We are glad you have come to adopt a pet from our shelter.
The following information is requested so that your adoption counselor can assist you in the selection of a new pet. The animal’s welfare is our foremost consideration. The consultation process is designed to help us determine if the adoption is in the animal’s best interest, and to assist you in finding an animal most compatible with your lifestyle.
The animals available for adoption came here from a variety of sources. All animals are examined by veterinary service staff member upon entry and their health is routinely monitored while at the shelter.*
*However, there is always a chance that an animal is incubating a disease or other health problem without showing any clinical signs. You are requested to contact Nashville Humane Association and advise us of any health problems. You will be instructed to bring the pet back to the shelter for our assessment. Should you seek veterinary care you are responsible for those bills. We suggest you obtain an estimate of your potential expense prior to treatment.
Our adoption fee includes: first series of vaccinations, deworming, feline leukemia/aids testing or heartworm testing (as applicable), and identification tag for dogs and puppies, and a cardboard carrier for cats and kittens.
