Blitz
clear

On May 15th, I adopted a dog, Blitz from the Nashville Humane Association - actually from the traveling truck (Teddy's Wagon) parked near Nashville Holistic Pets. I fell in love with his sweet and calm disposition after looking at, and missing out on adopting a few other dogs. I am so happy I found Blitz, as I can't imagine having any other dog now. He has been a wonderful pet - my roommate and I, as well as all our friends, love him very much. He is now just over 6 months old and is starting to learn his basic obedience commands (Except that he thinks "no" means "rollover!"). He has become a fun jogging buddy for me, as well as a fantastic cuddle buddy. He is starting to learn how to play with other dogs, which he was very scared of before. I just wanted to let the Humane Association know that things are going well, and that Blitz seems to be pretty happy!

Thanks so much,
Sonja Brooks

Benji
clear

Hi, my name is Jill and I adopted 'Benji' from the NHA with my brother about a month ago. We weren't really looking for a new pet, but we enjoy going to the shelter just to spend some time with all the animals. We looked at many dogs, and took them out one at a time. Benji was one of the first I saw, and he stared up at us with his bright brown eyes, but didn't get up. We decided to take out other more energetic dogs first. We were getting ready to leave when I realized we had never taken Benji out! So we went and got him, and immediately realized that we had saved the best for last! He was so sweet and just wanted to cuddle, and already was coming to us when we called. We came back the very next day and took him home.

He is doing GREAT; just the sweetest most adorable lapdog I could have asked for! He gets along with our 10 year old German Shepherd, as well as our cat. Benji is incredibly smart and is quickly learning lots of new tricks! He also just loves going for long walks and playing at the dog park! And best of all, since he is an older dog, we haven't had ANY accidents in the house or chewed up shoes! (My mom really loves that last part.)

Mitten and Pitts
clear

I'd like to thank Nashville Humane for helping me find two loving and adorable cats to keep me and my sister company. My sister and I have renamed Mitten, Thomas, and Pitts, Alexander ("Alex"). Thomas is such an affable cat even though he looks like a linebacker compared to Alex, who is such a sweet and playful kitten. They enjoy playing together and Thomas grooms Alex and takes care of him. Alex likes to do whatever Thomas is doing... whether that's eating from the same food bowl, drinking at the same time, napping, or playing tag with eachother. We've taken them to the Cheekwood Animal Hospital. The nurses and Dr. Crisp are so caring and attentive. Thomas just purrs and preens the whole time as the nurses gush all over him. All my questions and concerns are always answered, and I leave feeling confident that I'm providing Thomas & Alex with the best care possible to keep our forever family.

Thank you!

Sherman and Nay Nay
clear

I just wanted to email you and tell you about these sweet little ones. The striped one is Sherman, my big sweet boy, and the black one is Nay Nay, my little princess. I adopted these two in June of 09 and could not love them more. Everyday, I come home to them and laugh and think of how glad I am that I came to Nashville Humane and found them. I spent months looking for a kitten, and I vistit NHA and took two home the same day.

They play together all the time, get into everything, and make me smile. Sherman loves socks and aluminum foil, and Nay Nay loves to climb and snuggle under blankets! They are so much fun, and I cannot thank you all enough for rescuing them, so I could find and love them!!!

Foster
clear

My husband and I adopted Foster at the first of June, and right from the start, we knew that he was the perfect dog for us. He has settled in very nicely with the family. Everyone who meets him comments on how beautiful, smart and lovey he is. I have a two year old niece who comes over two or three days a week. She and Foster love each other to death. She is a little rough with him sometimes like toddlers will be, but he doesn't mind a bit. He just takes whatever she dishes out with a wag and a kiss. He even does his best to keep her out of the street when we are all in the front yard, running in front of her and herding her back towards the porch. He is very smart and learned to do the herding thing on his own. He also knows how to sit, stay and open the door to his kennel and get in when its unlatched. He is still learning how to shake hands but he will do it sometimes. He is a cuddle bug and will spend hours setting half in my or my husbands lap (he's a little big to get all the way in, but that doesn't stop him from trying!!!). We love him very much and I just wanted to thank all of you for doing what you do, because it's my belief that evry dog and cat needs a good home. I'm glad that we could give one to Foster.

