Why:  Due to the reduced number of Animal Control Officers in the field, we will only be responding to emergency calls, and the shelter will be closed from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. each day to allow kennel staff a break for lunch.

MACC staff will be limited as a number of officers will be attending training provided by the National Animal Control Association (NACA).

Metro Animal Care and Control is dedicated to providing training for staff to improve facility and field operations.

MACC is committed to the delivery of effective, courteous, and responsive animal care and control services to the residents of Nashville/Davidson County.  MACC’s mission is to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of pets and people in Nashville.  Our goals are to build partnerships within the community to promote responsible pet ownership, decrease the overpopulation of domestic pets through spay-neuter programs, and to place adoptable animals in good homes.
 
MACC in the past year has seen a significant increase in pet adoption and continues to try innovative promotional techniques including the successful Feline Frenzy and Adopt-A-Shelter Dog fee discounts.
