NASHVILLE, Tenn., September 13, 2018 -- 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.

Metro Animal Care and Control (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.
