Grover
clear

We adopted Grover in November of 2007 - we haven't had him very long, but we couldn't love him more! He has more energy than we bargained for, but this has turned out to be a good thing! He loves to play, inside and outside, and will go anywhere as long as we're with him!

He is a wonderful companion for us, and our cat likes him, too (most of the time)! We just gush over him all the time, and are already contemplating expanding our family even more - we'll head to NHA when we do!

Thanks for all you do for the animal community of Nashville!
Sincerely,
Chelsey and Taylor Franks

Riley
clear

Adopted Riley (formerly Bagheera) in May of 2006. He was just 8 weeks old and only weighed 3.5 lbs! His little front legs were all shaved where he had had IV's because he was dehydrated. He was so tiny! The tag on his crate said he was a Shi-Tzu mix, a perfect small dog that would do well in our small apartment. Boy were we wrong!

Riley kept growing and growing and growing! Now, 1 1/2 years later, he weighs 80 pounds! But that just means more dog to love! Riley loves sitting outside on the porch and watching the birds and squirrels. And he never gets tired of playing catch.

We are so glad that NHA provides such an awesome opportunity for so many animals to find loving homes.

We love our mutt!

Lala
clear

We met Gypsy Lala in May 06 when she went by the name "Monkey". She was the first cat we looked at and stayed our favorite even after looking at all the others. She rubbed up against us and purred, which was weird since her name tag said she was shy. She is still shy around new people, but I guess she just knew we were going to be her parents! We couldn't wait to get her home and take her to the pet store to buy her everything! Lala is such a funny cat - she has never meowed and only makes noises that other animals make (like owls, monkies, and birds). She licks my face first thing in the morning when my alarm clock goes off, follows me around everywhere in the house, and talks to me all day long. When I'm sad, she's always there to do her best to cheer me up - and it always works! She sleeps, eats, watches tv, and plays video games with us.

We love her more than words could ever express, and we know she loves us, too. Animals can give you what no one else but God can and that is unconditional love. We don't know what we would ever do without her!

Thank you for giving us such a great pet who has been nothing but love and purrfection!

Zeus
clear

Since moving to Nashville from Chicago gave me a serious system shock, I decided it was time to make a new friend no matter how furry they might be. We decided that it would be best to give a dog a new home that really needed a second chance and some love. We found an affectionate Basenji Mix named Zeus, and he has been the most active and loving dog we could ever ask for!

Thank you so much Nashville Humane Association!

Jake
clear

This is Jake. I adopted him from NHA in Dec. of 02, a few months after losing my Chocolate Lab. I went to the NHA to get another Lab, but Jake (he was called 'Mapco' there, because that is where he was found) was in the next cage to the Lab I was looking at. I didn't want an older dog, I wanted a Lab puppy, but Jake just wagged his tail and didn't take his eyes off of me. I finally asked to see him, and he came right over to me and put his paw on my knee, and I knew this was my dog. Little did I know, he'd turn out to not only be my best friend, but he saved my life.

Jake was the best behaved boy ever and never woke me when I slept, except this one morning about a year after I adopted him. He was licking my face frantically. He woke me up because I was having an asthma attack in my sleep. I went to the E.R., and the doctors' there told me if Jake hadn't woken me, I would have died.

Jake is an angel with 4 legs and invisible wings...but an angel.

Bonnie Mae
clear

This is Bonnie Mae. Apparently, she had been at the shelter for most of her life. When we bought our new house with the big fenced in yard, I wanted a dog right away. I wanted a big dog. Little did I know that she would be so loveable. She wants to be loved and petted constantly. She loves to hop up on the couch and cuddle to a good movie. I couldn't have imagined a more loving animal.
Because she was a part of the PPAWS Program (Prison Puppies Achieving Worthy Service), she was leash and potty trained. She also knew some basic commands, such as sit and strangely enough, kiss. She loves our cat, who we also got from the Humane Association. Now, the cat needs to learn to love her back. We would recommend that anyone looking for a pet go see the folks at the Nashville Humane Association.

Thanks so much!
Tracy
