The beautiful city of Nashville, also known as Music City, is known for its nightlife, culture, and of course, the musicians that line its streets. It's also becoming known for being one of the dog-friendliest cities in the south! Among the hundreds of pet-friendly options for eating, drinking, and attractions, it's easy for you and your four-legged buddy to go nosing through Nashville together.
One of the biggest organizations in Nashville that's putting on many of the pup-friendly events and fundraisers in the area is the Nashville Humane Association. Founded initially to protect children and draft horses from mistreatment, the subjects have changed a bit, but the message remains the same, protecting and being a voice for those who do not have one. Overall, the human association is dedicated to finding responsible homes and controlling pet overpopulation while also promoting the humane treatment of animals. Through humane education, community outreach programs, pet adoptions, and sheltering, the association is able to help thousands of animals each year.
Another popular organization in Nashville is the Love At First Sight! adoption center. Open since 1995, the organization is committed to finding puppies and kittens loving, safe, and responsible homes. Since it's inception, they've helped over 8,500 pets find loving homes!
Crossroads Pets is another popular organization in Nashville with a different goal - uniting people and animals to help them bond and heal. Through many diverse programs they offer, they bring people from all walks of life together to make differences in the lives of homeless animals.
Though it's $5 for you and your pup to gain entrance to the dog day, Mutt Strutt runners, walkers, and barkers get free admission! Consider attending both events for double the puppy-lovin' that day.
