Nashville Pet Adoption Centers

Posted by Prentiss Holt on Monday, June 23rd, 2014 at 8:42am.

Some of us consider pets to be a part of our family, more than just something that we simply have as companions. If you are interested in having a new family member, here is a friendly reminder that there are wonderful animals, both young and old, that can really use a home. If you have considered adoption, that’s great, as well. We have a list of rescues and shelters with animals waiting to be a member of your family.

Agape Animal Rescue

  • P.O. Box 292766, Nashville, TN 37229­2766
  • 615­406­7799; info@agaperescue.org

Agape Animal Rescue’s personal mission is to find perfect homes for abandoned and displaced dogs as well as educating the public to be more responsible pet parents. Each dog is tenderly cared for, trained, and even nursed back to health to where they can be adopted. In addition to adoption services, Agape also has a foster care training program, leash manners, house manners, and basic obedience skills.

Bonaparte’s Retreat

  • P.O. Box 150232, Nashville, TN 37215
  • info@bonapartesretreat.org

Bonaparte’s Retreat is another dog rescue, lovingly named after Emmylou Harris’ dog in memory. Volunteers have dedicated their time and effort to assist displaced and abandoned dogs, finding them loving and carrying homes. Bonaparte’s Retreat takes dogs from the Nashville Humane Association that are deemed unadoptable, thus saving many dogs who would have met an unneeded end.

Crossroads Pets­Shop & Adopt

  • 707 Monroe St, Nashville, TN 37208
  • 615­712­9758; storeinfo@crossroadscampus.org

Crossroads Pet­Shop and Adopt is a nonprofit 501©(3) organization that relies on supporters and volunteers to care for both dogs and cats in the community. They not only find homes for abandoned animals, but they also help disadvantaged youth and adults by caring for animals—never underestimate the healing power of these animals! Included with this, Crossroads also has a pet store on their site, with healthy and safe food and toys for your loved ones.

Happy Tales Humane

  • 230 Franklin Rd, Suite 1303, Franklin, TN 37064
  • New Address in the Fall: 4001 Hughes Crossing Suite 161, Franklin, TN 37064
  • 615­791­0827; intakes@happytaleshumane.com

In a brand­new location, Happy Tales Humane hosts adoption events on the first Saturday of the month from 11am through 2pm. They are one of many, very important temporary homes that serves as a no­kill option to homeless and neglected animals. Military folks can also get a discount with ID for all adoption fees.

Love at First Sight! Puppy and Kitten Adoption Center

  • 4423 Murphy Rd, Nashville, TN
  • 615­297­2464; lafspetadoption@aol.com

With a 2012 Award Winner for Excellence in Customer Service, Love at First Sight is one of the bet in the region. Established in 1995, they devote all of their time and resources to adopting out healthy kittens and puppies to responsible pet parents, with an emphasis on education and prevention of pet overpopulation.

Nashville Humane Association

  • 213 Oceola Ave, Nashville, TN 37209
  • 615­352­1010

The Nashville Human Association (NHA) is one of the oldest service organizations in Nashville, founded in 1946 with the mission of protecting the well­being of animals, with roots that can be traced back to even protecting children from inhumane working conditions and the mistreatment of draft horses. Even with adoptions, the NHA is also a great place for resources for lost and found pets as well as medical services if needed.

Nashville Cat Rescue

  • P.O. Box 140898, Nashville TN, 37214
  • 615­596­4471; loveallcats3@hotmail.com

The Nashville Cat Rescue specializes in caring for formerly homeless cats, even rescuing them from high kill shelters. In addition to adoption services, the rescue also has a foster program to help transition cats into new homes. The rescue can also be found at various in­store locations, collaborating with local pet stores – be on the look out!

Clover Patch Sanctuary

  • 615­473­1803
  • Rescues domestic rabbits and guinea pigs

Finally, there is Clover Patch Sanctuary, helping find rabbits and guinea pigs to new homes—yes, rabbits and guinea pigs! With adoption services, the Clover Patch Sanctuary is open to volunteers, having a close knit network of families and friends that keep this wonderful place running. They educate the public as well as adopt out these precious animals.
