Volunteering with Nashville Paw

Our volunteers are crucial to the success of Nashville Paw magazine because we are a labor of love with a big mission for the animals!  Behind our free community magazine is a mission to help the animals we share our world with, and behind that mission is a vast group of dedicated individuals who choose to help us remain a voice for the animals. Thanks to the enormous amount of local support we receive, we are able to continue to provide this FREE resource to the greater Nashville community, as well as help fund spay and neuter, animal rescue and more! 

Our amazing team of volunteers makes our mission possible. From delivering free issues to approximately 300 distribution locations to helping us organize fundraisers for spay and neuter to staffing our community festivals and events, our dedicated team works hard to help us realize our collective animal welfare goals.

Delivery volunteers pick up magazine issues 6 times per year (every other month) from our storage facility in Antioch and deliver them to distribution locations among a fixed route. Let us know what area(s) of town you'd be willing to deliver to, and we'll add you to our list. Our delivery volunteers are crucial to our success in getting our publication into the hands of the community... and we always need more help!

Event volunteers help us with everything from planning and organizing fundraisers and events to helping staff educational booths at various festivals. 

Want to get involved? It's fun, and it's a great way to network with other animal lovers! Email us at info@nashvillepaw.com or call us at (615) 474-5710 for upcoming opportunities.
