Message From Our Director

Dear Friends,


Together, we have endured one of the most difficult times in recent history. In 12 months, Nashville has experienced a tornado, the pandemic, a bombing, and flooding. It is easy to only focus on the hardships, but at Nashville Humane we are reminded daily about our supportive and passionate animal-loving community. Let me share an example. Our industrial washer and dryer broke for a few days, and we were crestfallen as our animals need clean, warm bedding while under our care. Within 2 hours of putting the plea out, our community washed laundry and donated enough bedding to last us weeks! Our loving community, human and animal, are a bright spot during a dark time.


So today I am asking, if you have the means to do so, please consider helping us now by making a tax-deductible donation to help our animals and to help us continue to do this vital work to protect and care for our vulnerable pets in our community that are abandoned, homeless, abused, and neglected. Thousands of these animals come through our doors every year and we strive at providing stellar care to our animals. Your donations make that possible, in every sense of the word. Without your help, our shelter could not and would not survive.


If you can’t make a donation, please know that we see you. You are our bright spot. There are so many ways you can support your local shelter from sharing posts on social to volunteering to fostering. The sky is the limit!


Thanks to all of you for supporting us in whatever ways that you do! We appreciate you and our animals are lucky to have friends and supporters like you!
