What is Managed Placement and How Does This Impact Owned Animals?
In accordance with NHA’s mission, the organization is committed to providing each animal within our shelter optimum care and housing. To that end, we operate a managed placement shelter. This comprehensive approach ensures our focus on our mission to rescue, shelter, heal, adopt and advocate for animals in need and provide compassionate care for the sick, injured and abused animals who have no one else to care for them and rely on us for a second chance at a good life. These policies ensure the health of the pet(s) being rehomed through Nashville Humane, with emphasis on the health of the animals already in our care.
Families considering rehoming their pet are first given the opportunity to connect with our Safety Net Resource Coordinator regarding their pet’s issue(s). Our goal is to provide families with sustainable resources and in this – to encourage responsible pet ownership resulting in the pet remaining with those who love them. Our comprehensive directory features resources ranging from medical, behavioral, economic, housing and beyond. To learn more of what resources exist, click here.
We believe managed placement will help keep more pets with their people, provide greater care to the animals entrusted to us and ultimately save lives.
