Adopt A Shelter Dog Month Is Here Again

Adopt A Shelter Dog Month Is Here Again

Shelter dogs have a special place in my heart, both specifically and broadly. I adopted my dog Ella from a shelter, and she’s been my best friend ever since. That became part of the inspiration behind my regular offers to sponsor adoptions or fostering through Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.

From time to time, MACC launches adoption events that make that sponsorship offer partly or totally unnecessary (though it’s still always on the table), and October brings one of those times. This month is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and in celebration, MACC is giving new pup parents the chance to save the money they would’ve spent on adoption fees and put it toward fun stuff, like toys and treats.

You have a few days left to take advantage: Now though October 9, all dog adoptions ar just $15 (if you’re looking for a cat to add to your family, cat adoption fees are just $10, too). October 1 was also National Black Dog Day, and although we’re a few days past, that’s something I wanted to call attention to too (I’ve mentioned this before, but black dogs are far less likely to be adopted than other pups, and because of that, they’re euthanized at a much higher rate nationwide).

If you’re looking to bring some love, friendship and great furry cuddles into your life, check out some of the beautiful black pups up for adoption at MACC now, below. (There are many other dogs waiting for their forever homes at MACC too, and you can see a longer list of them here.)

Looking for a stately, mature gentleman? Morgan is about 8 years old, and he’s been at the shelter since August, waiting patiently for his new people to come let him share lots of grey-muzzled love.

If you’ve been lamenting the loss of baseball great Yogi Berra in September, go down to MACC to meet the lovable young Lab that bears his name. Yogi is about 5 years old, and as you can see, has a smile that gives off the wisdom and charm of his namesake.

This pretty lady has the puppy-dog eyes down pat — and she is still a puppy, at about 9 months old.

Little Jam is a young Pit mix — she’s not quite a year, and ready to grow up by your side.

Labrador Retrievers are known for being master cuddlers, so if that’s what you’re in the need of, drop by to meet 1-year-old Timmy.

Take a look at that face: 2-year-old Lab/Pit mix Eli clearly has lots of personality.

MACC is located at 5125 Harding Place, Nashville, TN 37211 (615-862-7928), and you can find more info here. If you don’t make it down to MACC by October 9, my offer always stands: I’d be honored to sponsor your dog adoption. Just reach out and let me know.
