Maybe they were abused, neglected, or just dumped. They may be missing an eye, have a flop ear, or are elderly. They might not hear well. They all have one thing in common: They need a loving home!
All the Nashville area animals listed here need that extra attention or that extra love. They have a spark, something special or unique. They’re not always the cuddly cute baby animal or expensive show animal, but they will love you and want to be by your side forever. They just need the chance.
If you cannot adopt, consider a donation to the agencies that saved these special pets. The pets here are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and some are house trained/crate trained and may know basic commands.
Please let the adoption agency know you saw them here first!
ADOPT, don’t SHOP!
