Free Feral Cat Mondays

The Nashville Paw Foundation has once again partnered with the Pet Community Center to provide free spay and neuter for local feral felines this spring. Founded by Natalie Corwin, the Pet Community Center’s “Feline Fix” program has sterilized more than 1,000 feral cats—and typically has over 800 on a waiting list at any given time!

Feeding Frenzy: The changing landscape of the pet food industry

Many pet lovers have special memories of furry friends and the time they spent together in their youth. One of my fondest memories centers on spending the summer with my Grandma’s retriever, Red.

Restraining Rover on the Road

The only thing my dog Dodger loves more than riding in the back of our SUV is leaping back and forth from the rear cargo area to the backseat. That type of system probably won’t land me on a top ten list for safe travelers, yet I was never bothered by Dodger’s acrobatics nor thought much about it—that is, until the birth of my son, Alex.
