Unleashed Event Information

Event Location

2023 Unleashed will take place at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel on West End Avenue in Nashville.

Bring Your Pet

So I can really bring my dog? Yes! That’s the whole idea behind the event. We ask that you use personal discretion when it comes to understanding your dog’s ability to cohabitate in a room with a couple hundred people and their pets, but yes that’s what Unleashed is all about!

Dress / Apparel

This year’s event theme is all things sports! We’re inviting everyone to join in the celebration and rock your best sporty gear. Otherwise, come comfortable and you do you.

Event Menu

This year we’re excited to announce that we’ve worked with the culinary team at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel to provide an amazing plant-based menu for all of our Unleashed attendees! When you support Nashville Humane you’re supporting ALL animals!

Types of Tickets

We offer individual seats as well as full tables. If you’d like to purchase either individual tickets or a full table, be sure and visit our ticket page.

Potty Breaks

We have a whole team of volunteers that are happy to take your pup on a potty break if necessary. Just hold up your Potty Break paddle and someone will be happy to take Rover potty so you don’t miss any of the show!

Special Add-Ons

In addition to just being Nashville’s “Best Charity Event” two-years-running, you can add-on to your party experience by hiring an NHA puppy escort! Check out all of our add-on experiences on our ticket page.

It’s all for the pets

Unleashed is one of Nashville Humane’s four ‘signature’ fundraising events. As an entirely gift-based not-for-profit NHA relies on events like these to raise funds to support the homeless and adoptable pet community in Nashville, middle Tennessee and all across the country. All the proceeds from Unleashed go toward benefiting NHA.
