Making Adoption Magic

Since 1946, Nashville Humane Association has dedicated our efforts to aiding sick, homeless and at-risk shelter pets in Nashville, throughout Middle Tennessee, and across the globe.

Voted “Nashville’s Favorite Place to Adopt” year-over-year, we pride ourselves on our 99% save rate and making thousands of new families each year, all while focusing our mission on assisting pets and pet-people throughout our community.
