We’re Here to Help.
In 2019, Nashville Humane launched our Community Resource program to not only help pets, but pet people and pet-owning families in our community. We are driven to be more than just a great place to adopt dogs, cats, puppies and kittens (which we are), we also want to support our community and the pet-loving people who are our neighbors and friends.
Our goal is to preserve the human-animal bond whenever possible, because we believe the best “shelter pet” is one who never makes it to the shelter in the first place. Our pets are family, and if we can help preserve pet families and keep pets in the home – where they belong – and out of shelters, we can focus shelter resources on those most at risk and pets without homes.
The mission of Nashville Humane’s Community Resource Program is to provide resources to the community and assist pets and pet-owning families. Among the many services we provide, we offer resources for behavioral training, food through our Darcy Lashinsky Memorial Food Bank, Crisis Fostering for owned pets, rehoming guidance, financial support for ill or injured pets, training and pet deposit relief, and a Directory of Resources.
