MACC Best Friends Summer Promotion Lets You Adopt A Dog Or Cat Fee Free
by TJ Anderson
I caught some good light this week in our Nashville home, so my best friend Lucy and I had a photo shoot, evidence above. She’s been with us for going on two years, and she’s made every day better. Dogs are pretty spectacular that way.
Dog adoption is a subject I’m really passionate about, and for years now, I’ve had a standing offer to sponsor a dog adoption through MACC for any friend or client (or soon-to-be client) around Nashville. Let me know your plans, and I’ll cover the fees.
I also like to spotlight MACC’s major adoption promotions, which they often do when the shelter floor is full, and lots of pets are waiting patiently for their forever homes.
One of those promotions is going on right now: MACC has partnered with the Best Friends Animal Society and 270 shelters across the U.S. for the Summer to Save Them All adoption promotion, with a collective goal of saving 10,000 dogs and cats over 10 days. To help push toward that goal, participating shelters like MACC are offering fee-waived adoptions.
If you adopt a dog (or cat) through MACC, your new family member will be vaccinated, rabies licensed, microchipped and spayed or neutered, and during the promotion, you’ll get to skip the usual adoption fee ($90 for dogs, $40 for cats, $60 for kitten).
The fee-waived period kicked off on June 25, and runs through July 3, and MACC is open for meets, greets and adoptions every day at 5125 Harding Place, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Feels like pretty perfect timing: Heading into Independence Day by bringing some freedom to a lucky pup, the added free(dom), fee-wise, leaving you with extra cash for toys and treats.
Adoptable dogs at MACC
Feeling like this might be a perfect time to find your new best friend? Below, just a few of the pups at MACC now, waiting to be adopted:
She’s a 3-year-old brindle Pit mix with the sweetest eyes, and she’s been at MACC for about a month as of this posting. Check out more about Lucile here.
At 5 years old, Lucinda’s grown out of that challenging puppy period, but as you can see from the photo, she’s still full of spunky fun. More about Lucinda here.
Sofie’s a Shepherd mix, probably about 6, and although she’d be small for a dire wolf, she’d still make an excellent Ghost to your Jon Snow. More about Sofie here.
Hard to imagine a more loyal, friendly mix than Shepherd and Lab, like Roo here. She’s about 5 years old, and ready to be your BFF. More about Roo here.
For updates on adoptable pets and more happenings at MACC, follow Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control on Facebook. (The above dogs were available as of this posting, but check with MACC for the latest.)
And if you can’t make it before July 3, my offer stands: I’d be more than thrilled to sponsor your dog adoption through MACC. Just reach out and let me know.
