Lilly
clear

Please meet our dog, Lilly who was adopted from the Nashville Humane Association in April 2010. We had just lost one of our dogs, Chester, after having him for 17 wonderful years. Lonliness cannot express what we, along with our dog Lucy, were feeleing. I thought I would go "just to look" at what the shelter had to offer.

After looking at a lot of dogs, we came to Lilly's cage. She was not barking or jumping like the other dogs were. She just sat there pleading with her beautiful brown eyes. My heart, as well as my mother's and nieces, Chloe and Alley, instantly melted.

We took her for a walk and before that walk was over my mother and I were both crying with happiness! I called my husband and said that "I am brining Lilly home -- tell Lucy she has a new sister!"

She is the most loving dog, and we could not have found a better match for Lucy. Thank you for the Nashville Humane Association for bringing such joy into our lives!

Brutus
clear

I wanted to send a picture of the little guy we adopted in April, so everyone could see what he looks like a little older! His name was Sam, but now he goes by Brutus. He has been doing wonderful, and he loves especially to play with other animals every chance he gets!

Baxter
clear

Hi, my name is Carrie and I adopted Baxter, formerly "Johnny" from NHA right before Christmas. I just wanted to send you guys an email to let you know how great he is doing.

I came to NHA that day in search of a sweet dog as a Christmas present for myself. Baxter is 5 years old, and at first like most people I was hesitant about adopting an older dog, but having him has completely changed my thinking. When I got Baxter home I discovered that he was already house broken, knew several tricks such as sit, shake, lay down and roll over. Baxter is still a very active boy, and loves to go walking or jogging with me either in the neighborhood or in Centennial Park. He goes almost everywhere I go!

Your staff was also extremely helpful with making sure that Baxter was the right fit for my home since I also have two cats and wanted to make sure that he would do well with them. A staff member brought a cat into a visitation room with Baxter and I, so that I could see how he would react to cats. Of course being his sweet self, he just wanted to lick the cat and play. Baxter and my cats now sleep and play together (as you can see in the picture attached).

He and I couldn't be happier that I brought him home that day from NHA. Hopefully, someone who is looking for a dog will see this and give an older doggie a chance. Baxter and I have been thinking about coming back again to see if we can find him a doggie friend.

Thank you so much NHA.

Harley
clear

I found Harley (formerly Shelby) at the Humane Assoc. in February 2010. I had originally gone in to volunteer at the shelter and decided to adopt a dog. I had looked at almost every dog in the place before I found her. She was quiet and sweet. She followed me into the play area and immediately stole my heart.

Immediately, I called my boyfriend to swing by the shelter before making our important decision. We could not have been more pleased with our choice. Harley, as she is now called, has been a quick learner! She was potty trained within the first 3 weeks and learned sit, paw, and come within a month. Many people compliment her sweet face and she loves to give kisses to every stranger she meets.

Thank you so much! We may even adopt another special pup from the Humane Association very soon.
