NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — On Christmas Eve, the Nashville Humane Association made one last push for families to give the gift of a loving home to animals in need.
At the start of the day Christmas Eve, the NHA was looking for loving homes for the 14 dogs and two cats still in their care.
It was the first time they opened for adoptions on Christmas Eve.
Families filled the shelter and took home about half of those dogs on Monday by the time they closed at 3 p.m.
Although every animal didn't find their forever home, the rest will be spending Christmas with foster families.
The Nashville Humane Association will reopen Wednesday with a shelter full of several new animals they're expecting to come in.
