Volunteers and Foster


Volunteers and fosters are an integral part of the Nashville Humane Association family. It’s volunteers and fosters that help make our program successful, their work directly contributed to our 99% save rate, and they are the lifeblood of our team. Simply, if we didn’t have such an amazing group of kind and caring ‘friends of shelter pets’ to dedicate their time and energy, we wouldn’t exist.  On behalf of every dog, puppy, cat and kitten, thank you barks and meows go to you!

Foster Information: 


Fosters truly do save lives. Fosters allow us to provide medical care to animals in need, special attention to pets who do not thrive in a shelter environment, bottle feedings for baby kittens and so much more. Fosters open up space at the shelter that give adoptable animals a second chance at an amazing life. If you’re interested in joining our NHA foster family, you can complete a Foster Application. If you’re interested in learning more about foster opportunities and other useful fister information, visit our Foster Information page, or email foster@nashvillehumane.org.
