Nashville Pets Up For Adoption: Meet Bubba, Lady, Rosie & More

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same…

Looking to add to your family and give back to the world at the same time? Maybe it’s the right time to adopt a pet! During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many animal shelters in and around Nashville are still working to fulfill adoptions and place pets in forever homes.

For those looking to adopt, a great place to begin your search for an adorable new companion is at Wags And Walks, where Rosie the dog is waiting patiently, or another local facility. If you aren’t sure if you have time to take care of a pet year round, many shelters also offer opportunities to foster pets until they are placed.

Need some help in your search? Patch and Petfinder have you covered. We create a list each week of all the pets recently put up for adoption in your area. If you’re a dog person, you might like Bubba, an English Bulldog up for adoption. Or if cats are more your thing, there are several great cats available, too. Click on any listing for more information, or to start the adoption process.
