Metro Animal Care and Control Assisting with East Coast Hurricane Relief Efforts
MACC Receives Cats from South Carolina Shelter
MACC Waives fees through September 30 to Make Additional Room at Shelter
Metro Animal Care
and Control is assisting with hurricane relief efforts as states along the east
coast prepare for hurricane Florence. MACC officials were asked to take
in cats from an animal shelter in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina. Big
Fluffy Dog Rescue brought four cats to MACC’s shelter yesterday. The four
cats were available for adoption at the coastal shelter and had already
completed stray hold, and are not lost/displaced animals due to the storm.
MACC’s shelter space has been running at capacity and so to
make room for the potential of additional animals from other east coast
shelters, MACC is waiving fees for cats and dogs today thru September 30th.
MACC’s regular adoption fees are as much as $90, but all
fees are waived during the adoption promotion. All adopted pets at MACC
will come spay/neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on all vaccinations. If residents are not able to adopt, they can still help by
providing a safe and loving environment shelter residents by becoming a foster
parent for a week. Pet fostering is flexible enough for most lifestyles and all
veterinary care, medication and care supplies are provided by MACC.
MACC is open seven days-a-week for adoption from 10 a.m.
until 4 p.m., with special evening hours on Thursday until 6 p.m. MACC is
located at 5125 Harding Place, Nashville, TN 37211.
