The Nashville Humane Association (NHA) is one of the oldest service organizations in Nashville. The roots of NHA can be traced back to a society founded in 1887 to protect children from inhumane working conditions and draft horses from mistreatment. NHA was incorporated in 1946 to protect the well being of animals in Davidson County. Today, the NHA is committed to finding responsible homes, controlling pet overpopulation and promoting the humane treatment of animals. Over 4,000 healthy and temperamentally sound animals are placed each year into loving homes and over 8,000 animals were spay or neutered throughout our community.
