The Humane Society holds a number of events throughout the year and are dedicated to controlling the pet population, finding homes for pets in need, and for eradicating mistreatment of animals. (They place about 2500 animals each year.) Humane Society volunteers brought these two dogs to the park today in hopes of finding homes for them. Oscar (left)is a 3- or 4-year old Jack Russell and Chihuahua mix. Pepe (right) is a 2-year old Cocker mix. Both dogs were very friendly and quiet. I hope someone adopted them.
A note of interest regarding the Humane Society: Founded in 1887, the Nashville Humane Society is one of the oldest service organizations in the city. Originally, the NHS fought to protect children and draft horses from mistreatment.
Up next for the Humane Society is Dog Days and The Mutt Strutt on September 20.
