lindsay Sammon put us in touch with the team making a Turtle Wax online commercial for Esquire Magazine. Then volunteers Ryan Greene (and his wife, Taylor) were snatched up to appear in the commercial. And best of all, our own pups Little Buddy (now adopted) and Freya (still adoptable) are featured, too! Thanks to our incredible volunteers and everyone involved.
