Nashville Humane mission is carried out through the following services and activities:
Nashville Humane places more than 3,300 healthy and temperamentally sound animals into loving homes each year.
Animal Resource Center
Nashville Humane provides information and referrals to individuals calling with animal related questions daily. From animal care, adoption, laws pertaining to animals and more, we can assist!
Lost and Found Pets
A record of lost and found animals from the Metro area are maintained for a period of time in our facility. Our system is updated regularly through daily calls from the public and regular review of the animal's lost and found ad placements in the local newspaper. Many lost Metro pets are reunited with their owners through this service.
Nashville Humane personnel travel throughout Davidson County teaching the responsibilities of pet ownership and humane treatment for all animals. We also schedule group tours of our facility, educating people on NHA’s various roles in the community.
Community Outreach and Spay/Neuter
Rover, our “Big Yellow Bus,” travels throughout Davidson County providing free spay and neuter for those who wish to have their pets altered, yet can't afford it. Rover's mission is to educate the community about proper pet care, in an effort to keep Davidson County pets healthy and decrease the number of unwanted animals.
Volunteers play a vital role in enabling Nashville Humane to accomplish our mission. Volunteers serve in an array of roles from dog walkers to program and event assistants.
Volunteers open their homes to foster sick and injured pets that require around-the-clock-care in a nurturing environment. Foster animals return to Nashville Humane as healthy, well-adjusted pets for placement in the adoption program.
