Unleashed: Dinner with Your Dog

Presented by PEDIGREE®

Saturday, May 28


The 12th annual Unleashed: Dinner with your Dog benefitting Nashville Humane Association will be held Saturday, May 28 at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.


Learn more about the 2022 Unleashed event here.


Unleashed is electric, and the pups are ready to party! 


Support homeless and adoptable pets while enjoying a unique rave party dinner with your two-legged and four-legged friends, all while being entertained by a runway of lovable NHA shelter dogs guided by Nashville celebrities, friends, and supporters. It’s the only gala in town where you’re not dining for pets, you’re dining with pets!  And it’s all benefiting Nashville Humane Association. 


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!


In addition to the dinner and celebrity dog walk, Unleashed includes a silent and live auction with some of the finest Nashville-themed gifts and services to benefit homeless and adoptable animals all throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee. Join us for this year’s themed Rave on Saturday, May 28, 2022.

Comedian Josh Black to Emcee Unleashed Runway


Humorist and comedian, Josh Black is a born and raised North Nashvillian who has many passions, including: fresh music, even fresher sneakers, quality fried fish sandwiches, and the beauty of finding humor in nearly every story.


From an early age, Black has been a disruptive force, challenging the norms and forcing everyone who will listen to think differently. As a comedian and “viral sensation”, Black has used his engaging powers of speech, coercion, observation, and doused them with humor to light the conversation on fire.


He’s a regular at Zanie’s Comedy Club in Nashville, and his social media videos highlighting life in Tennessee have garnered over 25 million views. Black has opened for Bonnie McFarland, and performed with Theo Von, Cipha Sounds, John Crist and Steve Byrne among a host of others.


Josh is accompanied in life by Gianna, his pet Dalmatian.
