Shelter Holiday Hours

In an effort to better serve you during the holiday season, the Nashville Humane Association will be open for extended hours on:

Monday, December 23rd 10am-7pm.

The Nashville Humane Association will be closed in observance of the holidays on December 24th and 25th.  Additionally, we will close at 3 p.m. on December 31st and will reopen at 10 a.m. on January 2nd, 2014.


Stocking Stuffers and Gifts

Pet Adoption Certificates
Give the gift of home to a shelter pet, and it will keep giving for years to come.  Buy a certificate before the holiday, and let your friend or loved one pick out their new furry family member.

Alternative Gifts
Need a gift for the person who has everything?  Give an Alternative Gift from NHA!   You can make a virtual purchase of many items such as vaccinations, food and spay/neuter procedures, in honor of that special friend or relative.  To purchase a gift, please click here.
Holiday Pet Wish Tree
If you are in the neighborhood and would like to cuddle up with some of our furry residents, please consider dropping a gift for them under our Wish Tree.  With every donation, your gift makes the holiday a little brighter for our little guys and gals.  For a complete list of wish list items, please click here.

For Christmas 2013 we also have an NHA store full of stocking stuffers! We have holiday ornaments, NHA rubber bracelets, Window Clings, Stickers, Carabiners,  Baseball Caps and Koozies! You can purchase any of the items at the shelter for a small donation.
