Every year in September, Nashville is the favorite place to join animals and animal lovers from all over the US. The dog Festival in Nashville is hosted by the NHA – Nashville Humane Association. This Festival is dedicated to remembering ourselves how our pets are important part of our lives. It is also one of the nicest ways to say „thank you“ to all dog lovers and dogs, and a way of finding new homes for thousands of dogs that are homeless.
As once the executive director of the NHA – Mary Boatfield said, this festival represents a way of encouraging our neighbors to spend a day with animals, and to even adopt one. The main goal of this even though is raising enough money for the NHA to provide them with enough resources for caring about animals that areentrusted to them. The fundraising event will be followed by Music City Mutt Strutt concert. Some of the sponsors of this event are: Pedigree, PetSupermarket, Big Dogs, Fifth Third private bank, Genesco, Freeland Superstore, Baxter & Bailey Company, Greymont, The Farm, The Humane Society, and many others.