Sincerely,
Angela Hudson

Bane
clear

Picture it: Nashville Pride Event, June 1, 2008, Centinenial Park. It was a warm day, sun shining, and festivities everywhere. We were walking around enjoying the day and listening to the music. Teddy's Wagon was there and we had walked through browsing for our "child." Of course you want to take them all home, but you wait for that one that melts your heart. We decided to continue to enjoy the day, and were in mid-discussion about what we would need for whichever baby we decided to get. There were volunteers everywhere, and apparently "Batman" was not at Teddy's Wagon when we were there. One look into those 8 week old eyes, the one ear that was slightly bent at the tip, and we were stuck.

Today, Bane (Batman), is happy, healthly, and is loved more than a fat kid loves cake. We are planning to return to adopt a brother very soon, and find the one that melts our heart a second time. Thank you NHA for your time and dedication so people can find their furry friend!

Miller and Sheba
clear

I met and adopted Miller in the spring of 2009. He stood out because he was so gentle. Soon he was a welcome addition to my home. I kept his original name because he seemed to like it. He certainly is well behaved and probably missed from his former home. Miller knows how to have fun and is a joy to have in my home. Miller is so friendly and gentle... I knew he would make a great friend.

Sheba (formerly Cindy) was adopted in September as a welcome add to our family. She is very much like Miller in that she is shy, but well behaved. They have tons of fun playing and their energy warms our home. They are loyal and well compatible friends already.

Really, try it-adopting from Nashville Humane Association is a way to bring love and fun into your home.

Tubbie
clear

To my friends at the Nashville Humane Society:
I came to the shelter this past May to take a look at the kittens. It was a hard decision to pick just one, I wanted them all!! There was a little guy hanging out by himself, and after I held him I knew I had to have him.

This little boy has been the biggest blessing in our home. He never meets a stranger, always ready to jump up in company's lap and share his love. I cannot tell you how thankful I am to have Tubbie (formerly Sabir) as an addition to our family. It is always non stop action and entertainment. I have attached some pictures for enjoyment - have you ever seen a cat play fetch? He is just too much for words.

Thank you so much for everything - and Tubbie thanks you too!!

Fred Jones
clear

I adopted Fred Jones from the shelter in January 2006 after the death of one of my two cats. His name at the shelter was "Big Orange," but as you can see from the picture he thinks he's human and therefore I gave him a more appropriate name -- Fred Jones.

He likes to sit in the chair at the kitchen table and is a great conversationalist. He probably would enjoy fine wine if I ever gave him any (which I won't). He made friends with and gets along well with Frisbee, a long-haired black cat I had previously. He has done quite well in his new home as his 16 1/2 pounds can attest to.

Abby
clear

My wife and I visited NHA on March 6th, 2008 when we found Abby. We looked at almost every dog there before I saw Abby, and when I met her I knew she was the one. She watched every move we made as we walked by, and when I reached over to pet her she gave me a gentle lick on the face. I think it was her way of telling me that she was coming home with us. It has been two years and 9 months since she has joined our family, and I couldn't imagine us without her. Some of her favorite things include sleeping on the recliner, riding in the car, going on camping trips, playing with her soccer ball and walking on the green way.

Thank you so much to everyone that works with NHA so that these pets have a second chance at a good life.

Bodie
clear

My wife, Patty and I went to the Nashville Humane Association in March 2010 to adopt a dog we'd looked at the previous day, but he had already been adopted when we returned. We took a few dogs out for walks, but we didn't hit it off with any.

On our way out, my wife insisted we take Bodie (formerly known as Rocky Road) out for a walk just because he looked like he needed it. I was adamant about not adopting Bodie because he had the furriest coat at the shelter, and I am not a fan of shedding. However, his great behavior on our walk convinced us to take a chance on him.

NHA had very little information about Bodie, but he has turned out to be an amazing dog. He's already breezed through beginner and intermediate training classes, and we plan to take him to advanced and tricks classes this year. He loves working for treats, and he handles our crazy schedules very well. The shedding has not been a problem with regular brushing either. We are hoping to get Bodie a friend sometime this year so hopefully he will be by to visit soon.

Thank you for all you do!
