Harley
clear

My husband & I adopted Harley (formerly Tizzy) from the NHA on January 13, 2007. I had just moved to Tennessee to be with him while he is in the Army.

I wasn't working at the time and needed a companion! We were looking for a terrier, and when I saw her little face I had to have her! She had just been spayed a couple days before, and was very quiet and sweet. She was 7 months old. She's now a little over a year, and as hyper and happy as ever!

She loves to run, play with our roommate's St. Bernard "Fiera," wear her spiked collar (makes her feel tough), and cuddle of course. She has to sleep between my husband & me in order to have a good nights sleep.

We love our Harley and couldn't imagine life without her. Thanks NHA!

Lucy
clear

My husband and I adopted Lucy from the Nashville Humane Association July 2006. She had been found wandering around a neighborhood and had been at the NHA for a month. I fell in love with her right away. My husband and I knew it would be a long road with her, because she was scared and shy.

A lot of love, reading up about adopting an abused animal, and patience helped us know how to handle her fear and helped her realize that she was now in a loving home. We have two other dogs we adopted from other shelters and she loves playing with them. She sleeps right next to my head at night (I sometimes can't sleep on one side because she's so close to me). She still gets scared of strangers, but instead of hiding under tables and chairs in other rooms, now she'll just sit next to me or my husband in the same room.

She loves going to the dog park and playing with the other dogs. Lucy dances around when we get home from work and has just completed a 180 in her personality. She's so very sweet and I'm so thankful to the NHA for taking her in and not giving her a time limit to be adopted.

Thank you to the staff and volunteers at NHA for showing her love until she found her home!

Katara
clear

After the death of our canine child left a huge hole in my family's heart, we started looking for our next puppy to love. We visited The Nashville Humane Association where we all fell for this adorable tri-color Shepherd mix, formerly known as LaLa.

Now 8 months old, Katara is our protector. She still has that puppy enthusiasm for chewing, so she "protects us" from anything with fabric on it, as well as ridding our yard of those pesky moles! Her favorite pastimes are stealing tissues to shred and watching the birds from my son's picnic table.

As you can see from the picture, she's adjusted VERY well. Traveling with us on adventures; especially back to Atlanta to see family and chasing balls and sticks all afternoon with her best buds - my son and his friends!

Thanks so much for bringing Katara to our family!

Bullseye
clear

This is Bullseye! We had made several trips to NHA before we found the perfect cat for us. At first we weren't sure why he had been named Bullseye. It seemed like a big name for a little cat. But we found out real fast. Most of the time he has that excited look on his face with his big, beautiful green eyes! He loves to look out the window and watch for us when we come home from work. He also enjoys picking on his older sister, Gretchin. She's also a tuxedo, so they really do look like they could have come from the same litter, even though she's 10 years older than Bullseye.

Bullseye has been a wonderful addition to our family and we love him very much!

Boots
clear

I adopted Boots, named Booties at first, in November of 2005. I was lonely in my apartment and wanted a cat to love. When I visited the Nashville Humane Association, they told me that Boots was shy. Well, that changed when I walked up. She let me pet her and I was smitten from that moment on.

Boots was dropped off at the Humane Association when her Mississippi family lost their home due to Hurricane Katrina. I can tell Boots was traumatized by the storm because she hides from even one raindrop. It has taken some work but she feels very comfortable now in her home.

Boots is a wonderful addition to the family! She is a tabby with some Siamese thrown in. Her Siamese side comes out all the time when I come home from work. She is ready to tell me all about her day. Boots is also extremely loving and affectionate. A pure lap cat if I've ever seen one! And I love it! Thanks to the Nashville Humane Association for loving on Boots until I could adopt her.

Barkley

Hello to all my old friends at the Nashville Humane Association.
My name is Barkley Eugene Hadley-Johnson, but you might remember me as "Tibet." I was adopted by two wonderful gentlemen in June of 2006. Although I missed all my brothers and sisters at first, I learned right away that I was surrounded by love in my new home.

In the year since I left the shelter I've grown from being a tiny lad to a 50 lb. pup (as you can see from the two photos) and my two Daddies dote on me from morning to night. They get a kick out watching me sleep on my back, with my paws outstretched (they can't resist rubbing my belly when I do this).

My owners have brought so much love and happiness into my life, and I do my best to give that much love and affection in return. If there's any other human out there who's thinking about adopting a new pet, RUN, don't walk to the Nashville Humane Association and bring home a new friend TODAY! I promise you won't regret it.

Zoie

I just wanted to say a little about this cute little baby. I went into the shelter just to look about a month after my Pomeranian of 5 years passed away. It was so heart breaking to see all of the animals so cruelly discarded by others. I broke down in tears and about left until I heard the whimpering of a little brown puppy peaking through the slats in the crate. I took her out and played with her for a few minutes and decided that it would be too hard and felt that I was trying to replace the dog that I had loved so much. An employee approached me and asked if I was going to take her and before I could give her my response, that sweet little pup licked my cheek and I couldn't say no. I appreciate all the hard work you put into finding these loving dogs' homes.
