As you may have heard, at least 25 units at Hickory Creek Apartments and Townhomes were damaged in a fire last night. Thankfully, all residents were able to escape safely. But sadly, some of the residents' pets didn't survive. We're so terribly sorry to those who lost their beloved pets. ⁠
We want to help however we can. While we can't replace all that was lost, our Community Resource Center is here for you. If you need assistance, please reach out via the form linked in our bio. ⁠
We host a monthly Pet Grief Support Group here at Nashville Humane in partnership with @pawstoremember.nashville. Our next group meeting is Sunday, February 19, from 10-11:30 AM. If you'd like to join us, seats can be reserved here: bit.ly/nhapetloss
