NHA has been voted “Best Shelter” and “Favorite Not-For-Profit” year over year, and is proud to have a save rate of 99%.
In 2019, we continued to make great strides in improving and iterating on all operations at the shelter. Our goal is to fix issues as they arise, but to never become complacent and always look at our systems and process and how we can improve them. Here’s a brief look at 2019 by the numbers:

3,524 homes for homeless and adoptable pets in 2019
In 2019, NHA celebrated a save-rate of 99 percent!
Assisted 47 unique urban and rural shelter partners
In 2019, 1,310 total animals that benefited from NHA’s transport program.
NHA logged 10,631 volunteer hours.
In 2019, one-third of all the animals that we serviced participated in our foster program for a total of 1351!
The Nashville Humane Association (NHA), incorporated in 1946 to protect the well-being of animals in Davidson County, is one of the oldest service organizations in Nashville. The roots of NHA can be traced back to a society founded in 1887 to protect children from inhumane working conditions and draft horses from mistreatment.

While our location and logo (Don’t you just love Rover and Fluffy?) have changed throughout the years, our devotion to being a voice to those without one has remained steady and strong.
