Beginning in March of 2020, due to recommendations by metro government and CDC, Nashville Humane closed our doors for public operations. We reopened our facility by APPOINTMENT ONLY in June, and are excited to be still finding forever homes for our awesome shelter pets.
Here’s how it works:
If you click on each pet’s page you can learn more about the individual pet. There are two options, based on whether the pet is currently in the shelter or in a foster home:
- If the pet is currently IN SHELTER, then you’ll want to schedule a time to visit the shelter through our BOOKING APP.
- If the pet is currently IN A FOSTER HOME, then you’ll need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the SUBJ “Interested in Meeting _____” and the Pet Services team will provide you more information about a virtual meet and greet.
If you’d just like to come visit the shelter, you can schedule an appointment through our BOOKING APP. Because of COVID19 we have established health and safety rules for visiting the shelter. You can find those on our booking page here: nashvillehumane.org/booking
How can I view the adoptable pets?
Great! You can go here to view the animals that are currently available for adoption: nashvillehumane.org/adoption
Can I visit the shelter and meet the pets?
Yes. We are open by APPOINTMENT ONLY. You can schedule an appointment here: nashvillehumane.org/adoption
Is there anything I can do to change the process or skip ahead in line like call the shelter, or send a DM on Facebook?
No. We’re doing our best to serve a high volume of interest, and we appreciate your patience. Thank you!
I am searching for a specific ‘breed’ of pet. Do you have it?
Maybe? Your best bet is to watch our ADOPTION PAGE on our website, and follow us on Facebook and Instagram. You can see our lineup of adoptable cuties there, but remember, to adopt you need to follow our adoption process. The most common way to adopt is by visiting the shelter. To visit the shelter you need to schedule and appointment through our BOOKING PAGE.
Lastly, due to the volume of inquiries and animals we care for at any given time, we do not have a “contact me list.”
The adoption process at NHA is friendly, educational and rewarding! Animals come to us looking for a forever home, and we make certain to give them their best shot. All animals in our Adoption Program, while at NHA, receive spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, and veterinary treatment. And of course, lots of love!
Now, it’s your turn to love them forever. Noticing that we use the word “forever” a lot? Well, it is really important to us that our pets find a permanent home! Therefore, adoption applicants are carefully screened and must meet adoption requirements prior to taking your new furry friend home.
