I also try to share special-occasion events MACC has planned, if you need an extra nudge, like this upcoming weekend’s Shelter Paw-ty, in celebration of National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day.
The event’s set to run Saturday, April 28 through Sunday, April 29, from noon to 4 p.m., with special adoption hours on Sunday. And during those two days, they’re waiving all adoption fees. (For dogs, it’s usually $90.)
The shelter is currently full, so if you’ve been thinking about bringing a new dog into your life, it’s a great time to go by MACC (5125 Harding Place, Nashville, TN 37211) and meet some new friends.
For extra encouragement, I included a few MACC faces below that are looking for their forever homes now:
Need some puppy energy in your life? Don’t let the name give you the cringes — Jar Jar, a 1-year-old Lab, maybe looks a little like his namesake, but he’s definitely more of a Chewie. Learn more about Jar Jar Binks here.
I have a special place in my heart for senior dogs, and 13-year-old Catahoula Leopard Hound mix Blue definitely grabs it. Learn more about Blue here.
Young Jill is about a year old, and with a mix of Boxer and Lab, she’s bound to be an awesome family friend and a great guard dog, too. Learn more about Jill here.
Hope to hear that some of you had a chance to grow your family this weekend. If you can’t make it now, and plan to head to MACC in the future, please let me know. My offer to sponsor your adoption always stands.

"T.J. was the perfect agent for my wife and I. He was highly communicative without being over bearing, and was good at listening to our interests and concerns. He was responsive to our needs, and patient and helpful in guiding us through the whole home selling process. T.J. is highly professional all-around, in his appearance, his actions and his words. I would recommend him without question."
