The NHA Directory of Resources



Nashville Humane Association (NHA) is dedicated to advocating responsible pet ownership by way of providing resources to those in need. We believe by providing these resources we are able to ensure an informed and responsible community and in this – families who are able to care for their pets without the need for rehoming. We have created a comprehensive directory to aid families in utilizing and recognizing these resources. While we seek to promote what resources may be utilized, we are not affiliated with the companies and or organizations listed.


In this directory you’ll find:


  • Human Help relating to domestic violence and homelessness, TN food banks, transitional living and housing assistance including utility assistance, medical and financial assistance, career and education guidance as well as contacts to local advocacy groups.
  • Pet Medical Help relating to low-cost spay and neuter, basic medical care, financial assistance programs for pets in need and more.
  • Dog Help relating to health and basic care, relationship-building, behavioral management and training, fostering for those on deployment, boarding facilities and in-home service providers and more.
  • Cat Help relating to health and basic care, relationship-building, behavioral management and training, boarding facilities and more.





The Nashville Humane Association (NHA) believes in helping the greatest number of animals within the guise of our available resources, which is why we utilize a managed placement process. Managed Placement regulates the flow of incoming animals, allowing NHA staff to give more individualized attention to the animals in our care, our large volume transports via our shelter partners and those who seek to rehome. While NHA and surrounding shelters may be an option for placement, we belive you are your pet’s greatest advocate and their best option in finding a new home! We emphasize and advocate direct adoption as this allows the least stressful transition for the animal – often in contrast to the shelter environment which commonly amplifies anxiety, aggression and illness.
