bonaparte's retreat

The Big Payback annual giving day returns on Wednesday, May 2, and BONAPARTE’S RETREAT is excited to take part in this monumental event again this year. The Big Payback, hosted by The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, is a community-wide giving day that celebrates our area’s spirit of generosity and supports the life-changing work of area nonprofits.


Kicking off at midnight on Wednesday, May 2, the 24-hour online giving day helps organizations just like us raise much-needed funds and bring awareness to our pressing needs. Gifts made to us during The Big Payback are amplified by incentives and awards and may help us qualify for special prizes and bonuses throughout the day.


This giving day can make a real difference for us. We hope you’ll support us and our mission to save more shelter dogs, nurture them back to health, and place them into loving and forever homes.

{+ 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.
