Bug
clear

We adopted Bug on February 20th. She is the older Shih Tzu that was from the puppymill that was busted at the beginning of February. Well, we named her Bug or Bugaboo. It fits her personality and she now recognizes when we call her name. She is not nearly as skiddish as she was and is actually bonding with our Golden Retriever, Molly. Bug is pure attitude and full of character. My boyfriend and I just love her so much, and she is such a welcome addition to our family. We are working on crate training and leash walking, and that was slow at first but is now coming along very nicely. She sleeps in our bed each night and is so cute because she snores a little and makes "cooing" noises. Her favorite place to be is on the sofa and she has no qualms about letting me know when it's time for me to pick her up and put her there. Today, we are enjoying a lazy Saturday on our back deck. She is the sweetest little dog ever! She has come a long way since we adopted her, and it is so wonderful to see her happy, content and secure. We are looking forward to our life with her!

Thank you!

Max and Sollie
clear

I adopted two cats from the Humane Association last year, and wanted to give you an update on how the catskis are doing. I adpoted Maximus last February and Solomon (originally "Honeybear") last October because Max needed a friend and an impetus to exercise a little more (he was named Maximus for a very good reason). Max and Sollie became fast friends, and I adore them both! They're both extremely affectionate, silly, and well-behaved, and they're fantastic cuddlers. Sollie likes to curl up on my chest when I read, and Max follows me around my house like a shadow. I love coming home to them everyday, and my friends love to come over and play with them. I'm so thankful to the Humane Association for introducing me to such lovely fellas!

Thank you!

Fred
clear

My family was looking to adopt a cat to make our family whole. We came to the Nashville Humane Association hoping to find a match for us. After walking up and down the aisle in the cat room (about 20 times), talking to each cat, and even holding a few, my eye kept drifting back to this little gray sweetie. I had looked online before coming to the shelter, and saw a cat that I was sure to adopt, yet for some reason the gray cat just stood out. So we ended up choosing him. That was the best choice we ever made! His name was Ernie, and he was there with his brother Bert. We've now changed his name to Fred and love that cat to death. He is the most confident, loving, playful, outgoing cat that I've ever seen. He's number 1 and he knows it. Thank you Nashville Humane Association for allowing us to have this wonderful creature.

Thank you,
Kimberly Holland

Roscoe and Sheba
clear

 

I wanted to share our adoption story with you. We went to the shelter just before Christmas looking to get a cat/kitten friend for our stray kitten who adopted us in October 2010. My husband and I split up with the kids, I going to the cat room and my husband wandering off to the dog area. I quickly found a beautiful all black girl named Midnight (now Sheba) with a very sweet disposition who was about a year old. My husband came in to tell me that we needed to go look at the puppies. I said Sure we can always get a cat and a dog."

Upon entering the room, the first kennel to my right had a sweet little boy who was shaking. We went and looked at the other pups, but I came back to Dax (now Roscoe) and took him out. The instant we picked him up, we knew he needed to come home with us.

We brought both Roscoe and Sheba home and they are both so loved and have fun everyday playing with all their friends - Roxie our female lab/shepherd mix we adopted from NHA 8 years ago has decided that Roscoe is very fun to play with and cuddle with, and Sheba and Hayley (our stray kitten) have decided Roscoe is a strange looking cat who is both a fun playmate and sleep mate as well. Our family couldn't be a happier or livelier one! Thank you for all you do - we love Nashville Humane Association!

Sincerely,
Chris Strong & Andrew Klopfer
