NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — There's a free pet adoption event happening at Metro Animal Care and Control.

Through November 27th, all adoption fees will be waved. They say they have dogs, cats, and even three rabbits needing forever homes.

In addition, they're looking for volunteers to help provide temporary homes for animals from November 27th through November 30th as part of the "Thanksgiving at Your Place" Bow Wow Breakout event. The reason is that the shelter is closed on November 28th and 29th.

"We are so thankful each year for the community support for homeless pets around the holidays," Dr. Staci Cannon, medical director at Metro Animal Care and Control, said. "Our shelter dogs would greatly benefit from a few nights snuggled into a foster home for Thanksgiving! It's easy to help out, and the pets will be grateful to join your family for the holiday while the shelter is closed."

All adoptable dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

Metro Animal Care and Control is located at 5125 Harding Place. Metro Animal Care and Control is open for adoption Monday-Wednesday 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Thursday 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Friday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
