The shelter is waiving all adoption fees until March 19 to encourage Nashvillians to adopt a dog (or really, any pet). Folks will still need to meet with adoption counselors before taking home a new friend.
MACC spokesperson Rebecca Morris encouraged people to take home a pet:
Nobody wants to see these incredible animals placed into loving homes more than our staff who have bonded with them, but the reality is that we are out of space. By adopting one of our shelter pets this weekend, you’ll not only save that pet’s life you’ll help us help create space to care for the hundreds of new pets entering our care every week through no fault of their own.
