Nearly 250 pets from three shelters in the Middle Tennessee area were adopted to their fur-ever homes during Mars Petcare’s 10th annual adoption weekend held last Saturday and Sunday. On these days, Mars Petcare covered all adoption fees for pets adopted from Metro Animal Care & Control, Nashville Humane Association and Williamson County Animal Center in an effort to help eliminate pet homelessness and provide critical support to local shelters.
Logan Ryan, cornerback for the Tennessee Titans and pet adoption advocate, stopped by the Nashville Humane Association to greet new pet parents and cuddle up with some adoptable pups.
Mars Petcare is making it easier for people to welcome pets into their homes, no matter where they live. It’s all a part of Mars Petcare’s BETTER CITIES FOR PETS™ initiative, which brings the voice of pets and their owners to places of influence, advocating for fewer pets in shelters, more pet-friendly places and happier, healthier lives for both people and pets.
