Steele Away Home – Canine Foster and Rescue is a non-profit 501(c)(3) foster based canine rescue located in Newport, TN.  Each of our rescue dogs are cared for by a loving foster family as we help them on their journey to a forever home.  In addition to saving as many lives as we possibly can, we also hope to bring awareness to the need to have pets spayed and neutered to stop the cycle of the homeless animals.

Steele Away Home – Canine Foster and Rescue has been established in part to recognize and honor the work of Jenifer Parry Steele who has worked tirelessly since 2003 to save thousands of animals from Newport and Cocke County.  We, the fosters and volunteers, are proud to be part of this amazing group working to save lives!  We welcome all who will join us.

“Everyone wants a Steele dog!”

Thank You!


My name is Debra and I became Julian’s mama this past Thursday. I wanted to thank you for saving him. He is the most amazing dog. He is incredibly sweet. He is wonderful in the house and is learning very quickly how to walk on a leash and follow commands. He is very smart.  My children adore him and my husband is in awe of how gentile he is. We are all so very grateful to you and Marie for all you do. I wanted to let you know that Julian did indeed find his forever home and will be very well cared for and loved, thanks to you and Marie.

Best Regards,

Debra S.

We have been working with Jen for a few years and this is very rewarding work. We have to keep the big picture, that is how I manage to let the critters go. You won’t believe how good you will feel when you see your foster adopted.
