Friends of MACC strives to amplify MACC’s impact by supporting lifesaving initiatives and engaging the community to prevent pet homelessness in Davidson County. Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) is Nashville’s only open admission shelter, which means the shelter helps stray, abandoned, and injured animals whenever they need a safe place. Friends of MACC provides funding and advocacy to increase MACC’s ability to save more lives.
As a volunteer-led nonprofit, Friends of MACC contributed $0.94 of every dollar spent in 2021 directly on programs, animals, and families in Nashville. The money raised for the shelter will allow us to continue providing much-needed resources to MACC. For instance, last year Friends of MACC:
> Supported MACC in saving the lives of nearly 4,000 homeless, stray, and injured animals
> Funded 70+ lifesaving surgeries though the Emergency Medical Fund
> Helped provide free food to 2,400 families through the Safety Net Program
> Created 2,300 square feet of new outdoor play yards
> Funded 500 free microchips to community pets
Friends change everything, and together, we can change the future of animal welfare here in Davidson County.
