As you all know, many parts of middle Tennessee were greatly affected by the damaging tornadoes Tuesday night. While there are many agencies available to help the folks that lost homes and give them shelter, often their pets are overlooked. Displaced residents are not able to take their pets with them to the Red Cross shelters, which adds even more worry to their stressful situation. There are also all of the animals that were frightened and bolted, along with the injured. The Nashville Humane Association has stepped in to lend a hand to the affected families and animals of middle Tennessee. They are helping set up animal shelter locations, as well as collecting monetary and supply donations. Supplies consist of leashes, collars, crates, dog/cat beds, dog/cat food, cat litter, etc. If you would like to make a donation of any kind to help these families and their animals out, please contact:
The Nashville Humane Association at
They will be happy to direct your call based on the type of donation.
