Bonaparte's Retreat

Our Mission

at Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue

Founded in 2004 by Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Emmylou Harris, Bonaparte's Retreat is named for one of Emmylou’s own beloved dogs -- for ten years, Bonaparte traveled on the road with Emmylou and was her constant companion. When he died suddenly in 2002, Emmylou was heartbroken. But her personal loss became the genesis of something remarkable – she founded Bonaparte’s Retreat to honor the memory of her beloved companion.

A small, foster-based 501(c)3 nonprofit dog rescue organization in Nashville, our focus is on rescuing the shelter dogs who are overlooked or deemed unadoptable – especially senior dogs, larger dogs, special needs dogs, or dogs in need of imminent medical care or surgery.  We are dedicated to providing nurturing care for these dogs when their allotted time at a shelter has elapsed, and our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to place them into permanent, loving homes.
