Are you interested in speaking with someone from our team about a Nashville Humane event? We have out of box and custom experiences that we can bring to your corporate event, fundraiser, community group and more.

We are happy to bring a Nashville Humane Puppy Party to any community and personal event as they are the most popular option, we offer at NHA!   A Puppy Party will include puppies, puppy handlers, all puppy supplies including puppy play pen, floor covering, water bowls, NHA literature table, etc.  A Puppy Party is perfect for any offsite celebration, happy hours, pop-ups, small festivals, school events, and more.  Depending on the size of your event, our Events and Outreach Coordinator will determine the appropriate donation.  

NHA offers two Birthday Party options.  We can bring the party to you by doing an offsite Puppy Party (see above “Puppy Party” for details).  We additionally offer Birthday Parties here at our shelter.  Onsite Birthday Parties include a 30-minute set up time for the client and an hour and a half party in our Community Room.  Additionally, we offer access to our outdoor/fenced patio adjacent to the Community Room, the ability to bring in your own food and drink, puppy play time with 2 NHA adoptable puppies, 2 puppy handlers to assist with your party, and access to our internal lobby photo booth for party photos.  Onsite Birthday Parties are a donation of $350.  We do offer the option to add on a 30-minute appearance from our Rover or Fluffy mascot for an additional donation of $150.

Nashville Humane now offers larger Corporate and/or Convention Packages.  We can host your group at the shelter for volunteer opportunities, provide an offsite Puppy Party for convention or cocktail hour, trade-show booth set ups, and more.  Please contact us for details and we can provide a donation proposal for your event(s). 

Interested in volunteering with your social organization or work colleagues? We offer two opportunities for this – Group Volunteering and Corporate Volunteering. Both are offered only on weekdays during our business hours (10am-5pm) and require that you apply at least 6-8 weeks in advance of the date you wish to volunteer, so we can plan accordingly.

NHA Donation Drives that benefit Nashville Humane are events that involve the collection of some of our ongoing Wish List items.  We use these items daily to provide care for our adoptable animals.  Nashville Humane can also provide additional volunteers for your donation drive if our schedule allows. 

NHA Fundraisers are events that are hosted by another party with Nashville Humane being the beneficiaries without any other involvement. The host can determine if they wish for an NHA representative to be onsite.  We are happy to provide representation if our schedule allows.

Humane Education is a perfect way to provide information about our mission here at NHA.  We have Staff and Volunteers that can come offsite to your event, school, or gathering to discuss what we do at Nashville Humane, services we offer, community outreach, how you can help a shelter and further the discussion of the humane treatment of animals.  A Humane Education session typically lasts 1 hour and includes NHA literature.  We do ask for a small monetary donation and/or a collection of our Wish List items in return. 

Nashville Humane is happy to offer your small group a tour of our shelter if our schedule allows.  We do ask for a 2-week notice, prior to the booking of a group tour.  We offer both a brief 30-minute tour of our facility to talk about what we do here at NHA.  We also have a 1 hour behind the scenes tour that we can offer.  For both group tour options we do ask for volunteer help, wish list donations or monetary donations to be given to Nashville Humane prior to or the day of your tour.

Nashville Humane requires at least a 30-day notice prior to the event for scheduling purposes. Our event hours are 8:00 am – 8:00 pm and puppies are not to be kept off site longer than 4 hours at a time. For any off site events, we require a 30-minute load in and set up prior to an event. For all NHA events we do require a donation to the shelter. Suggested donations will be discussed once the event request form has been submitted and we can confirm availability. Suggested donations are based on the event type and size. Nashville Humane reserves the right to cancel or modify any previously scheduled event due to extreme weather or illness.
