Metro Animal Care and Control Launches “Saving Lives Through Photography”

10/25/2013

Volunteer Event to take place Saturday October 26

Metro Animal Care and Control (MACC) is kicking off its “Saving Lives Through Photography” with the help of Hands On Nashville volunteers.  Volunteers will be helping prepare an outdoor photo studio for adoptable pets.  Volunteers and staff will be planting flowers and decorating the outdoor space for fall with pumpkins and more. Afterward, volunteers will be able to experience a photo shoot starring the day’s featured performers; adoptable dogs!  

The goal of Saving Lives Through Photography is to take the shelter out of the animals and show each animal’s unique personality using innovative and creative photography.   Shelters typically see dramatic increases in adoptions with appealing photos online.

WHAT: Saving Lives Through Photography Volunteer Event

MACC is committed to the delivery of effective, courteous, and responsive animal care and control services to the residents of Nashville/Davidson County.  MACC’s mission is to promote and protect the health, safety and welfare of pets and people in Nashville.  Our goals are to build partnerships within the community to promote responsible pet ownership, decrease the overpopulation of domestic pets through spay-neuter programs, and to place adoptable animals in good homes.
 
MACC in the past year has seen a significant increase in pet adoption and continues to try innovative promotional techniques including the successful Feline Frenzy and Adopt-A-Shelter Dog fee discounts.
